Upload multiple images to Cloudinary

Assuming that each image upload adds a row, Glide Tables should handle that fine. There will be some backlogging, but it shouldn’t get more than a few minutes behind.

Thanks @Mark

@Manan_Mehta i don’t have experience with such number of requests.

It is correct that you don’t want to upload more than one image at a time? You just have users?

Correct. I want to upload 1 picture at a time but many concurrent users.

I am setting up this application but there is not enough program code in the table, who can give a link to it?

@ArshinSV I have added the script to a sheet inside Google sheets as scripts are not copied when you copy an app. It is in the sheet called Google script. Put it into the script editor

You will have to copy the app again to get the script in Google sheets

or

here it is:

 ImportJSONFromSheet   For use by end users to import JSON from one of the Sheets

 ImportJSONViaPost     For use by end users to import a JSON feed from a URL using POST parameters

 ImportJSONAdvanced    For use by script developers to easily extend the functionality of this library

 ImportJSONBasicAuth   For use by end users to import a JSON feed from a URL with HTTP Basic Auth (added by Karsten Lettow)

Changelog:

1.6.0 (June 2, 2019) Fixed null values (thanks @gdesmedt1)

1.5.0 (January 11, 2019) Adds ability to include all headers in a fixed order even when no data is present for a given header in some or all rows.

1.4.0 (July 23, 2017) Transfer project to Brad Jasper. Fixed off-by-one array bug. Fixed previous value bug. Added custom annotations. Added ImportJSONFromSheet and ImportJSONBasicAuth.

1.3.0 Adds ability to import the text from a set of rows containing the text to parse. All cells are concatenated

1.2.1 Fixed a bug with how nested arrays are handled. The rowIndex counter wasn’t incrementing properly when parsing.

1.2.0 Added ImportJSONViaPost and support for fetchOptions to ImportJSONAdvanced

1.1.1 Added a version number using Google Scripts Versioning so other developers can use the library

1.1.0 Added support for the noHeaders option

1.0.0 Initial release

/**

  • Imports a JSON feed and returns the results to be inserted into a Google Spreadsheet. The JSON feed is flattened to create

  • a two-dimensional array. The first row contains the headers, with each column header indicating the path to that data in

  • the JSON feed. The remaining rows contain the data.

  • By default, data gets transformed so it looks more like a normal data import. Specifically:

    • Data from parent JSON elements gets inherited to their child elements, so rows representing child elements contain the values
  •  of the rows representing their parent elements.
    
    • Values longer than 256 characters get truncated.
    • Headers have slashes converted to spaces, common prefixes removed and the resulting text converted to title case.
  • To change this behavior, pass in one of these values in the options parameter:

  • noInherit: Don’t inherit values from parent elements

  • noTruncate: Don’t truncate values

  • rawHeaders: Don’t prettify headers

  • noHeaders: Don’t include headers, only the data

  • allHeaders: Include all headers from the query parameter in the order they are listed

  • debugLocation: Prepend each value with the row & column it belongs in

  • For example:

  • =ImportJSON(“http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/standardfeeds/most_popular?v=2&alt=json”, “/feed/entry/title,/feed/entry/content”,

  •           "noInherit,noTruncate,rawHeaders")
    
  • @param {url} the URL to a public JSON feed

  • @param {query} a comma-separated list of paths to import. Any path starting with one of these paths gets imported.

  • flattened to create a two-dimensional array. The first row contains the headers, with each column header indicating the path to

  • that data in the JSON feed. The remaining rows contain the data.

  • To retrieve the JSON, a POST request is sent to the URL and the payload is passed as the content of the request using the content

  • type “application/x-www-form-urlencoded”. If the fetchOptions define a value for “method”, “payload” or “contentType”, these

  • values will take precedent. For example, advanced users can use this to make this function pass XML as the payload using a GET

  • request and a content type of “application/xml; charset=utf-8”. For more information on the available fetch options, see

  • Class UrlFetchApp  |  Apps Script  |  Google Developers . At this time the “headers” option is not supported.

  • By default, the returned data gets transformed so it looks more like a normal data import. Specifically:

    • Data from parent JSON elements gets inherited to their child elements, so rows representing child elements contain the values
  • of the rows representing their parent elements.

  • set to pass a POST request with post parameters. For more information on the available parameters, see

  • Class UrlFetchApp  |  Apps Script  |  Google Developers .

  • Use the include and transformation functions to determine what to include in the import and how to transform the data after it is

  • imported.

  • For example:

  • ImportJSON(“http://gdata.youtube.com/feeds/api/standardfeeds/most_popular?v=2&alt=json”,

  •          function (data, row, column) { data[row][column] = data[row][column].toString().substr(0, 100); } )
    
  • In this example, the import function checks to see if the path to the data being imported starts with the query. The transform

  • function takes the data and truncates it. For more robust versions of these functions, see the internal code of this library.

  • @param {url} the URL to a public JSON feed

  • @param {transformFunc} a function with the signature func(data, row, column, options) where data is a 2-dimensional array of the data

  •                    and row & column are the current row and column being processed. Any return value is ignored. Note that row 0
