[Web Previewer] Can I use this plugin if my pdf is coming as an output from a Rest API
Forge component by Rui Mendes
Application Type
Traditional Web

I have a REST API which will provide me the output in pdf format based on the input structure we pass and I need to preview this in outsystems web application.

Can I use this plugin for my above purpose?

Hello Arnab,

Just based on my experience, and I tried quite a few different ways, I could not preview a PDF binary or text output from a REST API using this component. The component works great for the use cases it describes i.e. from the database and from a URL.

Would be interesting to see if anyone else has tried it, but just sharing my experience.

Regards,

AJ
