Question
Forge component by Leonardo Fernandes

Published on 14 Nov 2020

Dears,

We are using Ultimate pdf to convert html to pdf. It goes to https://storage.googleapis.com to check the chromium version while setting the local browser.

Our Information Security team is asking what exactly is being to google apis and what does apis do to set up the local browser.

Could you please provide the details? Thanks for your help.

Regards,

Zubair

Hi Zubair.

It uses that URL to download Chromium binaries. This allows the component to work without requiring any setup.

If you can't have that dependency, you're going to have to provide the binaries yourself. You can use the action SetupDefaultChromiumBrowserRevision or SetupBrowserRevision to provide the binaries without requiring a connection to any external server. You only need to do this once per environment.

Zubair, it's not possible to change that path at the moment. I might add that feature in future versions.

Dear Leonardo,

Just following up on this, if you had time to look on changing the path for this component binary files.

Thanks

Hi Zubair. The latest release has a site property that allows you to change which folder will be used to download and unpack the Chromium browser.

Zubair, you should set the TemporaryFolder site property to C:\Windows\Temp (or leave it blank since this is the default).

Let me know if that fixes your issue. If it doesn't, try using the last release, which will generate an error that includes the expected path of the executable.
