Hi all,

We save some record fields that contain attachments in our airtable database. I've been asked if it's possible to send these files to an external company via POST api call from an airtable automation script. The call must be form-data and the endpoint is expecting a file in the key-value format. 

I've attempted sending the downloadable url but this is being rejected as expected. Is it possible to have the automation save the file from the downloadable url, and send that? I know there's some issues with sending files themselves with airtable. Any advice is appreciated, worst case we can download to our external database and send from there.
