Talk:Web services files handling
Proposal for sending file from the client to Moodle
1- The client calls webservice/pluginfile.php
The client sends the FILES by HTTP calling webservice/upload.php with the web service token.
The upload script stores the files in a draft area. If the itemid in the request is missing or is 0, a new draft area will be created. It send back the draft area id to the client in JSON format.
2- The client calls the web service function. It sends as many draft area ids as it is requested by the web service function.
Texts sent by the client should contain @@pluginfile....@@ strings to reference the files.
Note: in Moodle web service structure, we need to add a new param for draft id when dealing with textarea/description/introeditor.
Note: core_user_add_user_private_files will copy files from a draft area to a users private files area and (applying any file restrictions).
