Upload files using upload api

Question asked by phil89 on Mar 7, 2018

Hey there


I've read a lot and I've no idea whats going wrong while using the upload api. My Alfresco Version is 5.1 and I can't upgrade to 5.2 using :/

I try to upload a normal pdf file and using Postman. I use the basic authentification with username and password. The pdf file ist selected by form-data. Maybe someone can help, or got another idea ?
