We are happy to import from whatever storage solution suits you best.
The /s3/import Robot imports whole directories of files from your S3 bucket.
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 S3 bucket, key, secret and bucket region.
While we recommend to use Template Credentials at all times, some use cases demand dynamic credentials for which using
Template Credentials with their static nature is too unwieldy. If you have this requirement, feel free to use the following
parameters instead: "bucket", "bucket_region" (for example: "us-east-1" or "eu-west-2"), "key", "secret".
(required) String / Array of Strings
If it points to a directory, then all files from this directory will be imported. For example: js/ For Transloadit to recognize you want to import all files from a directory, make sure your path ends with a / slash. Directories are not imported recursively. If you want to import files from subfolders and sub-subfolders, please do this with another Robot Step.
If you want to import all files from the root directory, please use / as the value here. In this case, make sure all your objects belong to a path. If you have objects in the root of your bucket that aren't prefixed with /, you'll receive an error: A client error (NoSuchKey) occurred when calling the GetObject operation: The specified key does not exist.
You can also use an array of path strings here to import multiple paths in the same Robot Step.
There might be an error coming up when trying to extract meta data from your imported files. This happens for files that are zero bytes big for example. Setting this to true will cause the Robot to not stop the import (and the entire Assembly) when that happens.
Our /s3/import Robot can be used in combination
with other Robots, to create powerful workflows unique to your use case.
Here are a few example scenarios, and the required Assembly Instructions to implement them.
You can also try demos of these examples right here, live on our website.
