When I attempt to upload an attachment to Freshdesk with chunked Transfer-Encoding, the request fails. It appears that you are running an outdated version of the nginx proxy that does not support chunked Transfer-Encoding (


curl -u --header "Transfer-Encoding: chunked" -F "helpdesk_note[attachments][][resource]=@/path/to/file.jpg" -F "helpdesk_note[body]=Note content" -F "helpdesk_note[private]=false" -X POST[id]/conversations/note.json
