Upload local keystore to apify


Is there a way to upload a keystore and request queue from a local run to apify?



you can use forceCloud option for openKeyValueStore or openRequestQueue function.


Thanks ! I will give this a try!


Hmm I cannot use the forceCloud option. If I try to run this code:

const options = {
        forceCloud : true,
const requestQueue = await Apify.openRequestQueue('msn.com/de-at/autos/motorrad', options );

I get this error:

I cannot figure out why this happens?


I think you will need to use a URL friendly name, like ‘msn-com-de-at’.
But is is strange I got this error with your code:

ApifyClientError: Invalid value provided: Name can only contain letters ‘a’ through ‘z’, the digits ‘0’ through ‘9’, and the hyphen (’-’) but only in the middle of the string (e.g. ‘my-value-1’)

Can you try to run it using apify CLI? There you can easily call apify login and you will be logged under your Apify account on your local PC.
