Question:
Can you upload documents with table field data when using the Rest API?

It is possible to upload documents using the Rest API where you can include data for table fields.

Using our Postman collection for example, this can be done using either XML or JSON.

Rest Call Used: {{ServerUrl}}/{{Platform}}/FileCabinets/{{FileCabinetId}}/Documents

JSON Body example;

{
    "Fields": [
        {
            "FieldName": "COMPANY",
            "Item": "Company 1",
            "ItemElementName": "String"
        },
        {
            "FieldName": "TABLE_FIELD",
            "ReadOnly": false,
            "SystemField": false,
            "ItemElementName": "Table",
            "PointAndShootInfo": null,
            "IsAutoNumber": false,
