Having trouble uploading files to google cloud storage (firebase storage)

I am trying to upload a file to Google Cloud Storage (Firebase Storage) and the file is uploading, but it is not the full file. I appreciate the help!

I have a file button upload:

Which calls my query:

Here is the data shown in the preview (which all looks right):

However, after the upload completes, it shows in Google Cloud Storage as only 15B and is not the full size. When opening it, it’s just a small image but not the file I uploaded.

Most of the googling suggests using a javascript file input stream to stream it to the google cloud storage bucket but that doesnt seem possible from what I understand through retool.

I am using the query work around mentioned in: Uploading files fails with the new components - #12 by jSims

error in upload data must be value only, not all data
