File Manager

Last updated:

In addition to the developer file system, HubSpot's file manager can be used to store and serve files. Files in the file manager are served over HubSpot's global content delivery network (CDN).

By default, all files uploaded to the file manager are publicly accessible and may be indexed in search engines. After uploading your files, you can manage your file's visibility settings to prevent files from being indexed or accessed. 

The File Manager can be found at Marketing > File and Templates > Files in the top navigation menu.


When to use the File Manager

Generally, the file manager should be used for files intended to be utilized in file pickers throughout HubSpot. For example, when selecting an image in an image or rich text module.

Serving HTML and JS files from the file manager

HTML and JavaScript files uploaded to the File Manager and served using a default HubSpot domain to serve files (i.e., use Content Type: text/plain . This means web browsers will not render and evaluate the code.

If a user goes directly to an HTML file there it will display the HTML code itself to the user. To avoid this, you must serve these files from one of your connected domains instead of a HubSpot default domain.
