Upload

With the below description you can upload assets to your Razuna installation remotely.

Regarding SessionToken

You need to have a valid SessionToken to be able to request any method here

Uploading assets remotely

Uploading assets within your application has to actually happen with posting the asset to the Razuna web service. The http protocol allows a multipart/form-data POST (RFC 1867) to upload files. You have to pass the required parameters in the form data. These must precede any multipart form data which contains file content. This allows us to verify security before attempting to accept the upload, if this is not done you will receive an error.

The maximum content size is limited to the maximum content-length in the http request which is: 2GB (2097150 kilobytes). If you exceed the maximum value you get a 10001 error.

How to add metadata to your asset during upload

As of Razuna 1.4.5 you can populate the metadata fields during the upload. For this to work you need to add the field “metadata” to your post with the value “1”. Furthermore, you need to prefix each metadata field with “meta_”. A list of the correct and available metadata fields is available here.

Example: Populate the description, keywords and the location metadata:
meta_img_description = “My description”
meta_img_keywords = “razuna, image, eyes”
meta_location = “New York”
meta_lang_id_r = 1

Important
You DO NOT need to pass a JSON structure. Razuna reads your form fields automatically!

Flash or Flex

If you are using a Flash, Flex or AIR application to upload assets to Razuna you will need to use the URL with parameters since Flash only send the filedata id in the post. So you would use the URL of the form action like: http://demo.razuna.com/index.cfm?fa=c.apiupload&sessiontoken=54592180-7060-4D4B-BC74-2566F4B2F943&destfolderid=1&zip_extract=1
