    Default How to Upload a Image with POST to Amason S3 in Qt5/c++ ??

    Hello, I'm very new at qt, but I need to upload an image to a Amazon S3 server, but I keep getting this error:

    Qt Code:
    1. Failure "Error downloading - server replied: Forbidden"
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    I check all the credencialas and keys and they are working fine because I was able to upload the image with curl comands. The problem was when I tried to implemt the code on qt5.

    So this it's the code I'm ussing:

    Qt Code:
    1. QEventLoop eventLoop;
    2. QNetworkAccessManager mgr;
    3. QObject::connect(&mgr, SIGNAL(finished(QNetworkReply*)), &eventLoop, SLOT(quit()));
    5. QHttpMultiPart *multiPart = new QHttpMultiPart(QHttpMultiPart::FormDataType);
    7. QHttpPart textPart;
    8. textPart.setHeader(QNetworkRequest::ContentDispositionHeader, QVariant("form-data; name=\"key\""));
    9. textPart.setBody("c_test/Pantallazo-10.jpg");
    11. QHttpPart textPart1;
    12. textPart1.setHeader(QNetworkRequest::ContentDispositionHeader, QVariant("form-data; name=\"AWSAccessKeyId\""));
    13. textPart1.setBody("myAccessKeyId");
    15. QHttpPart textPart2;
    16. textPart2.setHeader(QNetworkRequest::ContentDispositionHeader, QVariant("form-data; name=\"Policy\""));
    17. textPart2.setBody("myPolicy");
    19. QHttpPart textPart3;
    20. textPart3.setHeader(QNetworkRequest::ContentDispositionHeader, QVariant("form-data; name=\"Signature\""));
    21. textPart3.setBody("mySignature");
    23. QHttpPart imagePart;
    24. imagePart.setHeader(QNetworkRequest::ContentTypeHeader, QVariant("image/jpeg"));
    25. imagePart.setHeader(QNetworkRequest::ContentDispositionHeader, QVariant("form-data; name=\"file\""));
    26. QFile *file = new QFile(QDir::homePath() + "Pantallazo-10.jpg");
    27. file->open(QIODevice::ReadOnly);
    28. imagePart.setBodyDevice(file);
    29. file->setParent(multiPart); // we cannot delete the file now, so delete it with the multiPart
    31. multiPart->append(textPart);
    32. multiPart->append(textPart1);
    33. multiPart->append(textPart2);
    34. multiPart->append(textPart3);
    35. multiPart->append(imagePart);
    37. QUrl url = QUrl(QString(""));
    39. QNetworkRequest request(url);
    40. QNetworkReply *reply =, multiPart); // POST
    41. eventLoop.exec(); // blocks stack until "finished()" has been called
    43. if (reply->error() == QNetworkReply::NoError) {
    44. qDebug() << "Success";
    45. } else {
    46. //failure
    47. qDebug() << "Failure" <<reply->errorString();
    48. multiPart->setParent(reply);
    49. delete reply;
    50. }
    To copy to clipboard, switch view to plain text mode 

    I really don't know what to do next, I'm pretty stuck on this one.

    Just as a precaution, check that the file was opened successfully.
    Your code assumes that homePath() ends in a directory separator character, I am not sure this is always the case.

    Also maybe connect to the authenticationRequired() signal and check if the slot is being invoked.
