Yandex Object Storage

Note

You can use any photo hosting service to add a small number of images, such as wampi, imgbb, ImageShack, or imgur. This way you can quickly get direct links to your images to add them to the task file or instructions.

To try out Yandex Cloud, you can activate a Free trial.

Steps to follow

To use files from Yandex Cloud:

  1. Create a bucket in Object Storage. To learn how to do this, go to Getting started.

    Note

    Create a bucket with public access. This way you won't need to generate a link to each file separately.

  2. Select a bucket and upload your files. Files will be accessible to anyone with a link. We recommend using hashed file names to keep your files secure. You can generate hashes using online tools (for example, Online MD5 Hash Generator). Learn more about hashing.

    Note

    You can set the lifetime of files in the bucket so that they are automatically deleted after a specified number of days. Learn more.

  3. If you restricted access to the bucket, you need to get a separate link for each file by following the instructions.

    Select a file and click Get a link → Copy.

    All file links are created by the same template.

    Links look like this:

    https://<bucket-name>.s3.<region-code>.amazonaws.com/<filename>
    

    The link in the folder looks like this:

    https://<bucket-name>.s3.<region-code>.amazonaws.com/<path-to-file>/<filename>
    

    Note

    To quickly get links to other files, copy the link to one of them and replace <filename> with the names of other files.

  4. In the file with tasks, paste the links in the column that matches the input data field to which this data is passed.

    For example, if you want to use images in the image field, specify the file links in the INPUT:image column:

    INPUT:image
    https://storage.yandexcloud.net/my-bucket/1.jpg
    https://storage.yandexcloud.net/my-bucket/2.jpg
