How to securely supply files for post/fax

Updated 1 week ago

Our send letters and send fax endpoints accept a public URL to a PDF file.

If you prefer to not supply a public URL, there's another option: You can pass a file object to our 'uploads' endpoint first, which returns a URL that can be used with any of our send endpoints. The uploads endpoint returns a URL which is public by default, but can be changed to private here: https://dashboard.clicksend.com/#/account/settings/security. If you set it to Private, only we will be able to access that URL. It will also be destroyed within 10 mins.


To clarify:

  1. Update this setting to Private: https://dashboard.clicksend.com/#/account/settings/security
  2. POST your file to /uploads https://developers.clicksend.com/docs/rest/v3/#upload-media-file
  3. Passed the returned URL from the API response above to the send letters or send fax endpoints.
