Attach Files to Defect

Applies to QAComplete 12.84 SaaS, last modified on July 19, 2021

To attach a file to a defect in your project, you call the …/project/{ProjectId}/Bugs/{EntityId}/files (POST) method. The EntityId parameter specifies the ID of the item to which you want to attach the file.

You attach files to items of other types (tests or requirements) in a similar way. Use the corresponding entity code (Tests or Requirements respectively) instead of the Bugs entity code.

Request

curl -v -i -u john.smith@edgb.com:p@ssword POST -F file=@attachment.txt -F title="New Attachment" -F comments="New Comment" -H "Content-Type: application/json" -H "Accept: application/json" http://yourserver.com/rest-api/service/api/v1/projects/11873/Bugs/12/notes

This will attach the attachment.txt file to the specified defect.

Response
