Is it possible to set client_modified when uplading files using /upload_session?

Is it possible to set client_modified when uplading files using /upload_session?

New member | Level 2

Hello,

 

I am currently attempting to add a feature to our software that sets the client_modified date on every file we upload. This is easily done when uploading files through the /upload route. However, this route does not allow files larger than 150 MB. For those large files, I'm using the /upload_session endpoints, but these endpoints don't seem to support setting client_modified. Modifying client_modified also doesn't seem to be possible outside of uploading.

 

Is there any way to set client_modified on files larger than 150 MB? Thanks!

Yes, when using upload sessions, you can set the 'client_modified' when you commit the file via /2/files/upload_session/finish using the 'commit.client_modified' parameter. (Likewise, if you're using /2/files/upload_session/finish_batch, it's the corresponding 'entries.commit.client_modified'.) You can click on the types, e.g., `CommitInfo`, in the documentation to expand them for more information.

Thank you, Greg. That did work for me. I was trying to put the client_modified at the top level of the parameters to /upload_session/finish, as we do with /upload, rather in commit.
