Use 24Files with Apex


The following capitalized items need to be replaced by your specific values when calling the 24Files Apex methods:

  • RECORD_ID = ID of the record

  • FOLDER = relative folder to the record folder. Note: in case of anonymous access, you can only upload in the public folder. Hence, leave the FOLDER argument empty ''.

  • USE_ANONYMOUS_AUTH = set to ‘true’ to use anonymous auth or ‘false’ to use authenticated auth

  • EMAIL_ADDRESS = email address where results should be sent to

  • CONTENT_VERSION_ID = Salesforce content version id where the file is stored in

  • PATH = relative path to the file from the record folder


  • With APEX, file uploads are limited to a maximum size of 35 MB per file.

  • The getFileLink APEX method returns a link with an expiration duration that has been set in the 24Files Settings page in the 24Files Manager app.
