The uploader component allows you to add the additional data on file upload which is used to get in the server end. By using uploading event and its customFormData argument, you can achieve this behavior.

In the following code snippet, explains about how to add additional data on file upload.

    <ejs-uploader ref="uploadObj" id='defaultfileupload' :uploading="onFileUpload" name="UploadFiles"  :autoUpload="autoUpload" :asyncSettings= "path"></ejs-uploader>
<script setup>

import { UploaderComponent, SelectedEventArgs } from '@syncfusion/ej2-vue-inputs';
import { createElement } from '@syncfusion/ej2-base';

export default {
  data: function(){
        return {
          path:  {
            saveUrl: '',
            removeUrl: ''
            autoUpload: false,
            allowedExtensions: 'image/*'
    methods: {
        onFileUpload:function(args) {
            // add addition data as key-value pair.
            args.customFormData = [{'name': 'Syncfusion INC'}];
