    Unfortunately, it is not possible to get the file attachment in Post data. As you can see in my screenshot below, post data is not able to get the file I uploaded/attached to my form.

    Demo Form: https://form.jotform.com/90231260995962.

    I'm forwarding this as a feature request to our second level, although we cannot provide an ETA, we will keep you updated via this thread.

    Sorry for the quick reply above. It seems you can get the file attached on your form, please refer to this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/213-Send-Submission-Data-via-Post-Method-and-Thank-You-Settings.

    If you want to send the submission data directly to your server's database, instead of passing the data via the URL, you can use the POST method. However, you should be familiar with programming and PHP to execute this properly as you will be creating your own PHP endpoint that will receive the POST data.
