Upload a file without authentication

Code sample


For more information, see the Cloud Storage Node.js API reference documentation.

 * TODO(developer): Uncomment the following lines before running the sample.
// The ID of your GCS bucket
// const bucketName = 'your-unique-bucket-name';

// The contents that you want to upload
// const contents = 'these are my contents';

// The new ID for your GCS file
// const destFileName = 'your-new-file-name';

// Imports the Google Cloud Node.js client library
const {Storage} = require('@google-cloud/storage');

// Creates a client
const storage = new Storage();

async function uploadWithoutAuthentication() {
  const file = storage.bucket(bucketName).file(destFileName);

  // Returns an authenticated endpoint to which
  // you can make requests without credentials.
  const [location] = await file.createResumableUpload(); //auth required

  // Passes the location to file.save so you don't need to
  // authenticate this call
  await file.save(contents, {
    uri: location,
    resumable: true,
    validation: false,

  console.log(`${destFileName} uploaded to ${bucketName}`);
