Use 3rd Party APIs with FileManager

Hello Syncfusion Team,

I really need your help in integrating 3rd party API's (Like Google Drive, Dropbox) with the file manager component by syncfusion. 

As of now it uses : https://ej2services.syncfusion.com/production/web-services/api/FileManager/FileOperations

Instead I need to call Google Drive Api to list out and Render the folder structure from Google Drive. Need to know if File manager component is feasible for this purpose.

Thanks & Regards,

Hi Ahish,  
Greetings from Syncfusion support.  
We have implemented “Access files from storage services(Azure, Google Drive, Dropbox, etc)” feature internally and this will be included in our upcoming Volume 2, 2019 release which will be rolled out by the end of this month.

Hi there, are there any plans to be able to use the file manager with Amazon S3 buckets?  I like the file manager but we store all of our files on amazon.

Hi Matt, 
Good day to you. 
Azure, Google drive file system provider. 
We have provided support for Azure, Google Drive file system provider in our Volume 2 Release. Refer the below link for this feature. 
Amazon S3 buckets support 
We have already considered this feature (Amazon S3 buckets support) in file manager component. We are expecting that this feature will be completed on September second week. If it is completed, we will update the status to you. Until then you can track the below feedback link to know the feature status. 
Dropbox support 
Currently, we have not provided support for Dropbox in file manager component. We have considered this as feature from our end. This feature will be included in any one of our upcoming releases. Until then, you can track the below feedback link to know the feature status.

Hi Matt, 
We are glad to announce that AmazonS3 bucket is now available in below location. 
Steps to run the service: 
1.     Create an Amazon S3 account and then create S3 bucket to perform the file operations. 
2.     Then, open the AmazonS3FileProvider Controller and register your Amazon S3 client account details like awsAccessKeyId, awsSecretAccessKey, bucketRegion, and bucketName details in RegisterAmazonS3 method to perform the file operations. 
Refer the  below code snippet  
// You can use your login credentials  in below method in controller    
void RegisterAmazonS3(string bucketName, string awsAccessKeyId, string awsSecretAccessKey, string bucketRegion) 
3.     After run the project file, and refer the localhost URL link in file manager sample. 
Kindly check the above sample and get back to us if you need any further assistance. 
Ashokkumar B.
