DigitalOcean Spaces Files Upload trough Appsmith S3 Connector, File permissions as pulic

Hi, I am using Appsmith S3 conector to upload images DigitalOcean Space, I was able to succesfully upload images, however I have to manually set up permissions to Public. Since the enduser wont have access to digitalocean Space, I need these files to be public when they are upladed. Is there any way to setup permisions to public to a file, not using the Dashboard, maybe througt an API call with the file url as a parameter. ?

Yes, you can set the permissions of an object in DigitalOcean Spaces to public programmatically using the DigitalOcean Spaces API. You’ll want to make a PUT request to the specific object’s URL and include the proper headers to set the ACL (Access Control List) to public.

Here’s a general example using a command-line tool like curl:

curl -X PUT -H "Content-Type: application/json" -H "Authorization: Bearer YOUR_ACCESS_KEY" -d '{"acl":"public-read"}' "https://your-space-name.sf

You can refer to the DigitalOcean Spaces API documentation for more details on ACL and other options: DigitalOcean Spaces API - Object ACL
