Our /dropbox/store Robot

Export files to Dropbox

🤖/dropbox/store exports encoding results to Dropbox.

Usage example

Export uploaded files to my_target_folder on Dropbox:

{
  "steps": {
    "exported": {
      "robot": "/dropbox/store",
      "use": ":original",
      "credentials": "YOUR_DROPBOX_CREDENTIALS",
      "path": "my_target_folder/${unique_prefix}/${file.url_name}"
    }
  }
}

Parameters

  • use

    String / Array of Strings / Object required

    Specifies which Step(s) to use as input.

    • You can pick any names for Steps except ":original" (reserved for user uploads handled by Transloadit)

    • You can provide several Steps as input with arrays:

      "use": [
        ":original",
        "encoded",
        "resized"
      ]
      

    💡 That’s likely all you need to know about use, but you can view Advanced use cases.

  • credentials

    Stringrequired

    Please create your associated Template Credentials in your Transloadit account and use the name of your Template Credentials as this parameter's value. They will contain the values for your access token. You can create your Dropbox Access Token here.

    While we recommend to use Template Credentials at all times, some use cases demand dynamic credentials for which using Template Credentials is too unwieldy because of their static nature. If you have this requirement, feel free to use the "access_token" parameter instead.

  • path

    String ⋅ default: "${unique_prefix}/${file.url_name}"

    The path at which the file is to be stored. This may include any available Assembly variables.

  • Boolean ⋅ default: false

    Whether to create a URL to this file for sharing with other people. This will overwrite the file's "url" property.

Note: The URLs in the result JSON already point to the file on your target storage platform, so you can just save that URL in your database.
