Firebase Storage upload files

Upload file\(s\) to Firebase Storage in the given upload path\(s\)

Upload file(s) to Firebase Storage in the given upload path(s).

This flow function takes in a list of file objects - the file objects contain the upload path.

The first output is triggered if all of the files were uploaded successfully.

The second output is triggered if at least 1 of many files fail to upload.

The third output is triggered if all of the file uploads fail.

Note: Firebase needs to be initialized before this flow function can be used. Also, if access to the Firebase Storage resource is restricted make sure user is authenticated and has the required permissions to access it.
