Hi!

I noticed that the "Download URL” from OneDrive's New File Trigger expires after a few hours. When I post this “Download URL” on Discord, the link becomes broken when it expires.

Is there another Zapier App that can host my images forever and costs a tiny fee?

Hi @Oppai-Man - We don’t have an Imgur app at this time. Most new Zapier integrations are actually built by the companies/teams that created the apps themselves. Here’s how new services typically get added to Zapier:

It would be best to encourage their team to add their app to Zapier via our developer platform:

Requests like this always carry a bit more weight when they come from customers rather than us.

Hey @Oppai-Man 

For your use case, I would also say there are a number of other options other than Imugr:

  1. Google Drive/Dropbox - Both allow hosting of images which you can make publicly available
  2. Amazon S3 - This does require some messing around with AWS, and it can be quite overwhelming if you’re new to it. However - It’s almost always going to be the cheapest option
  3. Cloudinary is a really good shout - And it has a lovely UI - You can also do amazing image transformations… 
  4. There are loads of other apps here:  https://zapier.com/apps/categories/files
  5. Lastly - If @Wemakefuture has sold you on Imugr and you will accept no substitutes - They do have an API which you can use webhooks to send images to: https://api.imgur.com/endpoints/image - But this is the most technical of my solutions, and to be honest, probably not worth it for what you need. 

Hope that helps!

Imgur 

 

You can push them over to imgur and save them there from there you can insert in discord. If privacy is a concern you should think about a DMS or CDN (or a simple ftp)

@Wemakefuture , I can't find the Imgur app in Zapier

 

 

This solution must be fully automated inside Zapier. Meaning that after implementation it shouldn't require human input.
