Using /upload_session/append_v2 is is possible to upload chunks in parallel?

Helpful | Level 5

Using /upload_session/append_v2 is it possible to upload chunks in parallel.  Namely call /upload_session/append_v2 again before a previous one has finished?

 

The API would seem to allow it (given that it has an offset) but the "incorrect_offset" error perhaps indicates that it isn't allowed.

 

Any hints much appreciated!

 

Thanks

 

Nick

Hi Nick, no, unfortunately you can't upload multiple chunks for the same upload session in parallel. Each upload session only has a single correct "offset" at any one point in time, and it has to match when you upload any chunk.

You can run multiple different upload sessions (i.e. for multiple different files) though. I recommend reading the data ingress guide if you haven't already:
