File management

nedyx offers a range of functionalities for uploading files from the local device to the nedyx server and processing them there.

This means that documents such as invoices, damage reports, terms of use and similar can be stored in the desired format such as pdf, doc, xls, zip, ... and made available for download or e-mail delivery.

The various options and functions are described below. The detailed use of the individual functions can be found in their function descriptions.


  • The nedyx server offers the available S3 file system for storing the files (e.g. AWS S3 in the Amazon AWS Cloud or OpenIO for on-premises installations).

  • The files are stored under a random name in the file system on the nedyx server. However, the UPLOADFILE and DOWNLOADFILE functions offer the option to use the original file name.

  • The files are available for all apps in the current workspace. It is not possible to access the files from another workspace.

  • The files remain in the file system until they are deleted using the DELETEFILE function. It is recommended to delete files after usage by the DELETEFILE function to prevent permanent occupation of unnecessary storage space.
