This post is about implementing handling file uploads in Open API with ASP.NET Core. Open API is one way to document REST API endpoints. When we using Web API and
IFormFile class to upload a file, Open API will display a File Upload control in the UI like this.
Here is the action method.
Which will render something like this.
Earlier versions of Open API won’t render it properly. And if we are using multiple
IFormFile elements this won’t work properly. Here is an example.
Which will result something like this.
And if we not using
IFormFile and using
Request.Form object to receive file upload then also it will not render properly. We can fix this by introducing a custom
OperationFilter implementation. Here is the code to manage multiple files.
And we can include this in the UI like this.
Which will render something like this - clicking on
Add string item button will add File Upload controls.
We can modify the
FileUploadOperationFilter code and use the same code if you’re using
Request.Form to accept files in the server side.
Happy Programming :)
