Is there a way to use Snaplogic to split a PDF file containing may documents, into individual documents? Currently this is being done with PHP, but it would be really helpful if we could to this in Snaplogic.
One way you can do this is by using an API. I’ve used ConvertAPI, it’s pretty simple and straightforward process.
You can call this from within a snaplogic pipeline? I’m a little concerned about security of data. The PDFs I’m working with have financial information.
Yes you can. Here is a sample response:
You’ll have to configurate a REST POST snap with the generated link from ConvertAPI, add a token parameter, and you have the option to upload the file directly within the POST snap. It’s pretty useful service, but I don’t know enough about your concerns, if you decide to use it, you’ll have to make some research.
Hope this give you some idea about their security. Security Overview - ConvertAPI
