Upload Files to OData Service

By default, the Upload uploads files as FileData.

In order for the OData service to consume a file, the body of the sent request has to include the file buffer. To allow the Upload to utilize the FileReader of the browser and send a request that satisfies the OData specification for Media Entities, set the useArrayBuffer option to true.


The useArrayBuffer option enables you to use the Upload in SharePoint 2013 and utilize its native REST service for the file upload mechanism.

<input type="file" name="files" id="photos" />
        async: {
            saveUrl: "http://my-app.localhost/save",
            removeUrl: "http://my-app.localhost/remove",
            useArrayBuffer: true
