Make some more of this! You can specify filename now in :saved to S3

Hi all,

I found this in the release notes of Bubble today. They updated the :saved to S3 operator so you can specify a filename now. Before that I had to create a new data type which contained a filename text to be that flexible.

I don’t know if I am the only one who is hyped about this :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

But it is going to make my work with documents/files a lot easier!


Hey, @klaas.vanhoeck1,

I don´t understand what this means.

So, when a user uploads a file (file uploader), the user can change the file name (file´s file name) without an extra Data Type?

How can I achieve this?

Thanks in advance :slightly_smiling_face: :computer:

hi @hacker,

Using the :saved to S3 operator will allow you to set the filename.
The image below is quite self explanatory in my opinion


The name can be set only when the file is uploaded/created?
Or can it be changed by “make changes to thing”.

The thing is that I have tried everything and nothing works

Its not actually that self explanatory. How do you use it to change a filename already uploaded?

Hi did you find a solution for this ? thanks !

Hello did you find something to achieve this ? thanks !

Hi All,

I’m struggling with this as well. My file is coming in via an API and trying to rename during the save to S3 but its just ignoring it.
Unfortunately the external App the file is coming from (Xero) is handing over the file with the GUID of the invoice and no file extension so its not very practical.

Has anyone had any luck getting this to work?
