The local file connector allows you to upload a Parquet file from your machine directly to Shaped. It is not recommended for production use-cases but can be used for experimentation or testing.

Unlike any of the other connectors the data connectors, you must upload your file directly to Shaped rather than have Shaped pull it from you. To do this, call the Create Model endpoint with the File connection_config type, and the source of the schema pointing to a local file. The request will return a response containing a signed URL and fields to an S3 bucket. You can then upload the corresponding source file to this bucket and Shaped will train from it.
