HTTPS Post with a flat file

I have a scenario where I am picking up a file from ECC and need to do an HTTPS post to an external web server.

I have created the RFC destination and entered this in the HTTP Destination in the HTTP receiver adapter.  For the Content/type, the default is text/xml.

I want to simply Post the file as is without any conversion.  Do I need to change the Content/type?  The file that I am using is simply a text file with no XML.

    The Java HTTP adapter in PI 7.3 has various options including what we need.  However, we are on PI 7.1 so what do not have that option.

    The HTTP adapter does not have too many options.  Another way maybe to use the SOAP adapter and not include the SOAP envelope - but I am not sure if that would help.

    • Hello Jay,

      The content-type for POST is normally application/x-www-form-urlencoded, can you try it out?

      Also, can you ask the third party to provide you with their service description similar to the screenshot below:

      Hope this helps,
