    Hi @omar21

    That's atypical use for an API endpoint, even a custom code endpoint.
    You can only send POST requests in JSON. So you would have to base64 encode or a similar CSV file to send to the API and then convert it back to CSV to send to another system.

    Using a DSS flow would be more adequate if you want to send files. You can use the Python API to upload file to a folder and then process those files and send to another system via a scenario.
    Another option is to use a custom webapp:

    Get a network file share and move the CSV files, it will be mich faster than any sort of API. Or use a Cloud bucket if you are on Cloud. The requirement doesn't really makes sense. People don't build APIs to send CSV files. What are you trying to achieve?
