Problems with the Snaplogic "Import a Project" API

I exported a project as a zip file and saved it locally, but I’m having trouble getting the Snaplogic Import a Project API to work.

I’ve tried to get this API to work on Postman and as a Python script, but I keep getting a 400 - BAD REQUEST response and the error “Expecting body argument for endpoint import_project: file_handle”.

So I assume something is wrong with how I’m trying to send the file, but I can’t figure out what. Here is an example of a Python script I’ve tried:

import requests
from requests.auth import HTTPBasicAuth
import os

pod_path = ''
import_path = 'Partners/Company/x_Imported'

url = f'https://{pod_path}/api/1/rest/public/project/import/{import_path}'

params = {'duplicate_check': 'true'}

headers = {'Content-Type': 'multipart/form-data'}

dirname = os.path.dirname(__file__)
filename = os.path.join(dirname, 'project_files/')

file_obj = open(filename, "rb")

files = {'file': ('', file_obj, 'application/zip')}

r =,
                      <username>, <password>),

Any ideas about what’s wrong with this script?

In case anyone else runs into this same issue. I got it to work by leaving out the 'Content-Type': 'multipart/form-data' header.
