Designer API doesn't allow file upload nor current auth user for keys generators


So I want to build a simple app and only to have access to the File Storage of Webflow, and I don’t want to do the OAuth using my website and a database or similar.

There is no need for redirections in this case, I’m having trouble figuring out a way to do it in this case, I want to simplify the user’s steps, so they don’t have the need to go login to my app and bla bla bla.

Why Designer API doesn’t give us access to file storage, at least we know which user is logged in or at least the auth code of the current user so we can generate in background access_tokens. This is very important and needs to be added as soon as possible.

Thanks, Do you have any recommendations?

Hi Benjamin, I don’t think it’s going to be possible without authenticating your user via a data client / hybrid app.

Hi @az_ben, as Tim said this is currently only possible by creating a data client.
