Direct Uploads

POST /direct_uploads

This endpoint manages direct-to-s3 uploads. You must POST metadata about the file you wish to upload directly. On success, a “blob” will be created in the database, which in this case is strictly only a reference to the location fo the file on S3. Despite the name, it does not contain the actual file data.

The request returns a signed AWS S3 url to which the actual file content should be posted. When that post has completed, then—and only then—you may submit a scan to the /scans endpoint to store a scan associated with the user.
