Hi, we have the following problem:
The service makes put transfer-encoding: chunked, and at some point breaks the connection. In this case, the file is not created. Therefore, I decided that if I add the missing zeros to the end with njs so that the request is correct, then nginx can create a file. But it turned out that even this does not work. As I understand it, nginx requires a tcp connection to where it sends that the file has been created, otherwise everything will disappear.

It is not clear to me what you are trying to do, but it is quite normal that a failed/incomplete PUT request does not create a destination file. The destination file is created only once it is correctly and fully uploaded. If the connection is broken in the middle of the request, no destination file will be created. In particular, this ensures that a corrupt/incomplete file won't be propagated further without any indication about it's being corrupted.
