Upload SSL certs via axapi v3.0

I have tried using the file/ssl-cert AXAPI 3.0 endpoint to upload an SSL cert, and have so far been unable to with either curl or Ansible.

curl -k -X POST -v \
  https://a10.example./axapi/v3/file/ssl-cert \
  -H "Authorization: A10 ${SIG}" \
  -H 'content-type: application/json' \
  -d '{
"ssl-cert": {
  "file": "example.com.crt",
  "file-handle": "example.com.crt",
  "action": "import"

The response:

"response": {
  "status": "fail",
  "err": {
  "code": 1023590403,
  "from": "JSON",
  "msg": "Failed to handle field \"file-handle\". Incorrect file value.",
  "location": "ssl-cert.file-handle"

I see how this would fail, how could curl possibly know to upload this file handle, more so how would the API know to pull that file sitting on my local machine?

Is it not possible to upload an SSL cert via AXAPI? I see remote-file is an option but this does not work for us in our environment.
