Hi,

I tried to upload a photo to specific folder and it works fine but when trying to access the photo with the public id that has a folder name included as photo public id I get error. I tried that in postman so it considers the string (photo_public_id) is equal to ("myfolder/hjgshdgjdg) it will conside that as a path not as a public id. Is there a way to deal with that?

    Hi @rwahdan

    Upon uploading a new asset, the response includes the complete URL. As you rightly pointed out, the folder is integral to the public ID.

    Could you provide an example? If you prefer not to share it publicly here, feel free to initiate a new private ticket for further assistance.

    Best,

    Tamara

    [HttpPost("set-primary-photo/{propId}/{photoPublicId}")]

            [Authorize]

            public async Task<IActionResult> SetPrimaryPhoto(int propId, string photoPublicId)

            {

                var userId = GetUserId();

                var property = await uow.PropertyRepository.GetPropertyByIdAsync(propId);

               

                if (property == null)

                    return BadRequest("No such property or photo exists");


                if (property.PostedBy != userId)

                    return BadRequest("You are not authorized to change the primary photo!");


                var photo = property.Photos.FirstOrDefault(p => p.PublicId == photoPublicId);


                if (photo == null)

                    return BadRequest("No such property or photo exists");


                if (photo.IsPrimary)

                    return BadRequest("photo is already a primary photo!");


                var currentPrimary = property.Photos.FirstOrDefault(p => p.IsPrimary);


                if (currentPrimary != null) currentPrimary.IsPrimary = false;


                photo.IsPrimary = true;


                if (await uow.SaveAsync()) return NoContent();


                return BadRequest("Some error has occured, failed to set the primary photo!");

            }


    when I run this to postman with the following code:

    I get error can't access page.

    Hi @rwahdan, can you please try encoding the folder \ with %2F? and this might be causing the problem.

    If not - please share your postman collection or share how it specifically relates to a Cloudinary method.

    Thanks

    Hi @rwahdan, I don't see how is this a Cloudinary issue and I need more information to help. Can you please describe your workflow in more detail?
