Tranfer PDF files within FTP server
How to read PDF files from an FTP location and upload them to another FTP location?
In other words, how can we transfer PDF files to an FTP server?
I've moved this to our main troubleshooting area for custom flows. Our export article states that the supported file types for FTP export, which doesn't include PDF. I've submitted your enhancement request to our PM team for evaluation. You can also submit enhancement requests in the Product portal when you're logged in to integrator.io, or you can add an enhancement here. Thanks so much for letting us know of this need!0
Hi Tharaka Athukorala We can certainly grab and move files within FTP server, but we only support some file types if you need to read and parse the file content. I also notice that our support team has received your question via a case and they'll be in touch to assist you.
I was about to say the same thing as Viliandy. If you do an export and chose not to parse the file you can transfer the BLOB to another FTP server. Should be pretty simple.0
Thank you for the above comments and information.
The real scenario is we need to read PDF files from an FTP location and need to upload them to another third-party system.
This is how we handle that scenario from Celigo.
1) We fetch the PDF file from an FTP server using an FTP connector
2) Then we have an import where we should push this PDF file as a base64 encoded string to a 3rd party app through their APIs. For this, we use an HTTP connector
3) We cannot figure out how to retrieve the base64 string of the imported PDF, we only get the blobKey as the input data into this import.
This is the request body that we need to pass data to the third-party system. We need to convert the read PDF file into base64 and post a request as given below.
