What are the different link types CloudApp has?

CloudApp has three different link types: share, direct and download.

1. Share links: https://share.getcloudapp.com/mXumYXZn

Use a share link when you would like to have an easily viewable page to access the file or image. These also auto-expand/unfurl in apps like Slack and HipChat to display a smaller version of the file in-line.

2. Direct links: https://tmp.f8.n0.cdn.getcloudapp.com/items/mXumYXZn/Image+2020-01-09+at+11.40.39+AM.png?v=20e5a4fa3f1ed314b2a36c69ea67a6a7

Direct links are used to access a file directly and bypass the viewer page. You can use them to paste an image directly into an HTML code of your web page.

3. Download links: https://share.getcloudapp.com/items/mXumYXZn/download

Download links are helpful when you want a link to automatically trigger a download and save to the user’s computer.
