PHP Upload To Attachment

Hi,

 

I'am a complete newbie to salesforce in fact just got it today.

 

my question is does the PHP toolkit allow file uploads, if so

could somebody show a sample code

 

Thanks in advanced.

The toolkit does not handle the file upload. You take care of that using the standard tools in PHP. The toolkit will allow you to create an Attachment object and set the Name, Body and ContentType. You'll need to call base64_encode() on the uploaded data before populating the Body field.

 

The API documentation has the details of the Attachment object but the only code example I am aware of is in the Force.com Cookbook and is in Java.

Hi,

 I have also same problem of uploading files. I tried your example but it returns this error message -

 

SOAP-ERROR: Encoding: object hasn't 'type' property

 

Please help me with this issue. Or if you have any working code please provide that as well.

 

 

 

Thanks

Try modifying this:

  // the target Sobject
  $sObject = new stdclass();
  $sObject->Name = $fileName;
  $sObject->ParentId = $parentID; 
  $sObject->body = $encoded;
  
  // do upload
  $createResponse = $mySforceConnection->create(array($sObject), 'Attachment');

 to this:

  // the target Sobject
  $sObject = new stdclass();
  $sObject->type = 'Attachment';
  $sObject->Name = $fileName;
  $sObject->ParentId = $parentID; 
  $sObject->body = $encoded;
  
  // do upload
  $createResponse = $mySforceConnection->create(array($sObject));

Just an update on the code, for partner api:
// the target Sobject
$sObject = new stdclass();
$sObject->type = 'Attachment';
$sObject->fields['Name'] = $fileName;
$sObject->fields['ParentId'] = $parentID;
$sObject->fields['body'] = $encoded;
// do upload
$createResponse = $mySforceConnection->create(array($sObject));
