File field 

Defines how a file field is represented as in Atom format.

To create an entry with one or more file attachments, use a multipart post method to post the file or files. The HTTP response represents the multipart post as an activity node of type entry that contains an <snx:field> element of type file. For example:


An <snx:field> element of type="file" contains an Atom <link> element that specifies the location of the file attachment as its child element.

Element How treated on input Description
<link> Required when updating, not creating. Specifies the URI from which the file attachment can be accessed. When you create a file field, send a post request and an attachment. When you update an existing file attachment, specify the URI of the file using the link element.

The <link> element is in the Atom namespace.
