Content Type header check in policy fragment in Azure API Management

I am trying to verify the content-type in the header of a request that downloads a file from an endpoint through the APIM.

The content-type is "multipart/form-data; boundary=<calculated when request is sent>" when checked in postman.

The policy fragment used to check the header is:

<check-header name="Content-Type" failed-check-httpcode="415" failed-check-error-message="Unsupported Media Type" ignore-case="true"> <value>application/json</value> <value>multipart/form-data</value> </check-header>

However this validation fails for file download request, but works fine for regular JSON requests.

What is the ideal policy code to check for this particular content type?
