I have been successfully creating tickets in CA Service Desk using Powershell for a couple years now, but I have been tasked with figuring out how to add an attachment to the ticket.  They way I am doing it currently is, once I have the $accesskey:

        $URIString = "http://$servername:8050/caisd-rest/cr"

        $headers = New-Object "System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary[[String],[String]]"
        $headers.Add("X-AccessKey", $accesskey)
        $headers.Add("Accept", "application/xml")
        $headers.Add("Content-Type", "application/xml; charset=UTF-8")
        $headers.Add("X-Obj-Attrs" , "ref_num")

        $body = "<cr><group COMMON_NAME=`"Security Admin`"/><summary>`"Test Ticket - Please Ignore`"</summary><requested_by COMMON_NAME=`"AutomationReview, UserAccess`"/><customer COMMON_NAME=`"AutomationReview, UserAccess`"/><description>`"Test Ticket - Please Ignore`"</description></cr>"

        $b = Invoke-RestMethod -Method POST -Uri $UriString -Headers $headers -body $body

This works great, but I can't figure out how to add an attachment.  I tried adding "<attachment>`"C:\temp\empID.txt`"</attachment>" to the middle of the body, and while that didn't throw any errors, it didn't seem to do anything.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Hi matrojas,


I don't know how to do it, but you can find a working example for create a Change Order with attachment (in Java) under NX_ROOT\samples\sdk\rest\java\test3_attachments\SampleNewResourceWithAttachment.java.


Hope it helps!
