spring REST template to send fax with attachment


Please find below the REST call to the "send fax" api.

Though the fax is being sent, the attachment is not sent.

Can you please help if the request is missing some entity?

byte[] attachment = getBVendorRenewalLetter();

MultiValueMap<String,Object> bodyMap = new LinkedMultiValueMap<String,Object>();

bodyMap.add("file", attachment);

bodyMap.add("to", "test phone number");

bodyMap.add("Authorization", accessToken);

HttpHeaders headers = new HttpHeaders();


headers.setContentDispositionFormData("content", "testFile.pdf");

headers.add("to", "test phone number");

headers.add("Authorization", accessToken);

HttpEntity<Object> requestEntity = new HttpEntity<Object>(bodyMap, headers);

ResponseEntity<RingCentralResponseDTO> response ="";, HttpMethod.POST, requestEntity, RingCentralResponseDTO.class);

Thank You very much

Yes AK. It did. Thank you very much once again. I used the sample code to use the okHttp Client to make the REST call and it works great !
