Provide a direct binary access feature to Oak which allows an authenticated client to create or download blobs directly to/from the blob store, assuming the authenticated user has appropriate permission to do so. The primary value of this feature is that the I/O of transferring large binary files to or from the blob store can be offloaded entirely from Oak and performed directly between a client application and the blob store.
This feature is described in more detail on the Oak wiki.
This feature is similar in functionality to
OAK-6575. It adds the capability to also upload directly to storage via preauthorized URLs in addition to downloading directly from storage via preauthorized URLs.
