Enabling uploads to Nimble Studio workstations - Amazon Nimble Studio

Enabling uploads to Nimble Studio workstations

This tutorial is for admins who want to enable uploads to their artists’ workstations. For information about how artists can upload files to their workstations, see Uploading files to your virtual workstation.

You can allow your artists to upload data from their local machine to their workstation by enabling Amazon Nimble Studio uploads. By enabling uploads, your artists can upload images and other files to their workstations for content creation. When you enable uploads, you can specify the location on the workstation where artists can upload their data.
