Using HTTP POST method with Postman

I tried the POSTMAN ( for testing my REST web services. It is a good tool and when I used it with the GET method all was ok but with the POST method (I had to upload a photo), some problems occurred because I did not understand how to use the Content-Type parameter. I tried to insert it in the “Headers” tab with other parameters but it did not work.

The solution is to select the form-data option in the “Body” tab, enter a type “File” parameter and then you have to select the file for uploading.

Then if you select the “Generate code snippet” you will see the Content-Type parameter like this:

Content-Type: multipart/form-data; boundary=----WebKitFormBoundary7MA4YWxkTrZu0gW
