Binary Async API not working with CONTENT_TYPE: ZIP_JSON
Last updated 2017-10-14 ·Reference W-3882899 ·Reported By 2 users
Uploading a Binary Attachment using Async BULK API is not working with CONTENT_TYPE: ZIP_JSON but works fine with ZIP_CSV
- Step 1 : Create a Job with Content Type : JSON File
curl https://instance.salesforce.com/services/async/39.0/job -H "X-SFDC-Session: sessionId" -H "Content-Type: application/xml; charset=UTF-8" -d @job.txt
In the above Request the job.tx should be in the below format :
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
- Step 2: Create a Batch for Binary Attachment for same Job created in Step 1 :
curl https://instance.salesforce.com/services/async/39.0/job/jobId/batch -H "X-SFDC-Session: sessionId" -H "Content-Type:zip/csv" --data-binary @request.zip
For Creating *request.zip* just follow the steps below :
a). Create a base directory that contains the binary attachments. Attachments can be organized in subdirectories.
b). Create the request.txt CSV, XML, or JSON file in the base directory. The request.txt file is a manifest file for the attachments in the zip file and contains the data for
each record that references a binary file.
c). Create a zip file of the base directory and any subdirectories.
Result : The attached file is getting corrupted.
Use CONTENT_TYPE: ZIP_CSV instead of CONTENT_TYPE: ZIP_JSON in Step 1.
Is it Fixed?
