The admin console

The admin console enables you to change the settings of your Filestash instance. It can be accessed at: https://demo.filestash.app/admin

The admin console lets you:

  1. configure your instance with a whole range of customisations
  2. see your logs
  3. create a login screen which suits your specific needs. As an example: other instance screenshot

Configure the Dropbox connector

Configuring Dropbox must be done by:

  1. requesting access to the Dropbox API. Without this, Filestash can’t access anything stored on the Dropbox servers. To do that, go there, then:
    • click: “Create App”
    • select: “dropbox api”
    • select: “Full Dropbox” or “App folder”
    • type: “whatever name you want”
    • in the ‘redirect URI’ field, insert https://example.com/login
  2. store the client_id configuration given by Dropbox (also known as the App key) in the admin console or by setting the DROPBOX_CLIENT_ID environment variable

Configure the Google Drive connector

Configuring Google drive can be done by:

  1. Requesting access to the Google Drive API. Without this, Filestash cannot store anything on Google’s servers. To do that, you need to go there and enable the Drive API. Then, go there and create credentials that Filestash will be using to communicate with Google
  2. Publish the configuration provided by Google (client_id and client_secret) in your Filestash admin console or by setting the GDRIVE_CLIENT_ID and GDRIVE_CLIENT_SECRET environment variables
