Spring Boot: Failed to parse multipart servlet request; nested exception is java.io.IOException
Here i am providing a quick resolution to the error thrown by container while uploading multipart content.
org.springframework.web.multipart.MultipartException: Failed to parse multipart servlet request; nested exception is java.io.IOException: The temporary upload location [/tmp/tomcat.3966508010119674561.8080/work/<wbr />Tomcat/localhost/api] is not valid
Spring will use
temp directory as a intermidiate location while doing multipart operation, container will create directory named
tomcat.* to store files temporaraly. As temp location will be used by mutple application OS will perform cleaning on unused objects that have not been used for some days (ideally 10 days).
- Restart your container so it will pick a new location automatically if old one has been deleted. (Not a good idea :))
- Configure your custom temp location to handle mulitpart request using application properties. Example:
spring.http.multipart.location=YOUR_TEMP_LOCATION_PATH(Choose appropriate property based on your boot version)
