Upload to shared folder via powershell

I need to share files with an external company on a daily basis; their solution for this was to provide a link to a shared folder in sharefile (i.e. https://companyname.sharefile.com/share/getinfo/id). When I load that page, I have to supply my email and name but no password.  I can then upload the files.

I want to automate this process but all of the of the documentation appears for uploading to an authenticated share, not a public one.

Can anyone point me to some documentation on how to do this?  I've already installed the POSH snap-in.


Thanks,

If they are willing to allocate a user to you and give it the correct privileges, then you should be able to use powershell and the API to upload because it uses and authenticated user to connect.  Just ask your partner to create you a user (there will be a monthly fee to do so unless they already have a userID for this purpose).  That user will have to have upload permissions on the folder in question.
