Known Limitations

  • "Enable Multiple Files Upload" property is not available due to IPFS handling
  • For automatic file unpinning to work correctly upon form record deletion, you must enable "Delete Associated Child Form Data?" property in list-type userview menus or delete actions
    (e.g.: CRUD Menu, Datalist Delete Action).


This plugin is based on the default bundled File Upload form element.

Aside from functioning just like a usual File Upload form element, this plugin also performs these actions:

  • When a new file is uploaded, the file is also uploaded to IPFS and pinned on the IPFS node
  • When a file replaces an existing file, if the file content differs, the old file is unpinned and the new file is uploaded to IPFS and pinned on the IPFS node
  • When file is removed or related form record is deleted, file is unpinned on the IPFS node

This plugin integrates with Blockfrost for IPFS functionality.

The plugin source codes can be found at JogetOSS Github. Feel free to clone and customize to suit your needs.
