How to save user-uploaded files to storage
Application Type

I am developing web applications using Outsystems built in on-premises environment. I would like to create an action that saves files uploaded by users to on-premises another storage. Is there a better way?

Currently, we are implementing this by storing the target file as a BLOB in an external DB.

Hi Takahiko Namba,

The answer is Yes.

You will need to use this Forge called FileSystem.


Remember, If your on-premises infra has more than 1 front-end server, you need to specify which one will store the file. otherwise, it will save the file to the front-end server that processed the upload request.

for more detail, see the documentation tab, it will help you know how to use the Forge.
