Working with Files
Through the Files page, you can work with files. After you upload files for your account, they are available for all of the account applications.
The CloudEDGE Workers and microsite features both use uploaded files. Information specific to working with handler and microsite files, including previewing files, is located in Working with CloudEDGE Handlers and Workers and Working with Microsites.
