Image uploading via native Filetransfer

Hi everyone,

I am using Node-Mongo Backend for uploading my Image. So that I tried to use native Filetransfer. Unfortunately it doesn’t work properly. I tested my backend with postmon. My backend is working perfectly. Even In Ionic I can fetch my Image from serve. But I can’t upload my image data to server. I couldn’t figure out where is the problem. Please guide me if anyone have time.

My provider is


import { Injectable } from '@angular/core';
import 'rxjs/add/operator/map';
import { Http } from '@angular/http';
import { FileTransfer, FileUploadOptions, FileTransferObject } from '@ionic-native/file-transfer';
export class ImagesProvider {
   apiURL = 'http://localhost:3000/';
  constructor(public http: Http, private transfer: FileTransfer) { }
  getImages() {
    return this.http.get(this.apiURL + 'images').map(res => res.json());
  deleteImage(img) {
    return this.http.delete(this.apiURL + 'images/' + img._id);
  uploadImage(img, desc) {
    // Destination URL
  var url = encodeURI(this.apiURL+'images');

    // File for Upload
    var targetPath = img;
    var options: FileUploadOptions = {
      fileKey: "file",
      fileName: "filename",
      chunkedMode: false,
      mimeType: 'multipart/form-data',
      params: { 'desc': desc },
      httpMethod: "POST",
    const fileTransfer: FileTransferObject = this.transfer.create();
    // Use the FileTransfer to upload the image
    return fileTransfer.upload( url,targetPath, options, true).then((res)=>{

I am pretty sure above upload method is not working perfectly.

Below is my takePicture function

 public takePicture(sourceType) {
    // Create options for the Camera Dialog
    var options = {
      quality: 100,
      sourceType: sourceType,
      saveToPhotoAlbum: false,
      correctOrientation: true
    // Get the data of an image => {
      let modal = this.modalCtrl.create('UploadModalPage', { data: imagePath });
      modal.onDidDismiss(data => {
        if (data && data.reload) {
    }, (err) => {
      console.log('Error: ', err);

I think above function would be not any major issue.
And the my saveImage method is

 saveImage() {
    this.imagesProvider.uploadImage(this.imageData, this.desc).then(res => {
      this.viewCtrl.dismiss({reload: true});
    }, err => {

And error of uploadImage method from provider

this is console log(err). Can anyone please tell me? Is there something that I missed? I am pondering that my uploadeImage filetransfer is not connecting via http request.

Thanks for your support
