Updating file item data and virus scan


Hi everyone,

I'm updating a file at StreamWork via the Integration API. (in the item form part I put the xml part, in the file form part I put my file (base64 encoded) unlike described in the documentation)

After several tries I found out how to do it (the documentation lacks here a little bit , not very precise so to say 😊)

Thought its working now.

BUT trying to download it afterwards I get

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>


<http_status>400 Bad Request</http_status>

<message>File download currently not available. It will become available once the file has passed the virus scan.</message>


No surprise my application crashes, since I'm expecting base64 encoded binary data. I didn't came around this issue when posting it as a new file.

How long will this scan take?

Can I prevent the scan when sending my PUT request? (It's not a matter of ms oder seconds, therefore it's just annoying)

UPDATE: As StreamWork is still virus scanning my file (for around 15 hours now), there is maybe something wrong there. Btw it is possible to actually download the data manually from the Web, so the data arrived.

Thanks for any help,
