Copying Object Storage (Big) Files to Final Destination via PreAuthenticatedRequests

Once someone puts files in an object storage as an intermediary repository to interchange data, afterthat you have to move or copy those files to the final destination. There are several mechanisms to copy those files such as API’s or the Command Line Interface (CLI), but one very easy to use is by creating pre-authenticated-requests which are temporary url’s that exist for an specific period of time that you can control easily. Let’s see how it works.

Upload files to a bucket and select Create Pre-Authenticated-Request

Give it a name and select expiration date

Copy the url

wget the url

Cool! Remember you have total control of Pre-Authenticated-Requests just in case you want to delete one or several before automatic expiration.

That’s all, hope it helps! 🙂
