Subject Re: How To Set A Standalone Attachment Content Type

I've been able to create a standalone attachment, but the content_type ends
up as multipart/form-data. What I am I doing wrong?

As shown in the HTTP log, the Content-Type header of the PUT is “multipart/form-data”,
so that’s what CouchDB stores as the MIME type of the attachment. If you want it to remember
a different type, you should send that as the value of the Content-Type header.


  • Unnamed multipart/alternative (inline, None, 0 bytes)
