Frontend for uploading files to the Tax Platform. Please DO NOT USE Test-Only and Internal-Use-Only endpoints WITHOUT PERMISSION

Build Status Download

Software Requirements

  • ClamAv Version 0.99 or later - the clam-av client ReadMe provides documentation on how to install or alternatively you can download and run the docker-clamav image. ClamAv is also configured to block Macros.
  • MongoDB Version 3.2 (3.4 will not work currently)
  • Requires an AWS Account

Run the application locally

Before you attempt to run file-upload-frontend locally ensure:

  • You have ClamAV running and the correct version of Mongo as per the Software Requirements above.

You can start/stop them with docker compose file - file-upload-compose.yml:

version: '3'
    image: mongo:3.2
    - "27017:27017"
    image: mkodockx/docker-clamav
    - "3310:3310"

and bash commands:

docker-compose -f file-upload-compose.yml up -d
docker-compose -f file-upload-compose.yml stop

AWS Account Setup Overview:

Once you have your AWS Account setup, you need to create two buckets which is where all files will be stored. See: Create A Bucket. One to represent quarantine and the other for transient. Choose the appropriate region from where you are running the app to avoid data latency: AWS Regions

When naming you buckets, please follow the: Rules of Bucket Naming Enable Versioning during the create bucket process because it is used to generate the FileRedId. For further details see configuration of buckets in: Working with Amazon S3 Buckets

Next follow the steps to: Create an IAM User and ensure Programmatic Access is selected. Then give the permission: AmazonS3FullAccess. This grants the user full access to use all APIs in S3. For more details about permissions see: AWS IAM Permissions

Once you have created your IAM user, you will have a pair of Access Keys automatically generated: AWS KEY ID and AWS SECRET ACCESS KEY. This is the only time AWS SECRET ACCESS KEY is shown. Only the AWS KEY ID is shown on the user profile. It is preferable to Download the .csv file ands store it somewhere safe. If lost, in the user profile, select "Make Inactive" on the Access Key and generate a new one.

How to Run App

By now you have your buckets and your IAM user created. Next you need to configure the following environment variables:


To find your bucket names go to S3. To find your AWS KEY and AWS SECRET, they will be in the .csv file you downloaded as mentioned.

Note: Setting the environment variables in system for S3 will cause the integration tests to fail because they use a mock library.

To run the application execute

sbt run

Alternatively, you can write up a bash script to have your terminal run with the environment variables mentioned.

S3_BUCKET_TRANSIENT=replace-with-your-bucket-name-for-transient \
S3_BUCKET_QUARANTINE=replace-with-your-bucket-name-for-quarantine \
AWS_KEY=replace-with-your-aws-key \
AWS_SECRET="replace-with-your-aws-secret" \
sbt run

The endpoints can then be accessed with the base url http://localhost:8899/

Upload File

Uploads a single file to the envelope via multipart form. File constraints (such as file type, max no of files and file size) are managed via the file-upload (back end) service. If a routing request has been created for an envelope, any attempts after to upload a file will be rejected.

POST    /file-upload/upload/envelopes/{envelope-Id}/files/{file-Id}
Responses Status Description
Ok 200 File successfully uploaded.
Bad Request 400 Explanation what went wrong, e.g.: Request must have exactly one file attached.
Not Found 404 Envelope not found.
Entity Too Large 413 File size exceeds limit to upload.
Unsupported Media Type 415 File type other than the supported type.
Locked 423 Routing request has been made for this Envelope.

Request (POST): localhost:8899/file-upload/upload/envelopes/0b215e97-11d4-4006-91db-c067e74fc653/files/file-id-1

Body (Multipart Form): A single binary file.

Note: If maxSizePerItem is specified in the envelope, then it is applied when the file is uploaded. Otherwise the default is 10MB.

Response: 200

Optional redirection

Upload File With Redirection-URL: You can provide optional navigation URLs for on success/failure(redirect-success-url/redirect-error-url) cases. They need to be provided as URL querry prameters. ex.: s"$UPLOAD_ENDPOINT?redirect-success-url="

On error we append to the provided error-url: s"?errorCode=$ERROR_CODE&reason=$BODY_OF_ERROR_RESPONSE".

  • The URL must begin with https (can be disabled on local instance).
  • The URL must be to a valid tax domain.
  • The URL decoration will be sanitized (no request parameters and anchors).
  • The URL request parameter's keys i.e. "redirect-success-url". If wrongly entered, they will be ignored and if there are no other errors response 200 will be given.
  • both redirection urls are not required.

Response: 301 on any redirection
