Image upload error

Hello,

I’m using the Content Management JS SDK, version 5.21.1

Trying to create a new image asset but getting an error. I’ve attempted uploading the image first and calling createAsset:

const space = await this.client.getSpace(process.env.CONTENTFUL_SPACE_ID);
const environment = await space.getEnvironment(this.environment);
const upload = await environment.createUpload({ file: bytes });
const asset = await environment.createAsset({
  fields: {
    title: {
      [this.locale]: title
    },
    description: {
      [this.locale]: description
    },
    file: {
      [this.locale]: {
        fileName: fileName,
        contentType: contentType,
        uploadFrom: {
          sys: {
            type: 'Link',
            linkType: 'Upload',
            id: upload.sys.id
          }
        }
      }
    }
  }
});

I’ve also tried using createAssetFromFiles directly:

const space = await this.client.getSpace(process.env.CONTENTFUL_SPACE_ID);
const environment = await space.getEnvironment(this.environment);
const asset = await environment.createAssetFromFiles({
  fields: {
    title: {
      [this.locale]: title
    },
    description: {
      [this.locale]: description
    },
    file: {
      [this.locale]: {
        fileName: fileName,
        contentType: contentType,
        file: bytes
      }
    }
  }
});

Here’s the error I get (same for both calls):

      }
    ]
  },

    "method": "put",
    "payloadData": null
  },
  "requestId": "07778ff81872ddb45d5e1a7266436e22"
}

From reading your docs, I was under the impression the URL gets automatically created after the asset is created so I’m not sure what this error means.

Any help is greatly appreciated!
