Drupal 8.9.11

Image File Uploaded via REST gets "status - Temporary" while setting explicitly "status" case to True server error 403 (code in python)

   "status": [
      {
        "value": True
      }
   ],

The sever returns code 403, an exception:

Status: 403, Message: {"message":"Access denied on creating field \u0027status\u0027."}

The error on the server: $ vendor/bin/drush watchdog-show

access denied Warning Path: /themag_dp8/entity/file?_format=hal_json.
   Symfony\Component\HttpKernel\Exception\AccessDeniedHttpException: Access denied on creating
   field 'status'. in Drupal\rest\Plugin\rest\resou

If I'll not specify "status = true" The next REST call to Create Media fails to reference it due to its temporary status.

   payload = {
        "name": {
            "value": name
        },
        "field_image": [
            {
                "target_id": file_id
            }
        ],
        "field_description": [
            {
                "value": description
            },
        ],
        "bundle": [
            {
                "target_id": "image"
            }
        ],
        "_links": {
            "type": {
                "href": oauth.base_url + REST_TYPE_MEDIA_IMAGE
            },
            oauth.base_url + "/rest/relation/media/image/thumbnail": [
                {
                    "href": oauth.base_url + "/file/%d" % file_id + FORMAT_HAL_JSON
                }
            ],
            oauth.base_url + "/rest/relation/media/image/field_image": [
                {
                    "href": oauth.base_url + "/file/%d" % file_id + FORMAT_HAL_JSON
                }
            ]
        }
    }

When I manually, via web site admin (https://drupal8.site/admin/content/files), change the file status to "Permanent", this Create Media REST call succeeds to create a new media/image entity.

Seems the Rest user missing some security allowances, but which one? Did anybody succeed to create a node consisting of the teaser image, paragraph video and so?

Sure I'm not the first who attack this issue, where the relevant documentation, working code examples?

The solution I found so far is to fix a Drupal module code:

modules\contrib\file_entity\src\Normalizer\FileEntityNormalizer.php on line 48 add:

$entity->setPermanent();

You can upload images and create media without the File Entity module and any module fixes.

Try this:

New "file_upload" REST resource plugin: allows file uploads of any size, creates File entities

In your case, the request would be like this:

POST /file/upload/media/image/field_media_image?_format=hal_json HTTP/1.1
Content-Type: application/octet-stream
Content-Disposition: file; filename="filename.jpg"

[… binary file data …]

And request to create media /entity/media?_format=hal_json:

{
    "_links": {
        "type": {
            "href": "YOUR_SITE/rest/type/media/image"
        }
    },
    "name": [
        {
            "value": "Image.jpg"
        }
    ],
    "field_media_image": [
        {
            "target_id": YOUR_ID
        }
    ]
}

It's works fine.
