When upload files directly from box to S3, it is automatically downloading the files to local system also
I wanted to upload around 40GB of data from Box to S3. For this I am using our CLI and in that I have given source path as folder present in box. But during this upload process, it is downloading something to my laptop. Is there any option/configure in box to stop the process of automatically downloading files to my laptop. It should only upload the files from box to S3
For this to work the AWS S3 must accept an upload from an URL.
A quick google search yielded inconsistent results, so please research how to upload to an aws S3 bucket using an URL.
From the box api perspective you need to get the download URL of a file, and we can help you with that if you need.
However there is a security issue here.
The aws S3 wont authenticate against the box app, so you would need to have public shared files, which most likely you don't want.
There are a few more options:
- use a 3rd party tool
- continue using your laptop but modify your script to delete each local file after the upload
