      Hey everyone,


      I am new to Powershell, I am trying to POST a file/data unto a REST API, I created the following code, this works in powershell 6 but doesn't work in powersehll 5. I am trying to find something to run with powershell 5, need help. Appreciate responses, thanks in advance

      $user = ''
      $pass = ''
      $pair = "$($user):$($pass)"
      $encodedCreds = [System.Convert]::ToBase64String([System.Text.Encoding]::ASCII.GetBytes($pair))
      $basicAuthValue = "Basic $pair"
      $secpasswd = ConvertTo-SecureString $pass -AsPlainText -Force
      $credential = New-Object System.Management.Automation.PSCredential($user, $secpasswd)
      $Headers = @{
      Authorization = $basicAuthValue
      ContentType = 'application/json'
      $picPath = "C:\Users\ABC\Documents\FILE.json"
      $uri = "rest_api"
      $form = @{
      image1 = Get-Item -Path 'C:\Users\ABC\Documents\FILE.json'
      $Result=Invoke-RestMethod -Uri $uri -Method Post -ContentType "multipart/form-data" -FORM $form -Headers @{"Authorization"="Basic $encodedCreds"} -Outfile 'C:\Users\ABC\Documents\response.json'
      Write-Output $Result.result
