What is the Content-Type field value in rest client for Zipped files


I am testing in Google Chrome REST CLIENT. Please let me know what we need to pass to Content-Type when our attachment in ZIP File.

When we pass

"application/octet-stream" for Content-Type field in rest client.

and see in debugging mode

In Method: /IWBEP/IF_MGW_APPL_SRV_RUNTIME~CREATE_STREAM, in parameter ==> is_media_resource-mime_type we are getting value as "multipart/form-data", Due to this reason I am not able to see the actual Zip File XSTRING value.


In my Gateway client when I am passing as below screen shot and I am able to see correct Zip File XSTRING value In Method: /IWBEP/IF_MGW_APPL_SRV_RUNTIME~CREATE_STREAM

Please help.

Below are the F4 values I see in Content-Type field:

  1. multipart-form-dataapplication
  2. x-www-form-urlencodedapplication
  3. jsonapplication
  4. xmlapplication
  5. base64application
  6. octet-streamtext
  7. plaintext
  8. csstext
  9. htmlapplication
  10. javascript
