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

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. -- Benjamin Curtis http://railskits.com/ - Ready-made Rails code http://catchthebest.com/ - Team-powered recruiting http://www.bencurtis.com/ - Personal blog On Thu, May 14, 2009 at 1:25 AM, Chris B.
