I´ve a situation where I´ve to upload files to our users, the thing is that I´ve found that when you upload a file to the Bubble´s servers you get a URL and everybody that has that URL can access to the file itself.
How can I secure this so that people outside the app cannot access that files?
Also, will be a way to upload files directly to a google drive folder?
Thanks a lot guys and good day.
So I´ve seen that whenever you upload a file there is a set file permissions. Now the question is, to see the file or to download the file you need a link that redirects to an external website.
I don´t really understand how this works, I´ve set a file to be private but even though if I´m not logged in I can see the URL and the file.
Can somebody help me with this please?
Here is the app editor: https://bubble.io/page?type=page&name=archivos&id=mynewtestapp&tab=tabs-1
Here is the live app: https://mynewtestapp.bubbleapps.io/version-test/archivos?debug_mode=true
Thanks a lot guys.
Wohooo!! You are so nice Bubble team.
Just figured it out.
Now there is one thing: Will it be possible to set an alert or to change the text when the file is not accessible?
Thanks a lot.
What did you find out? That information would be helpful for others wishing to do the same.
For a file to be private or secure it’s not enough to attach it to a thing. You also have to set the privacy permissions.
Oh, I´ve just found that there was information in the Bubble´s reference: https://bubble.io/reference#Elements.FileInput.private
Hope it helps.
Any thought about how to secure the file if the file is uploaded via an API Workflow? I set the privacy permissions, but there is still a public url link to the file. Help?
