Instead of sending Assembly Instructions directly to Transloadit, you can also save them in
a secured way as a Template. You can then refer to the
template_id in your
requests, making sure that secrets and Instructions no longer have to be transmitted, which is
a security risk in many cases.
Here is the 'raw' Template, in case you would like to save these Instructions safely in your account, or use these Instructions to talk directly to our REST API without using any SDK.
