Extension I: File Upload Service

File Upload Service

The File Upload Extension is required by the UEM App and provides base components which are used by the package upload wizard. It is automatically installed when installing or updating the UEM Extension and is hidden in the Extension Gallery.

The Package Upload Wizard in UEM/SUEM App uses the configured storage for temporary file storage. The packages are uploaded to Azure and downloaded by the core system. After the upload is finished or not successful ended the file is removed from Azure.
