Downloading Files from Cloud Storage

To download files, excluding files that contain personally identifiable information, you may navigate to:


This downloads the file direclty from Amazon S3 with a temporary link that lasts only a few minutes. Usually these URLs are generated via an Marketplace app:

from urllib.parse import urlencode

client_id = os.environ['ALLI_CLIENT_ID']
filename = os.environ['ALLI_S3_KEY_PREFIX']+'your_filename_here.csv'

query_string = urlencode({'file': filename})

download_link = f'{client_id}/download?{query_string}'


For more information see How to Read and Write Files to a Client's S3 Bucket.
