Angular (Legacy) image and video upload

Last updated: Jul-16-2023

When using the Angular SDK, you can use one of several options to upload files directly to Cloudinary without the need for server-side operations or authentication signatures.

Upload options


  • 3rd party Angular upload tools: There are a number of Angular and Angular 2.x and later 3rd party upload tools available. Configure your upload tool to upload to your Cloudinary product environment and use an upload preset to define your upload parameters.

Upload endpoint

The upload endpoint is${cloudName}/upload. To use the endpoint in your application, write a function that calls the Cloudinary upload endpoint and pass:

jQuery SDK with Blueimp File Upload adapter

If you are using jQuery in your app, you can take advantage of the built-in upload functionality in Cloudinary's jQuery SDK. This solution uses modern HTML5 cross-origin resource sharing (CORS) and gracefully degrades to a seamless iframe based solution for older browsers.

Each of the upload options described above can also be performed as a signed upload, but in this case, an authentication signature must be generated on your backend server. This can be implemented in conjunction with one of Cloudinary's backend SDKs, which implement helpers to automatically generate the authentication signature for the upload.
