Why are various third party accesses asked during installation
During installation, CloudFiles will ask for the following third party accesses -
- *.amazonaws.com - This is needed to upload files to AWS s3 storage. This permission is only applicable if you're using s3 as storage platform. This URL is maintained by Amazon
- api.cloudfiles.io - CloudFiles uses an external agent to do the heavy lifting of common file related tasks like upload, download etc. This API is security reviewed by Salesforce and other agencies.
- salesforce.cloudfiles.io - A domain used to show preview of files within Salesforce. This is governed by same policy as api.cloudfiles.io
- streamapi.cloudfiles.io - A domain used to facilitate file upload and download to external storages except AWS s3. This is governed by same policy as api.cloudfiles.io
