The document is reachable by cURL and the browser, but it is throwing the above error when using the REST API v3. 

 

JSON

{

    "type": "document",

    "subject": "document",

    "visibility": "place",

    "parent": "http://url.com/api/core/v3/places/PLACE_ID",

    "content":

        { "type": "text/html",

          "text": "<body><p>This document.</p></body>"

        },

     "attachments":[{

      "doUpload": true,

       "url" : "http://url.com/themes/file.jpg"

      }]

  }

 

Given response:

 

{

  "error" : {

  "message" : "There was an error fetching file http://url.com/themes/file.jpg. HTTP error code: 403",

  "status" : 400

  }

}

 

The file resides on the same server as the Jive instance. Is there anything missing on the request?

 

 

Thanks
