What difference between /file-upload/ and /ufs/FileSystem:Uploads/


Some of our file upload requests show up with different calls.

  1. GET / file-upload / tmuAzHQo9dKucjTST /
  2. GET / ufs / FileSystem: Uploads / 2o8SQEZfjBdwfEAA5 /

What is the difference between them?

We are using FileSystem.

Any additional Information

Have you changed the default file storage?

Hi @reetp
No, the default file store hasn’t changed.

I figured out why this is happening and it’s pretty weird.

When you click on the files at the top right to see the entire list of files and download something from there - /ufs * will be called

And if you try to download a file from the chat itself, then file-upload is called.

Odd indeed (you don’t need to @ people thanks)

I’ll get Debdut to have a look.
