Many Shell applications require users to upload files. This can be a simple text file, a CSV file, or even a PDF file to be processed for further use. Or in some cases, it can be some sort of media files such as an image, audio, or video file to be transformed and uploaded to cloud storage such as S3 or Google Cloud Storage.
In such cases, you might want to track when a user uploads a file in your Shell application and optionally notify you and your team when a user uploads a file. This way, you can always be aware of the activity in your application and take immediate action if needed.
Fortunately, here at LogSnag, we have created a powerful solution for this problem. LogSnag is a powerful, real-time event tracking tool that works seamlessly with any Shell application. With LogSnag, you can set up event tracking for anything you want and track when a user uploads a file in your Shell application in real time. In addition, LogSnag allows you to track user journeys and create a timeline of events for each user. This way, you can always track the activity of a specific user, such as when they have uploaded files and any other activity they have done in your application.
