OS and version

macOS 10.13.2



I use cURL --head (-I) option to check that the file exists and to get it's size. For binary files it returns error 507 (Value in field failed calculation test of validation entry option). If I change the target to a container field, it writes there the binary file with the only requested header in it.


How to replicate

Perform the following script step:


Insert from URL [ $$HEAD; ""; cURL options: "-I" ]



Use the option --dump-header (-D) along with --head (-I):


Insert from URL [ $$HEAD; ""; cURL options: "-I -D $$HEAD" ]
