When a file is uploaded, it produces a fileKey.
Note that although this API uploads a file to Kintone, it does not upload the file to an Attachment field of an App.
To upload the file to an Attachment field, the fileKey is used with the Add Record or Update Record API.
No record related permissions are needed, as this API does not directly attach a file to an App.
The request is sent in a multipart/form-data format. Please look through RFC1867 and RFC2388 for more details.
Within the Content-Disposition header, specify "file" for the name parameter and the name of the file for the filename parameter.
Attaching the file to an attachment field
Only 1 file can be uploaded at a time.
After the file is uploaded onto Kintone, the file will be deleted after 3 days if the Add Record or Update Record API is not used.
For other limitations, check the Kintone REST API Limitations.
