Import files from DigitalOcean Spaces

🤖/digitalocean/import imports whole directories of files from DigitalOcean Spaces.

Usage example

Import files from the path/to/files directory and its subdirectories:

  "steps": {
    "imported": {
      "robot": "/digitalocean/import",
      "path": "path/to/files/",
      "recursive": true


  • ignore_errors

    Array of Strings / Boolean ⋅ default: []

    Possible array members are "meta" and "import".

    You might see an error when trying to extract metadata from your imported files. This happens, for example, for files with a size of zero bytes. Including "meta" in the array will cause the Robot to not stop the import (and the entire Assembly) when that happens.

    Including "import" in the array will ensure the Robot does not cease to function on any import errors either.

    To keep backwards compatibility, setting this parameter to true will set it to ["meta", "import"] internally.

  • credentials


    Please create your associated Template Credentials in your Transloadit account and use the name of your Template Credentials as this parameter's value. They will contain the values for your DigitalOcean Space, Key, Secret and Region.

    While we recommend to use Template Credentials at all times, some use cases demand dynamic credentials for which using Template Credentials is too unwieldy because of their static nature. If you have this requirement, feel free to use the following parameters instead: "space", "region" (for example: "fra1" or "nyc3"), "key", "secret".

  • path

    String / Array of Stringsrequired

    The path in your bucket to the specific file or directory. If the path points to a file, only this file will be imported. For example: images/avatar.jpg.

    If it points to a directory, indicated by a trailing slash (/), then all files that are direct descendants of this directory will be imported. For example: images/.

    Directories are not imported recursively. If you want to import files from subdirectories and sub-subdirectories, enable the recursive parameter.

    You can also use an array of path strings here to import multiple paths in the same Robot's Step.

  • recursive

    Boolean ⋅ default: false

    Setting this to true will enable importing files from subdirectories and sub-subdirectories (etc.) of the given path.

    Please use the pagination parameters page_number and files_per_page wisely here.

  • page_number

    Integer ⋅ default: 1

    The pagination page number. For now, in order to not break backwards compatibility in non-recursive imports, this only works when recursive is set to true.

    When doing big imports, make sure no files are added or removed from other scripts within your path, otherwise you might get weird results with the pagination.

  • files_per_page

    Integer ⋅ default: 1000

    The pagination page size. This only works when recursive is true for now, in order to not break backwards compatibility in non-recursive imports.
