How to solve :

I know you bored from this bug, So we are here to help you! Take a deep breath and look at the explanation of your problem. We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first method because it is tested & true method that will 100% work for you.

Method 1

the blueimp.fileupload uses events that are fired via $emit to notify parent scopes:

            ].join(' '), function (e, data) {
                if ($scope.$emit(e.type, data).defaultPrevented) {

That means that you can simply add an event listener in one of the parent scope controllers, e.g.:

$scope.$on('fileuploadprocessdone', function(event, files){ 
    $.each(files, function (index, file) {
        //do what you want

You can also override the default handleResponse function in your config phase, e.g.:

angular.module('myApp', ['blueimp.fileupload']).
.config(['fileUploadProvider', function (fileUploadProvider){
    fileUploadProvider.defaults.handleResponse = function (e,data){
        var files = data.result && data.result.files;
        if (files) {
            data.scope().replace(data.files, files);
            // do what you want...
        } else if (data.errorThrown || data.textStatus === 'error') {
             data.files[0].error = data.errorThrown ||

Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
