Postman multipart/form-data error: Missing start boundary

I'm trying to hit my server's endpoint with a

multipart/form-data
request sent from Postman. I'm getting a 400 Bad Request and the cause is:

org.jvnet.mimepull.MIMEParsingException: Missing start boundary.


How can I set the start boundary and how do I know what it should be?

Answer

https://github.com/postmanlabs/postman-app-support/issues/191 Following that thread here seems that setting the request header to Content-Type multipart/form-data I'm overriding the value set by Postman.

There is no need to add a content-type header manually. You are overriding the value set by Postman. Just select form-data in POST request and send your request to see if it works.

Removing the header allowed me to hit my endpoint.
