Uploading to cloud with Linux bash script?

Go to solution

Seems the only way to upload data to the cloud is to use the Windows/Mac client or a browser. Pretty useless imo.

 

Is there any way to upload data from Linux using a bash script or some other utility (Non GUI)

 

If not can this be added as a feature request?

 

I've got 500GB of cloud storage which is as good as useless.

Hi @gregm,

 

Sorry- BT Cloud doesn't currently support non-GUI uploads, and it's not something that's on our 1 year roadmap.

 

Thanks very much for taking the time to let us know it's something you'd like to see - it is a feature request that periodically pops up on our forums, so it's useful to get a sense for how many people are interested.

 

Realistically, the number of users who would benefit from a non-gui interface is very low (it's just the proper techheads like me), and so I'm not going to be able to prioritise this feature in our roadmap for as long as I have a list of other feature requests that have more mass market appeal.

 

I'm aware that this wasn't the answer you were hoping for, but I wanted to be honest about the chances of seeing this feature in the near future.

 

Thanks,

Joe V (Senior Product Manager, BT Cloud)

This is another vote for BT to introduce an API for their cloud storage. Three years on since the original post and nothing has changed other than nowadays it is 1000GB that is unusable.

Continuing to use Dropbox and Google Drive here.

+1 that would be a great addition, not only power users could use command lines but it also means the ability to develop plugins for other apps i.e. nextcloud
