REST API image upload

Go to solution Solved by Marc Stridgen,

I must be missing something because I can't upload a picture along with the database record. 

This code works as expected, but fails to add the picture to the featured image field. 

Any ideas what I am doing wrong? Thank you.

$image = array();

$fields = array();
$fields['18']="title test";
$fields['19']="desc test";

$data = array(
	"title" => "title test1",
	"content" => "content test1",
    "status" => "published", // Or "draft" 
	"category" => 19,
	"author" => 191972,
	"fields" => $fields,

      $communityUrl = 'https://www.communityUrl.com/';
      $apiKey = 'apiKey';

      $curl = curl_init( $communityUrl . 'api/cms/records/7' );
      curl_setopt_array( $curl, array(
          CURLOPT_USERPWD		=> "{$apiKey}:",
          CURLOPT_USERAGENT		=> "MyUserAgent/1.0",
		  CURLOPT_POST	=> 1,
		  CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS => http_build_query($data),
      ) );
	 $response = curl_exec( $curl );

If currently there is no way to upload an image to record_image, can IPB please consider adding this to the API?

Also, if the image is already in the media can we update the url of the record's image and set it to the existing file within a media folder?

If that also is impossible, is there a way to create a custom field and set that as the default image field for the database so the image will appear within the record, meta data, feeds etc. and replace the default record image?

Thank you.

Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention! I can confirm this should be further reviewed and I have logged an internal bug report for our development team to investigate and address as necessary, in a future maintenance release.


Shameless Necro 🤷‍♂️

So any news on this? 🤔 I would LOVE to be able to set a records image (either via the code above, or externally via rest API on an upload custom field or something.) and have been waiting since 2021 on direct news about this kinda stuff 😅

There has been a bug fix for this that is not yet tested, so you should see this on future releases. I'm not sure where you have seen 2021 as this topic was opened in April. Some fixes will unfortunately take longer periods of time, due to complexity involved.

My thread (while not 1:1, follows the same gist): 

Then I made a post ~ a year after because posting an image to a database records upload field would also not work, but I stopped getting responses on that thread. 🤷‍♂️ Either way, excited to see this change coming. Really need to go over the updates as I also just noticed new options for OAuth tokens 🙂

That part of the code looks like this

			echo '<br>img: <a href="'.$zimg.'">'.$zimg.'</a>';
			$image_data_base64 = base64_encode($image_data);
			$data2 = array(
			"status" => "published",
			"category" => $cat_id,
			"author" => $author, 
			"fields" => $fields2,
			"tags" => $article_format['tags'],
			"image" => $zzz_image,
			"hidden" => 1,
