Hello, does anyone know how to retrieve input and send input with content-type multipart/formdata?

when i try to retrieve information, i tried to send the request from postman and restorePipeline but i dont receive any pipeline variable that inputted on the postman.

on the $httpRequest it showed that content-length is very big, but i dont have any content on the pipeline, any idea how to get it as a pipeline variable?

below are the cURL example of the request:

curl --location --request POST 'http://localhost:5555/restv2/' \
--header 'Authorization: Basic QWRtaW5pc3RyYXRvcjptYW5hZ2U=' \
--form 'KodeReservasi="RG7E49082E4W66"' \
--form 'typeLayanan="Pickup"' \
--form 'kodeCabang="ID0010002"' 

also for the second question, how you send the request to the backend with multipart/formdata with pub.client:http?
Thank you

daily bump, i still haven’t found anyway to parse the message, but i found another thread that use pub.mime built in function, have anyone used this?

Hi, firstly you are missing the encoding type in the content type i.e. “multipart/form-data”

You should then expect the following input into your service




Input to pub.mime:mergeHeaderAndBody:
headerLine (it’s from transport/http/requestHdrs)
body/stream (contentStream from the begging in the pipeline)

This was documented here

type or paste code hereCannot extract multipart MIME data sent through REST

Ha, Ha, that’s one of my own, but I didn’t want to blow my own trumpet :kissing_heart:


Thank you @John_Carter4 and @srikanth.prathipati1803 for responding, i will try the solution that u posted, and i will try to update the progress, thank you so much for helping me, i’m very unfamiliar with this pub.mime API

Hi @mcser76 ,
The built-in services reference talks in detail about the pub.mime services , that should help you. It is available at Built in services - pub.mime

In fact ,the mime area can be complex at times, perhaps that’s why it gets its own guide too - MIME SMIME Developers guide

Good luck


Thank You @John_Carter4 , @Nagendra_Prasad and @srikanth.prathipati1803 your solution both are right, now i’m able to retrieve and send request to the backend with contentType multipart/form-data using pub.mime built-in function
