Batch Files Upload

IMPORTANT: Unlike Publish Usage Events, this solution will not work out of the box, and you will need to work with to make sure these files have all the information necessary and can be understood by Productiv.

In some special circumstances, you may need to upload a large batch of files to us. You can use this upload API to send us those files programmatically. Be sure to contact us about the format of these files or they may not get processed properly.


  • Before this API can be queried you should have already setup the application for which you will be publishing usage events. Once thats done you should have a unique appId that can be used to query these APIs. Visit the Setup an Application section to see how to do so.

  • In order to query this API, you would also need to send an access_token as part of the Authorization header. To see the steps for generating an access token checkout Authorization.

  • To upload files to Productiv, you will need to follow two steps:

    • The first step is to make a GET request to Productiv, specifying the list of filenames to be uploaded. The response of this API call will return signed upload URLs for each filename specified. See Get Upload URLs Endpoint for more details.
    • The second step required to complete the upload to Productiv, is to make a PUT requests with each file to upload, using the signed URL returned for each file in the first step. You can see an example of this PUT request below
