Looking for S3 File Upload PlugIn


#1

Hi there,
I’m looking for a file upload plug in to load any kind of files up to an
Amazon S3 bucket. But the access to the files should be restricted to
authenticated users.

Any Suggestions?

Regards,

Chris

Chris, are you wanting to perform these actions as an admin user or a
client
of the
site?

Hi Conrad,

the users should be able to upload/download files, but download only
these they are authenticated to (like only files of group x).

afaik s3 buckets are either protected or public - so i’m not sure how to
do this.

You use paperclip to handle file uploads, sending to s3, and storing the
info in the database. The model that stores the image information
should
belong_to a User, so that you can implement per-user access controls.
Then
when a file is to be downloaded, assuming the currently logged-in user
can
access the file, you render a time-limited (5 minutes or so) s3 URL so
that
user can download it without leaving the file wide open on s3.
