RStudio Connect fileInput widget for parameterized reports is still broken

Hey @skadauke !

So sorry for the trouble here. Unfortunately, I believe that this is still broken and does not have a solution yet. :frowning_face:

Did any of the workarounds or solutions proposed here seem amenable to you?

In particular, my latest meanderings lead me to imagine a workflow like the following:

  • upload file to Shiny app
  • Shiny app pins the file
  • Shiny app renders an Rmd pointing to this pin
  • Shiny app redirects user to the rendered Rmd

There are some tricky bits of this workflow (namely, how to get the Rmd to point at the pin, how to give the user access to the report, etc.), but I am inclined to try a little prototype if that workflow would be helpful!
