Only two weeks after the release of Strapi v4.8 which included custom roles and permissions (also known as RBAC) in the community edition, we're back with another release! This new version facilitates the transfer of your data between environments and allows you to configure secure private S3 buckets to store media. Read on to learn more!
We're on a mission to provide the best experience when it comes to managing the data of your Strapi projects. We released data export & import in Strapi v4.6, and data transfer - push data in Strapi v4.7, to give you the possibility to transfer your data to another Strapi project.
Now, with the transfer data - pull feature released in v4.9, you can transfer your data from another Strapi project. All this is made for you to manage your data without manually acting on the database: you just need to run one command from the CLI.
Data pull completes the transfer cycle, allowing you to transfer data from a remote environment to a local one. To perform this action, create a transfer token on the source project, defining the expiration time and the pull permission. Then launch the transfer command with the ---from option targeting the source project. Please have a look at the documentation for more details.
With the data transfer functionality, you can synchronize local data with staging environment data (or vice versa), or the staging environment data to the production environment data, to bring alignment of content between two instances. No need to spend time and effort to act manually on the database!
This functionality also facilitates the deployment of your project on Strapi Cloud. Have a look at this tutorial to learn how to do it.
Strapi supports various providers for the media library, including AWS S3. With this integration, you can easily configure an S3 storage bucket for your app. However, it was not possible to use Private S3 buckets before, which was a blocker for many users who needed to comply with data privacy standards. To reinforce the security, we've improved this provider and from now on, it's also possible to configure Private S3 buckets.
This enhancement allows you to use private Amazon S3 buckets to add files and see those files or assets in the content manager. You can share links that appear on the Content Manager, and they will expire based on the signedUrlExpires configuration. If you want to switch your S3 bucket from public to private, it will still work for the media which were uploaded already. Please read the documentation for more details.
The support for private S3 provider improves the media management experience for content editors who prefer to use S3 buckets privately by allowing them to upload and visualize assets securely while the content API returns secure and private asset URLs. In the future, we plan to add support for other private storage providers. You can upvote the ones you'd like to see next on our public roadmap.
