Need Help/Clarification w/ Send Files and Download Links

Post by pepsupport »

Couple of observations - please ack them as valid

The actual user that creates a web link/send file -etc - has no way to manage them after. ie, they can not edit it, stop it, see if it was downloaded or see who that they invited to upload/download has actually done so, nor can they can an email sent to them when a person has uploaded a file per the link in the email.

I tried to add an http event for onfileupload but it does not email the owner of the link, it fails.

Here I sent an upload request to a nonwing user via their email - then they uploaded a file. The send failed.

[06] Tue, 02 Apr 2024 11:05:56 (0000002) User 'doug@promotions.com' created Upload-Link for the folder 'DL UPload'
[06] Tue, 02 Apr 2024 11:06:24 (0000002) User 'doug@promotions.com' updated Upload-Link for the folder '/doug/DL UPload'
[05] Tue, 02 Apr 2024 11:07:23 (0000009) Client 166.199.4.146 started uploading file '4F510144C1F427873D3298D955C8E19F.initial-findings-report.pdf'
[05] Tue, 02 Apr 2024 11:07:27 (0000009) Client 166.199.4.146 uploaded the file '4F510144C1F427873D3298D955C8E19F.initial-findings-report.pdf'
[01] Tue, 02 Apr 2024 11:07:27 start sending mail to .
[12] Tue, 02 Apr 2024 11:07:27 Mail to failed, send header to server error: 454 4.5.1 Error: no valid recipients

What we need is for a user to be able to create a download link - add the emails to external (non wing users) clients and get an email when they have downloaded the files. It appears the email address of non-users is not being captured. What I would like to see is an email sent to the orig wing user that sent the upload request, informing them that the file was uploaded or for a weblink sent out - that the person actually downloaded it?

Can someone point me in the right direction?

There is no recipient defined, of course it will fail to send email notification. So please check out this post for a similar functionality: viewtopic.php?t=3613

Thanks, link is helpful.. need one clarification

if username == "<UPLOADLINK>" then

username is from the profile , what value is typically in <UPLOADLINK>?

I know it is supposed to be the path to the upload directory - correct, we are not seeing emails - I suspect the == is failing

OK, it means user uploads files via a file request link. And you do not need to replace anything in that Lua script.
