Upload to different location

Hi there Bubblers! I’d like to upload a file, but not to my bubble files location (which works super well for the standard uploading case). Instead, I will send it to my backend app that will then process the file and send back some json to display in my Bubble app. Is there an easy way to sort of intercept my upload action to do something different? Or maybe there is another approach? Thanks for any ideas or tips!

Hi @linfu

Using the standard file uploader, you can add an event that triggers when its value changes. Within that event you can trigger an api connector call that uploads that file to your external service. Then, delete the file from bubble to keep things clean.
