I just wanted to clarify something about uploaded files.
It says here: Transloadit will save your files only temporarily. These temporary file URLs expire after 24 hours , making them inaccessible. https://transloadit.com/docs/#17-saving-conversion-results
When I use an assembly to upload to transloadit then process and store on S3 I get a series of different URL’s returned. When I look at the assembly results there are three buttons: Details, Open, and Download.
Details opens a modal dialog that gives me three URL’s: the tus_upload_url + two S3 Urls - an http one and a https one.
The Open button has a link to one of the S3 direct file urls.
But the download button has a link to https://transloadit.com/download/the_url:aHR0c[…more long string of characters]
Is that download link redirecting to one of the S3 links or somewhere else?
Can you confirm that after 24 hours no files exist on Tus or Transloadit if I have used an assembly to process and upload to S3? So the only files existing from the whole process are on S3?
I assume the 24 hours time window is to allow retries to upload to S3 (or elsewhere) in the event of network issues?
