Allow user to define location of assets

During a test the assets generated: logs, screenshots, video, etc could be given a file or URL location by the user.  The assets would be generated like normal but ultimately sent to the location set by the user.

Using Sauce Connect could open up the local file system/storage and requires no further work to secure assets.  I.e. once a test completes users would not need to delete or modify assets.  And users could store the assets indefinitely this way.

    This would best be accomplished by having a caching layer at Sauce Labs and an appliance model that transparently saves the files on-prem (e.g. leveraging SauceConnect) even though for the client app it looks like it's simply accessing files on disk (which is just a caching layer).  Think of consul template or cloud appliances, such as: https://cloud.netapp.com/blog/amazon-s3-as-a-file-system
