Writing big JSON xml object to httpRequest.EntityBody in POST method not working

Hi Community,

I have json equivalent persistent object in pjsonObj variable. Final JSON example below.

{
     "Document": {
                    "FileExtension": "pdf",
                    "FileContent": "JVBERi0xLjUNCiW1tbW1DQo...(very large bsae64 string)"
                }
}

Here FileContent field in json will contain converted base64 string of very large pdf(10pages). I need to submit this json as a payload to REST endpoint.

below code is working fine. 

set tSC=##class(%ZEN.Auxiliary.jsonProvider).%WriteJSONStreamFromObject(.newobj,pjsonObj,,,1,"aelqtw")
$$$LOGINFO("json"_newobj.Read())

Set httpRequest= ##class(%Net.HttpRequest).%New()
Set httpRequest.Server = ..Adapter.HTTPServer
Set httpRequest.Location = ..Adapter.URL
Set httpRequest.SSLConfiguration = ..Adapter.SSLConfig
Set httpRequest.SSLCheckServerIdentity = 0
Set httpRequest.Https = $$$YES
Set httpRequest.ContentType = "application/json"
Set httpRequest.Authorization = "Bearer "_pToken
set tSC=##class(%ZEN.Auxiliary.jsonProvider).%WriteJSONStreamFromObject(httpRequest.EntityBody,pjsonObj,,,1,"aelqtw")
Set sc = httpRequest.Post("", 2)

Here I have 2 questions.

1) Is my custom code is correct for rest post call for my big json stream requirement? but I have tested working fine my few tests.

2) What is the importance of first 2 lines from this code? if I commented that 2 lines , whole stream is not converting as payload as a result full json is not attached to request. but REST call is successful. getting error response from target system.

As per my knowledge , commented lines should not effect the stream conversion of httpRequest.EntityBody.

//set tSC=##class(%ZEN.Auxiliary.jsonProvider).%WriteJSONStreamFromObject(.newobj,pjsonObj,,,1,"aelqtw")
//$$$LOGINFO("json"_newobj.Read())

Set httpRequest= ##class(%Net.HttpRequest).%New()
Set httpRequest.Server = ..Adapter.HTTPServer
Set httpRequest.Location = ..Adapter.URL
Set httpRequest.SSLConfiguration = ..Adapter.SSLConfig
Set httpRequest.SSLCheckServerIdentity = 0
Set httpRequest.Https = $$$YES
Set httpRequest.ContentType = "application/json"
Set httpRequest.Authorization = "Bearer "_pToken
set tSC=##class(%ZEN.Auxiliary.jsonProvider).%WriteJSONStreamFromObject(httpRequest.EntityBody,pjsonObj,,,1,"aelqtw")
Set sc = httpRequest.Post("", 2)

Please suggest any best way to code for the same requirement? We need to go live on next week,Could you tell me what changes required in this?

 

Thanks in Advance,
