I have to create attachments for my issues via GitLab API and it looks like Notes should be the means for it. The files I want to attach reside on my PC. (But it would be ok if the upload worked from a remote server.)
I’ve tried everything I could, but without success: it seems that when you create an attachment using the web interface, a link with a 33 char long id is generated, e.g.
When I follow the Upload a file APIfunction documentation, ie:
curl -X POST -v -# -o output -T somefile.txt -H “PRIVATE-TOKEN: $TOKEN” “https://gitlab.com/api/v3/projects/$PROJECT_ID/uploads”
I receive a 201 created HTTP response and a [data not shown]" as the curl output. Nowhere can I find the id/url for the uploaded file.
PS Just for those who would consider: uploading the files to the repository is not an option.
