I am a newbie on Bubble but really happy to discover this great tool. (Discovered through BFM Business!)
Is it possible to upload pictures through CSV? I tried from local and from our server but every time pictures are not uploaded.
Thank you for you help
You can, but you have to provide a URL, so the image has to be on a server somewhere. We don’t support bulk uploads of images yet (but are working on exposing an API that’ll let you do this).
Thank you Emmanuel for your answer.
I provided an URL from our server for each picture but they are not displaying. If I go to “modify an existing database entry”, and click on “see” next to the image, we access the image on our server. Once we try to call the data entry on a page, the pictures are not displaying.
Can you email us at [email protected] for this situation, can’t say anything without seeing the data.
I was wondering if there has been any progress on the bulk upload of images mentioned above?
The API workflows exposed recently would allow this to happen I would think. So you could ping an endpoint with images and upload them within the workflow.
Yes, especially using this https://bubble.io/reference#Data.Messages.image.saved_s3, which lets you take an image stored somewhere else and save it to Bubble’s storage.
So in the context of uploading Images through a CSV, how does one do this after uploading images to an external provider?
You’d have to use an API workflow and write a script to do this. Uploading a CSV won’t let you do this operation on the images.
So in essence, the only way I can upload a list of images as a field is to create a page and use multi-uploader?
By “list of images” do you mean … a list of URLs that point to images externally ?
Or like your “camera roll” … so a load of actual images.
Preferably the former for faster uploading (I have alot of images)
But the latter would be fine too
Anything but uploading each image one by one …
If you had a list you could maybe upload the URLs as text and then use the Bulk API function to copy to S3 ?
How do you use the Bulk API plugin? I can’t find it.
Hello, I want to use pictures in my app and store them in a database.
Here i read that i have to upload a list of picture ULR as a csv file,
which i understand and which i can do.
Then i have to use bulk action to copy them to S3.
Is there a function that will change the field type to picture and then put the s3 ULR in that field automatically?
Would somebody please help me by describing how i can do this in detail.
Thank you for your suppport !! regards from germany. Marc
I’m trying to let the user upload a CSV file containing among other things, a list of images.
I’m getting the following error:
The format of the file is exactly the format I exported through the database (minus the automatic columns).
I read here about API workflow, but I don’t understand how to iterate over the lines of the file rows.
