The built-in Bucket channel will create a temporary storage table, or object, in the pipeline and then access that data which will be available for all your future logics.
The steps you can use with Buckets fall into five categories: Objects, Pipeline Objects, Pipeline Rows, Rows, and Tables.
|Trigger||Object Created||Triggers when a new object is created in Pipelines.|

We store the file as chunks in Google Cloud Storage Buckets. Every chunk can be accessed for 24 hours, which means that your download link is active for 24 hours.
There is no hard limit on the file size that can be generated. The focus is on downloading or uploading the file to another platform. If downloaded via the generated link the file can be a maximum of 32 MB or the download time should not be more than a minute. Those limits are different for different channels, for example, if the file is uploaded to Google Drive.
Note: The download URL is randomly generated and everyone with the URL can download the file.
Use case examples
The following are some examples of using the Dropbox channel.
In this example, when file is added or changed in Dropbox, we want to upload the file to Quickbase.
- We add the Dropbox step File Added or changed.
- We find our Quickbase record using the step, Look Up a Record.
- We upload the file with the Quickbase step Upload a file.
