In Sisense Linux distribution you are able to upload files to the local environment using a 3rd party tool, which is embedded in the Sisense platform.

Power-Shell 1 file upload Example - Version <=L20121.3

The script below will allow the user to upload files programmatically, using REST command. The script itself is written in Powershell.
 
Change the first 4 parameters
dns - The URL you use for your Sisense site
RemoteLocation - The location of the target file within File Manager
FilePath - The local location of the file from the Local Server
AUTH_TOEN - Generate a token and replace it with <token>
$dns= 'https://myhost.sisense.com'
$RemoteLocation= 'data/Test'
$FilePath = 'C:\myfolder\myfile.csv';
$AUTH_TOKEN = 'Bearer <Token>'

###############################################################
$pos = $FilePath.LastIndexOf("\")
$URL = $dns+'/app/explore/!/upload?vId=0&rename=0&to=/'+$RemoteLocation;
$filename = $FilePath.Substring($pos+1)
$fileBytes = [System.IO.File]::ReadAllBytes($FilePath);
$fileEnc = [System.Text.Encoding]::GetEncoding('UTF-8').GetString($fileBytes);
$boundary = [System.Guid]::NewGuid().ToString(); 
$LF = "`r`n";
$Headers = @{'Authorization'=$AUTH_TOKEN};

$bodyLines = ( 
 "--$boundary",
 "Content-Disposition: form-data; name=`"filename`"; filename=`"$filename`"",
 "Content-Type: application/octet-stream$LF",
 $fileEnc,
 "--$boundary--$LF" 
) -join $LF

Invoke-RestMethod -Uri $URL -Method Post -ContentType "multipart/form-data; boundary=`"$boundary`"" -headers $Headers -Body $bodyLines

Python Example For Folder Syncing (Upload Only)

In this example you can set a local folder with sub-folders to sync with a File Management virtual library.
 
First run will upload and update all files and create a lastRunTime.json file for reference of last run.
On the next run only files that the update date is larger than the last run time of the application will be uploaded/updated
Config.ini file sample:
[DEFAULT]

# Sisense URL
host = https://test.sisense.com

# Path to store files on target machine
remoteLocation= data/Test

# Path to folder or file which should be transferred 
# If folder is specifeed, all subfolders will be also proccessed
path = C:\Users\Documents\Test\

# Sisense API token
token = Bearer TOKEN


# Script will store last modified time for each processed file. This will allow it to upload only modified files on next executions
lastRunFilename = lastRunTime.json
Droppy.py file sample:

Version >= L2021.5

import uuid
import requests
import io
import json
import os
import time
from datetime import datetime
import configparser
config = configparser.ConfigParser()
config.read('config.ini')
lastRunFilename = config.get('DEFAULT','lastRunFilename')
host = config.get('DEFAULT','host')
remoteLocation = config.get('DEFAULT','remoteLocation')
path = config.get('DEFAULT','path')
token = config.get('DEFAULT','token')
# Cut slashes at the end of paths if they are exist
if path[-1] == '\\':
 path = path[:-1]
if remoteLocation[-1] == '/':
 remoteLocation = remoteLocation[:-1]
# Function to compare stored and file last modified time
def compareModificationTime(filePath):
 if (filePath in lastRunTime and os.path.getmtime(filePath)>int(lastRunTime.get(filePath))) or (filePath not in lastRunTime):
  return True
 else:
  return False
# Function to upload file to Droppy via Sisense API
def uploadFile (filesNames, folderPath):
 def get_auth(token):
  headers = {
  'Authorization': token,
  }
  x_auth = requests.post(f'{host}/app/explore/api/login', headers=headers)
  if x_auth.status_code==200:
   return x_auth.text
  else:
   print ('Cannot get x-auth token. Check API token validity')
   return False
  
 # # SERVICE FUNCTION
 # # Do NOT modify
 x_auth = get_auth(token)
 if os.path.isfile(path):
  globalFolderPath = os.path.dirname(path)
 else:
  globalFolderPath = path
 if folderPath != globalFolderPath:
  remotePath = remoteLocation + folderPath.replace(globalFolderPath,'')
 else:
  remotePath = remoteLocation
 remotePath = remotePath.replace('\\','/')
 files = []
 header = {'Authorization': token, 'x-auth': x_auth,}
 notSentFiles = []
 for filename in filesNames:
  filePath = '%s\\%s'%(folderPath, filename)
  if compareModificationTime(filePath):
   files.append(filePath)
   lastRunTime [filePath] = int(time.time())
  else:
   notSentFiles.append(filePath)
 if files:
  for file in files:
   with open(file,'rb') as ff:
    file=os.path.basename(file)
    r = requests.post(f'{host}/app/explore/api/resources/{remotePath}/{file}?override=true', headers=header,data=ff)
    print(remotePath+'/'+file, r.status_code, r.reason)
 return notSentFiles
try:
 f = open(lastRunFilename, "r")
 timestamp = f.read()
 lastRunTime = json.loads(timestamp)
except:
 lastRunTime = {}
notSentFiles=[]
if ( os.path.isdir(path)):
 for root, subdirs, files in os.walk(path):
  if files:
   notSentFiles += uploadFile (files, root)
   time.sleep(0.1)
elif ( os.path.isfile(path)):
 notSentFiles += uploadFile ([os.path.basename(path)], path.rsplit('\\', 1)[0])
 
elif not os.path.exists(path):
 print ("Specified path doesn't exist")
if notSentFiles:
 print ('These files were not uploaded because they were not modified:')
 for file in notSentFiles:
  print (file)
with open(lastRunFilename, 'w') as f:
    json.dump(lastRunTime, f)
