    Seems like the xcsrf token is not set in the header.

    Try something like this:

    var header_xcsrf_token = sap.ui.getCore().getModel().getSecurityToken();

    var oHeaders = {

    "x-csrf-token" : header_xcsrf_token,

    "slug" :




    type : 'POST',

    url : "/sap/opu/odata/sap/ZC_CI_UPLOAD_SRV/thesises('"

    + sap.ui.getCore().byId(



    + "')/files",

    headers : oHeaders,


    Kind regards,

      Below is the approach that I tried and successfully able to upload.

      Step1: Extend FileUploader (sap.ui.unified.FileUploader)

      Overwrite the Upload method by AJAX call passing X-CSRF-Token"com.ODataFileUploader.Component");"sap.ui.unified.FileUploader");

      sap.ui.unified.FileUploader.extend("com.ODataFileUploader.Component", {

      metadata : {

      properties : {

      "modelName" : "string",

      "slug" : "string",

      "csrf" : "string"



      upload : function() {

      var file = + "-fu").files[0];

      try {

      if (file) {

      this._bUploading = true;

      var that = this;

      var _handleSuccess = function(data, textStatus, jqXHR){

      that.fireUploadComplete({"response": "Success: File uploaded to entity" });

      that._bUploading = false;


      var _handleError = function(data){

      var errorMsg = '';

      if (data.responseText[1]){

      errorMsg = /<message>(.*?)<\/message>/.exec(data.responseText)[1];


      errorMsg = 'Something bad happened';


      that.fireUploadComplete({"response": "Error: " + errorMsg});

      that._bUploading = false;


      var oHeaders = {

      "x-csrf-token": this.mProperties.csrf,

      "slug": this.mProperties.slug,

      "X-Requested-With": "XMLHttpRequest",

      "Content-Type": file.type,

      "DataServiceVersion": "2.0",

      "Accept" : "text/plain, */*"



      type: 'POST',

      url: this.getUploadUrl(),

      headers: oHeaders,

      cache: false,

      contentType: file.type,

      dataType: "text",

      processData: false,

      data: file,

      success: _handleSuccess,

      error: _handleError

      });"File uploading to " + this.getUploadUrl());


      } catch(oException) {"File upload failed:\n" + oException.message);



      renderer : {

    I am developing in SAP UI5 ut i am facing a problem in the Collection upload control.

    I have not been able to push my image or document data into the database.It is showing the error of push property of undefined even if i have defined the variable.var file_Data = btoa(reader.result);
    var fileData = {
    "FILE_DATA" : file_data,
    "FILE_NAME" :,
    "MIME_TYPE" : file.type,
    "SIZE" : file.size,
    "LAST_MODIFIED" : file.lastModifiedDate.toString().substring(0,15),
    "FILE_DESCRIPTION": sap.ui.getCore().byId('idInputFileDescription').getValue()
    var aDocuments = sap.ui.getCore().getModel('idModel').getData().documents;
    var file_data = btoa(reader.result);
    sap.ui.getCore().getModel('idModel').setData({documents : aDocuments},true);
