Files API Overwrite not behaving

PNie

Using
/files/v3/files/import-from-url/async

to pull an external file into hubspot files. This appears to work. However when the overwrite option is set to true, it doesn't overwrite, just end up with a folder with 
test
test-1
test-2
test-3
test-4

Then for some reason, consistently after -4 it changes to test-datetime stamp
test-Dec-06-2021-02-39-17-81-AM


Just running the below (where XXX = api key, file url, folderid)

 

$curl = curl_init();

curl_setopt_array($curl, array(
  CURLOPT_URL => 'https://api.hubapi.com/files/v3/files/import-from-url/async?hapikey=XXX',
  CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER => true,
  CURLOPT_ENCODING => '',
  CURLOPT_MAXREDIRS => 10,
  CURLOPT_TIMEOUT => 0,
  CURLOPT_HTTP_VERSION => CURL_HTTP_VERSION_1_1,
  CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST => 'POST',
  CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS =>'{
    "access":"PUBLIC_NOT_INDEXABLE",
    "name":"test",
    "url":"XXX",
    "duplicateValidationStrategy":"NONE",
    "duplicateValidationScope":"EXACT_FOLDER",
    "overwrite":true,
    "folderId":"XXX"
}',
  CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER => array(
    'accept: application/json',
    'content-type: application/json'
  ),
));

$response = curl_exec($curl);

curl_close($curl);

 

 
Just wanting it to overwrite anyone able to replicate the issue or able to point me in the right direction.

Hi @PNie ,

 

I can reproduce it, and have the same behaviour.

It looks that the parameter overwrite is not accepted or ignored by the async API. 


I found the following information

 

 

Overwrite:
If true this file with replace any existing files with the name name, folder, and type.

Note: If this is set to false, and the uploaded file matches the filename of an existing file in the same folder, the file will be uploaded with a number incremented filename (e.g. example_file.txt will become example_file-1.txt)

 

 

https://legacydocs.hubspot.com/docs/methods/files/v3/upload_new_file

 

 

I tried is also with the synchronious endpoint, and that one is accepting the overwrite parameter and is updating the file with overwrite. (https://api.hubapi.com/filemanager/api/v3/files/upload?hapikey=xxx)

 

Maybe @dennisedson can tell us if this function isn't implemented in the async API?
