    }
  }
}

can you do it by the native node or would you have to use http request?

Hey @admdiegolima, sorry for the late answer.

Baserow API doesn’t allow to upload a file and create/update a row at the same time. So if you want to add a file to a row, you have to upload it first with a HTTP POST using a basic n8n request node to the /api/user-files/upload-file/endpoint. As soon as the file is created, with the response content, you can reference it during the row creation.

Try to upload a file with the UI to see how it’s working. You’ll see something like that:

image

The first POST is the file being sent to the server then the response content is used to create a PATCH query to update the row with the new file. You also can also use an another POST to create a row instead of updating one. Alternatively if a file exists already and is referenced elsewhere you can use the same file informations for your row.

Does it help?
