To simulate the use of an S3 storage in your Business Processes, Intelligent Automation Cloud Business offers a local File Storage, which is installed and configured on your machine during the product setup.
For RPA Express 2.3.0 and later, File Storage is available only in case of the Development Workstation and Server (Free + Premium Features) installation type.
There is a preconfigured common bucket called Public, with Read/Write access, so you are able to upload/download files there.
In order to create a new bucket or use the existing one to upload files, you should use the local File Storage, which is installed with Intelligent Automation Cloud Business. To get access to File Storage, do as follows.
Select File Storage from the RPA Express tray menu.
Log in using your credentials.
The credentials for File Storage are defined during installation. See Intelligent Automation Cloud Express/Business Installation for more details.
Upon login, you can browse the content of File Storage, create new buckets, or upload/delete files.
The other buckets are for internal purposes of Intelligent Automation Cloud Business. Do not use, modify, or delete them!
You can create your own buckets for your Business Processes, if needed.

You can delete files from your bucket, if you don't need them anymore.
Click Delete to confirm deletion, or Cancel to abort the operation.
