Attachments API

Files can be uploaded to Aha! as a sub-resource on any resource that supports them. These resources support attachments:

The format of an attachment is either a multipart/form-data upload with the input name attachment[data] or a JSON payload pointing to an URL link:

  "attachment": {
    "file_url": "",
    "content_type": "text/html",
    "file_name": "home_page.html"

Reject duplicate attachments

POST /api/v1/notes/:note_id/attachments

If the "If-None-Match" header is passed, Aha! will check the file's MD5 against other files uploaded that also used the If-None-Match header. If a file shares the same file size, name, and md5, a new attachment will not be created, and an HTTP 412 status code will be returned.

note_id *

Numeric ID of the record description for which the attachment should be created
