Solved About links
I'm considering using Cubby as a remote shared images repository for an IIIF Cantaloupe server.
I have a question about the links, what is the difference between the open link and share link? both provide public access to the file. The former offers access via the API but is it useful in the backend? It unnecessarily exposes an access token for all files. Am I wrong?
There is a feature I would like to have: for each directory, download in csv format the list of files with for each file: name, uptated date, size and share link (and gift for my use case only the SID).
I noticed that the blog https://blog.getcubby.org/ is down.
Indeed, the open link contains the access token. The intention here was to just be able to open a specific file in a new tab, not to share this link, but I can see how this is easily misused. For better handling, I think I would need to implement a local cookie based session, which is currently not done.
So for your use-case, the share link seems to be the correct one.
(thanks for the hint about the blog. It is up again)
This was fixed some versions ago by implementing session based auth
