Extension for uploading attachments to third party storage solutions

I would like to request an extension that allows me to automatically upload attachments from Airtable to a third party storage solution of my choice, such as Amazon S3, Supabase Storage, or Uploadcare. The extension should then store a link to the file or image in Airtable, preferably with an option to generate expiring links for security reasons. This feature would be very useful for me because:

  • It would save me storage space on Airtable, which I am running out of, while still allowing me to use the record space that I have.
  • It would align with Airtable’s position that they are not a storage provider, and that users should use external services for storing large files or images.
  • It would give me more flexibility and control over how I store and access my attachments, as well as the ability to choose the best storage solution for my needs and budget.

Thank you for considering this feature request. I think it would benefit many other users who are looking for a better way to handle attachments in Airtable.

Given the decreases in storage quotas in the new Airtable plans, I would LOVE to see S3 integration implemented given the abundance of S3 providers, cheap price, and ease of use.

Hi @jamesodo. I have added your vote into the existing ticket. Thank you for your feedback and please let me know if there is anything else that I can help you with.

Appreciate it! One thing to add to the request… if S3 is built-in, it’s imperative that it’s NOT only AWS. Since it’s now a protocol used by hundreds of providers serving specific needs better than AWS, ideally this feature would be able to allow the user to specify the S3 endpoint to use whichever provider they’d like
