I am using the REST API to upload images to Miro automatically, but I can only figure out how to do this from a public server. I’d like to know if it’s possible to do this while keeping the data completely private.
I am doing a data science project where I am automatically generating reports for sports players based on their performance data. I am generating the reports on Miro so that my client can edit them before exporting to pdf. I have a large number of plots, which I need to put on Miro automatically when a python script is run. My script works great when I use publicly accessible URLs on my personal website, but now we’re starting to work with sensitive data, so that’s not ideal. I know it’s unlikely that anyone is going to find unlisted images on a tiny website, but I need to be able to reassure my client that their data is very safe. Hence my search for a way to use a private server.
Initially I tried uploading from my hard drive, but this turned out not to be possible (unless I missed something). I also tried creating a local server and uploading the files from there, but no luck. Shareable links from Google Drive didn’t work either. Today I tried using the Google Drive API to access the files, but I’m not succeeding so far. I know my credentials are working because I can access the files from my script, but Miro is not liking the link I gave it:
"type" : "error",
"code" : "3.0802",
"message" : "Uploading resource failed: Sorry, this URL is not supported",
"status" : 400
To be honest, though, the link I gave it was a shareable one I got from the Google Drive GUI, just like the one I tried some time ago without the Drive API - so I doubt I’m actually even using my API credentials here. I’m very new to Google Cloud Services so I’m still pretty confused about how it all works. Maybe there’s a way to let the Miro API and Google Drive API talk to one another properly, but I don’t know enough to know where to look.
I’m out of ideas now. Can anyone please assist me? I would very much appreciate it.
