How to Upload a File/Resume(.doc and .pdf) in Object Storage Programatically

I have my code written in JQuery where I am uploading a file (resume) var input = document.getElementById('resumeFile); var file = input.files[0]; $.post({ url: “url of the space-object storage”, data : file, success: function(response) { alert(‘Success’+response); }, error: function(error) { alert(‘Failed’); }

I dont see the file in the space. Can someone throw some light where I am going wrong

Spaces requires authentication for uploads.

You should be able to use any S3-compatbile library so depending on which language the backend is written in. Here is an example for Node.js:
