Getting started with the Conversion Service
Try out the API in Postman
Pdftools lets you generate API requests for all our endpoints via our Postman collection.
Postman is a free-to-use visual editing tool for building and testing APIs. Postman lets you easily edit API requests, view header information, and much more.
Save the Conversion Service Postman collection as a JSON file.
Open the Postman API Client, select the Collections view, and click Import.
Drag the downloaded collection JSON file to the Import window.
Click on 4-Heights® Conversion Service in the Collections view.
Using the Conversion Service collection
When you use the Conversion Service Postman collection for the first time. here's the steps to proceed:
1. Specify the base URL
Ensure the baseURL in your collection variables specifies the host where your Conversion Service runs.
2. Get a list of the available workflows
Try out a simple request such as a list of the available workflows. This will help give you an overview of the available workflows in the Conversion Service, so you can then use one as an input parameter when you create a new job.
3. Process a file
Process your first file. For more information about the job processing sequence, refer to the API usage section in the developer guide.
