[CAP] Posting form data to a destination using executeHttpRequest

        const { executeHttpRequest } = require('@sap-cloud-sdk/http-client')
        const FormData = require('form-data')

        try {
            //Create payload
            const form = new FormData()
            form.append('file', fileContent, {
                contentType: 'application/pdf'
                filename: 'test.pdf'

            //Create headers
            const headers = {
                'Content-Length': form.getLengthSync(),

            //Send to Destination
            const response = await executeHttpRequest(
                { destinationName: 'TESTINATION' },
                    method: 'POST',
                    url: 'myApiPath',
                    headers: headers,
                    data: form,
                    responseType: 'arraybuffer' // if you need the response data as buffer to prevent UTF-8 encoding
        } catch (error) {

[CAP] Providing destinations locally using .env


The provided example

destinations="[{\"name\": \"TESTINATION\", \"url\": \"http://url.hana.ondemand.com\", \"username\": \"DUMMY_USER\", \"password\": \"EXAMPLE_PASSWORD\"}]"

didn’t work for me. I had to change it to the following format:

destinations=[{"name": "TESTINATION", "url": "http://url.hana.ondemand.com", "username": "DUMMY_USER", "password": "EXAMPLE_PASSWORD"}]

You can check the current value using:
