Here's how I encountered an issue and found a solution.
During my attempts to upload photos to Postman for API testing, I encountered a frustrating error that left me searching for a quick solution. While I stumbled upon a helpful video by an Indian developer on YouTube, the language barrier prompted me to share the solution here, here is his video if you want to see it.
So, if you're facing the same error and already have Postman installed, let's dive right into the solution without covering the installation and basic usage.
The Steps I Tried
When I tried to upload a file and test my API, an error message greeted me: "Couldn't upload file Make sure that Postman can read files inside the working directory." Naturally, I turned to Google for answers on how to grant Postman access to files within the working directory.
First, I accessed the settings located in the top right corner of the Postman interface.
Next, I scrolled down and enabled the option labeled "Read files outside working directory." This step might have solved the issue for some, but unfortunately, I was still facing the same problem.
The Final Solution
Access the settings located in the top right corner.
Scroll down and enable the option 'Read files outside working directory.' This step might solve the issue for some without further operations, but unfortunately, I was still facing the same problem.
Navigate to your local disk C.
Look for the "Users" folder.
Locate your specific "user" folder.
Find the "Posman Agent" folder and rename it to "Postman."
With this simple renaming trick, I successfully resolved the issue, and now I can effortlessly upload files in Postman without any hindrance.
So, if you're experiencing the same error, give this solution a try, and you'll be back on track with your API testing in no time. Happy coding!
