How to read PDF directly in the browser


I have a larger workflow that will be navigating through a web page to extract data from several PDF files. I’ve downloaded a sample PDF to try out Read PDF Text activity and verified that it works perfectly for my usecase. However, this activity expects a file path. Is it possible to apply this or a similar acitivity to a PDF directly in the browser, without having to first download the file locally?


For PDF to read in browser you can use Screen scraping

But the best practice is to download the pdf and use the Read PDF if it is text or Read PDF OCR if it is image based PDF

Hope this may help you


That’s disappointing, but fair. Thanks for the response.
