Deny all read permissions for some folder with images


(Oleg Green) #1

Hello,
I’m trying to make images in “images” folder not available from outside for reading, for now I need only upload and store these images. Maybe in future I will give access for some defined user.

So I’ve denied READ permissions for “images” folder and it becomes not accessible via public URL.
The only way I can open it is by clicking on it in backendless console.
When I open it the url of image looks like:

{base_url}/console/{app_id}/appversion/9EEF7CA6-8909-4453-FF63-E38B4DB68900/fbktubpzljcswqgczgotynhcpmnlvaihbetw/files/view/images/image1.png

My questions are:

  1. Is the key that is bold in above link some auto generated key?
  2. Will it remains the same for all the time? So for example if I will share this link ones for someone he will be able to access all files in folder just by replacing file name in above link?

Thanks
Best Regards,
Oleg

Hello, Oleg!

Answering your questions:

  1. No, it’s not
  2. Yes, it would be the same and path replacement would work.
    Please consider that permissions’ scope is API only. When you open file from console - you don’t use API. In order to make permissions work use button “get shareable link”. In this case permissions restrictions would work.
