Question error: Got 400 calling POST, expected 2xx.

I am trying to set up a Zap so that when I add a new track in Spotify, the track is added to my account but I receive an error each time. The account is fully subscribed.

I get the following error:

Got 400 calling POST, expected 2xx.

Any ideas?

Hey there @Ibiza Sonica, welcome to the Community! 👋

That’s odd, are the audio files from quite large?  

You mentioned that the tracks are being added to Spotify, despite that 400 error. So I’m wondering if the issue is that it’s taking longer than expected to upload the file, due to its size. Meaning we get back that 400 response as it’s not been able to complete the upload in that time. Do you think that could be the case here?

Are you able to test this theory out by uploading a smaller file to see if that gets added by the Zap without running into any errors? Looking forward to hearing from you!

Hey Sam!! :)) nice to meet you

Many thanks for your answer,I did what you told me with a smaller file, and the zap  gave me this error

The app returned "cURL error 6: Could not resolve host: True (see".

Do you know why this can happen? I don't know if I'm doing something wrong


Many thanks for your help

Hi @Ibiza Sonica!

Can I double-check that I understand what you’re trying to do? Is your Zap set up as:

  1. Trigger: Spotify - New Track Added to Playlist
  2. Action: - Upload a Track When a New File Is Added

I can see that the action needs the url of a track to upload it. I’m not familiar, do you know if you can add tracks using Spotify urls (ie if you do it manually)? Or does it need to be a link to a file (eg the url of a file in Google Drive/Dropbox)?

I took a look at the help docs about adding media and it mentioned using an FTP server, but I’m not sure if that’s applicable here. 

I hope that helps to get you pointed in the right direction, let us know if you have any questions!
