Request body

In the request body, supply a resource with the following properties:

Property name Value Description Notes
Required Properties
photoData bytes The user photo's upload data in web-safe Base64 format in bytes. This means:
  • The slash (/) character is replaced with the underscore (_) character.
  • The plus sign (+) character is replaced with the hyphen (-) character.
  • The equals sign (=) character is replaced with the asterisk (*).
  • For padding, the period (.) character is used instead of the RFC-4648 baseURL definition which uses the equals sign (=) for padding. This is done to simplify URL-parsing.
  • Whatever the size of the photo being uploaded, the API downsizes it to 96x96 pixels.
Optional Properties
height integer Height of the photo in pixels. writable
mimeType string The MIME type of the photo. Allowed values are JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP, TIFF, and web-safe base64 encoding. writable
