Cubicl Docs


This document contains endpoints for
  1. 1.
    Uploading files to different parts of the app
  2. 2.
    Files feature in the projects

Uploading and Downloading

Files can be uploaded to tasks, task activities, chat messages, clients, and the files page. For all of these operations, first, you need to send a request to upload the file. After the upload completes, the server will return the id of the file. Then, you can use this id in other API endpoints.
Upload File

Files Page Endpoints

These endpoints allow you to view, create, edit and delete files and folders in the Files page of a project and a client.
Cubicl allows you to organize files and directories for both projects and also clients.
The structure of the Files page is similar to the file system in a computer or other file storage services such as Google Drive. It consists of nested file and directory nodes. At the top, a root directory node exists. Directories hold child file and directory nodes. File nodes are not same as the file record returned from Upload File endpoint. File node records point to file records.
