Uploading a file using HTTP Post Trigger

Posted by ithrees on 25-Nov-2014 01:59

Hi All,

Is it possible to use the HTTP Post trigger to upload a file in a custom field to another file server before updating the record? I have to use my file server to upload the files and to create the rollbase object record with the information in the response of the file server such path and filename.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Ithrees,

Is there an API to upload the file from Rollbase to your file server? If so, we might be able to upload the file and get the response.

However, this is an inefficient way to upload files because it has to be done twice (Upload to Rollbase then to file server). Have you considered redirecting the user to an external upload page, if any, and use Rollbase SOAP API to update the 'path' and 'filename' field?

Hi Godfrey,

Thank you for your reply. Yes I understand it is an inefficient way to go so I dropped that idea and trying the other way.
