Downloading multiple files uploaded by a client

How do I download multiple files, a client just sent a bunch and I don’t want to download all of them manually

There are two ways.

  1. You can connect Uploadcare to your S3 bucket, set an S3 backup and download the files from your backup.

  2. Use REST API to automatically list and download the files one-by-one. Here is an example:

    export HEADER="Authorization: Uploadcare.Simple PRIVATEKEY:PUBLICKEY"
    curl -H "$HEADER" '' \\
        |python -c 'import json,sys; x=json.loads(; print "\\n".join(\[i\["original\_file\_url"\] for i in x\["results"\]\]);' \\
        | xargs -n 1 curl -O

If you are familiar with Bash and Python, it should be clear (use your private & public key from Uploadcare project).

It will download all the files (one-by-one) from your Uploadcare storage to a local folder.
