Bounty: 50

Here is the code which is working using Net::HTTP::Post

request = Net::HTTP::Post.new(url)
...
form_data = [
  ['attachments[]', File.open('file1.txt')],
  ['attachments[]', File.open('file2.txt')]
]
request.set_form form_data, 'multipart/form-data'
http.request(request)

Now, I am trying to use httparty like below but it is not working.

body = { attachments: [ File.open('file1.txt'), File.open('file2.txt') ] }

HTTParty.post(url, body: body)

The response I am getting from web service call is below:

#<HTTParty::Response:0x557d7b549f90 parsed_response={"error"=>true, "error_code"=>"invalid_attachment", "error_message"=>"Attachmen
t(s) not found or invalid."}, @response=#<Net::HTTPBadRequest 400 Bad Request readbody=true>, @headers={"server"=>["nginx"], "date"=>[
"Mon, 20 May 2019 07:41:50 GMT"], "content-type"=>["application/json"], "content-length"=>["102"], "connection"=>["close"], "vary"=>["
Authorization"], "set-cookie"=>["c18664e1c22ce71c0c91742fbeaaa863=uv425hihrbdatsql1udrlbs9as; path=/"], "expires"=>["Thu, 19 Nov 1981

-cache"], "x-ratelimit-limit"=>["60"], "x-ratelimit-remaining"=>["59"], "strict-transport-security"=>["max-age=63072000; includeSubdom
ains;"]}>

It looks like it is not able to read the contents of files. Does HTTParty supports this or I need to use some other gem?
