Upload file with Cireson api

I am trying to use the api to upload an attachment, but are not succeeding.

In the api I see Projection/Commit has a parameter for fileAttachmentPath. Is this the one to use? How should it be used?

    I don't believe its currently possible/supported to upload a file attachment via the API. Would be a great feature request though!

    Hi Michael,

    ... a little bit late - but I searched for a solution, too and I developed the following approach which works for me (for creating new WorkItems with attachments / latest 2016 Version of the Portal 8.2.x)

    1) upload files using the following ajax call...

    formData.append('files', dataBlob); 
            type: 'POST',
            url: '/FileAttachment/UploadFile/'+workItem.BaseId+'?count='+idx+'&className=System.WorkItem.ServiceRequest',
            data: formData,    

    use the callback data as Input for the pageForm.viewModel.FileAttachment Array

    2) use the following post method to create the workitem

    var postData = encodeURIComponent(JSON.stringify({
           isDirty: true,
           current: workItem       

           url: "/ServiceRequest/Save",
           type: "POST",       
           processData: false,
           ContentType: "application/x-www-form-urlencoded; charset=UTF-8",       
           data: "formJson="+postData,

    Hope this helps
