File upload in RestAssured

Carvia Tech | July 10, 2019 | | 28 views

In this article we will learn how to do file upload to server endpoint using RestAssured library.

Let’s assume you have a controller that accepts a param and a file and returns a json with status. You can write a RestAssured test that will upload a file and check the status, as shown in below code snippet.

The server response looks like this:

File upload response
  "status": true
import io.restassured.http.ContentType;
import org.junit.Test;
import org.slf4j.Logger;
import org.slf4j.LoggerFactory;

import java.util.Date;

import static io.restassured.RestAssured.given;
import static org.hamcrest.core.IsEqual.equalTo;

public class FileUploadTest {

    private final Logger logger = LoggerFactory.getLogger(FileUploadTest.class);

    public void fileUploadTest() {
                .param("param", "foo")
                .multiPart(new File("/path/to/file.json"))
                .body("status", equalTo(true))
