This week’s feature update is all about keys! Keep your API authentication secure with API keys and user authentication secure with custom OAuth keys.
API Key Rotation
Have you ever accidentally published your API key to an insecure location such as GitHub or email? Developers can now simply swap it out for a new key. Generate new API keys and deactivate older ones via the App Details page to conform to your organization’s key rotation policies or to protect against any security incidents.
Custom OAuth Keys
Kloudless developers have the option of importing their own OAuth keys to authenticate users. In contrast to the default keys used by Kloudless, custom OAuth keys enable your application to identify as itself when requesting access to a user’s account. You can modify the OAuth keys used by your application without invalidating tokens created for accounts connected with the previous set of OAuth keys. Visit the Credentials page for more information when switching keys for a cloud storage service.
Try out API key rotations and custom OAuth keys for yourself by logging into your developer account. Not using our universal storage API yet? Sign up for your free account here.
With improved Multipart and URL uploads, we can kiss goodbye to file size restrictions and say hello to efficiency.
URL uploads enable files to be obtained from a URL and uploaded to a location in cloud storage. Previously, file sizes were limited to only 100 MB. Now, URL uploads can support file sizes greater than 100 MB via an automatic multipart upload.
Multipart Uploads can directly upload large files, and now support seven additional cloud services: Azure, Amazon S3, Dropbox, Egnyte, Google Drive, OneDrive, ShareFile, SharePoint and OneDrive for Business.
Uploading in parts minimizes the consequences of failed uploads due to connection issues. Several cloud services require that files over a certain size be uploaded in parts. Developers can also parallelize uploads with Azure and Amazon S3, with support for parallel uploads to other services coming soon.

Kloudless developers have a new Ruby SDK, updated Python and Java SDKs, as well as an improved File Explorer at their fingertips.
A Ruby SDK is now available! Try it out here.
The Python and Java SDKs have been upgraded to include the Team and Permissions endpoints, as well as the Management API.
- The Team endpoint allows developers to easily request and retrieve information on their Users and Groups.
- The Permissions endpoint grants seamless management to the developer for user access and rights to their data.
- The Management API enables developers to conveniently control their Applications and API Keys.
You can access the Python SDK and Java SDK on Github, along with the rest of the Kloudless UI toolkit.
If you can recall, we open-sourced our File Explorer last October, but we’re not stopping there.
We’ve expanded the File Explorer’s events and methods. Check out the full list here.
The File Explorer now supports a search bar, allowing for users to easily search for and find files in an account. Improved sorting capabilities also aid in easily locating a file.
