File download link not working

I'm using KCSFileStore uploadData and I want to receive a valid url download link from [uploadInfo remoteURL] but instead, I receive a link with ?GoogleAccessId=xxxx... etc that can't be accesed.

When I click on the click, I get SignatureDoesNotMatch and " The request signature we calculated does not match the signature you provided. Check your Google secret key and signing method. ".

However, If I remove all the characters that are after "?" the link is valid, it works.

Here is where I upload the photo:

- (void)uploadPhotoWithData:(NSData*)photoData WithCompletionBlock:(KCSFileUploadCompletionBlock)completionBlock


KCSMetadata* metadata = [[KCSMetadata alloc] init]; // make the image findable by al users

[metadata setGloballyReadable:YES];

[KCSFileStore uploadData:photoData options:@{KCSFilePublic : @(YES),

KCSFileFileName : @"myFile.ext",

KCSFileMimeType : @"image/jpeg",

KCSFileACL : metadata}

completionBlock:^(KCSFile *uploadInfo, NSError *error) {

if (completionBlock) {

completionBlock(uploadInfo, error);


NSLog(@"Upload finished. File id='%@', error='%@'.", [uploadInfo fileId], error);

} progressBlock:nil];


And here is where I get the url.

[KnvyM uploadPhotoWithData:self.photoData WithCompletionBlock:^(KCSFile *uploadInfo, NSError *error) {

if (error == nil){

[[KCSUser activeUser] setValue:[uploadInfo fileId] forAttribute:@"photo_url"];

[[KCSUser activeUser] setValue:[uploadInfo fileId] forAttribute:@"photo_download_url"];

[[KCSUser activeUser] saveWithCompletionBlock:^(NSArray *objectsOrNil, NSError *errorOrNil)

{ ... }];

Hi there,

We had some issues previously with image uploads but deployed a fix for this. Are you seeing this issue still?
