When uploading with the Multi-File Uploader - Dropzone, if some files have already been uploaded, they get registered in the file manager but if the whole upload process is interrupted, the already uploaded files can not be tracked.
A “Do search for: file” is unfortunately not possible to find any orphan files that aren’t registered anywhere. This would potentially allow for a workflow to clean canceled multi-file uploads but, like I said it’s not possible do to do right now.
Allowing for a workflow action to occur after each file has been successfully uploaded would probably be the best solution.
Here is an example:
I interrupted the upload at about this point by closing browser tab:
After refreshing the file manager I these files were registered (in the time between the screenshot and until I closed the tab another file finished uploading):
I am unable to capture these already uploaded files, they will take up space and I won’t be able to track them or scan for them to automatically delete them.
In contrast, when the files do finish to upload, then using the “Multi file uploader value is changed” I can track the files and I can create records that allow the user to delete the uploaded files.
However, this isn’t possible if the the upload process is interrupted, which in turn creates untraceable files.
A possible solution would be to trigger a value change every time a file is successfully uploaded, rather than when they have all been uploaded.
Thank you for taking the time to looking into this and finding a suitable solution.
