Nuxeo REST API - Blob.ConcatenatePDFs - 500 Internal Server Error [SOLVED]

Hi,

I want to merges blobs but when I try `nuxeoClient.operation('Blob.ConcatenatePDFs') .params({ filename: fileName }) .input(blobList) .execute()` , I get {“entity-type”:“exception”,“code”:“org.nuxeo.ecm.automation.InvalidChainException”,“status”:500,“message”:“Failed to invoke operation: Blob.ConcatenatePDFs”} ? And in nuxeo server side I have :

****** chain ******
Name: Blob.ConcatenatePDFs
Exception: InvalidChainException
Caught error: Cannot find any valid path in operation chain - no method found for operation 'Blob.ConcatenatePDFs' and for first input type 'java.util.ArrayList'

According with http://explorer.nuxeo.com/nuxeo/site/distribution/Nuxeo%20DM-8.3/viewOperation/Blob.ConcatenatePDFs, We don't need Document path to use this OP ? blobList is enough ?

Must I update my nuxeo platform to have Blob.ConcatenatePDFs Operation in REST API ?

Thanks for your helps

Hi, What version of the JS client do you use? What version of Nuxeo? What's in the blobList variable?

Hi Thomas,

Here is my CustomConcatenatePDFs from studio (cf : [Capture d’écran 2018-01-18 à 10.11.21.png])

nuxeoClient.operation('CustomConcatenatePDFs')    
.params({        
filename : fileName,        
url : pdfUri    })    
.input(docs) //List of doc to have automatic loop
.execute()

but when I get ressult client side I always have blob ([Capture d’écran 2018-01-18 à 10.11.01 (2).png]) with no stream and name ? MergedPdf : { type : 'text/plain', size : 13284832} It supposed to be a pdf file ?

thanks

Hi Thomas,

I solved my issue by creating a customScript server side in studio though automation chains and it works fine.

Thanks a lot

Hi Thomas,

If I use Automation scripting to do my merge operation server side, It will works ? It will return readable file (blob) in client side ?

Thanks

You can't use Blob JSON definition from a JSON document properties as input of an operation, Nuxeo won't be able to decode it.

For your use case, I would create a custom chain CustomConcatenatePDFs such as:

- Document.GetBlob: {}
- Blob.ConcatenatePDFs: {}

And then call it through:

nuxeoClient.operation('CustomConcatenatePDFs')
  .input(doc) // or just the document id/path if you don't event need to fetch the wole document
  .params({ xpath: 'file:content', filename: fileName })
  .execute()

This way, everything will be done server side: the first operation will retrieve the Blob at file:content from the given document as input and pass it to the Blob.ConcatenatePDFs operatrion as input.

Hi Thomas,

So I create a custom chain to get my Blob, then a I do an iteration of it to have blob list and then call Blob.ConcatenatesPDFs OP to get Merged Blob PDF?

I go to try It.

Thanks

Why doing an iteration? On your example let file :Blob = doc.properties['file:content']; it will be only one blob, always.

Ok, I change my mind and do something clean but it merge the same file twice or more ?

I Thomas,

I use latest version of JS client (3.4.1), nuxeo version 8.10 and my BlobList (blob) look like

let  file :Blob  = doc.properties['file:content'];

such as

blob : {data : "[https://server/nuxeo/nxfile/default/2c19d2f0-212e-4f84-9c56-f61c497e9ff9/file:content/CDE-2018-000021%20DEVIS%20MANUEL%20HAVAS.docx](https://server/nuxeo/nxfile/default/2c19d2f0-212e-4f84-9c56-f61c497e9ff9/file:content/CDE-2018-000021%20DEVIS%20MANUEL%20HAVAS.docx "https://server/nuxeo/nxfile/default/2c19d2f0-212e-4f84-9c56-f61c497e9ff9/file:content/CDE-2018-000021%20DEVIS%20MANUEL%20HAVAS.docx")"
digest : "c83dc99ad65f21c5095e2a64965e977f"
digestAlgorithm : "MD5"

"mime-type" : "application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document"
name : "CDE-2018-000021 DEVIS MANUEL HAVAS.docx"}

I tried doc.getBlobs() but I have blob : { type : application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document, size : 13273}, that's all.

But I always have

2018-01-16 14:04:25,476 WARN  [http-bio-X.X.X.X-8443-exec-88] [org.nuxeo.ecm.webengine.app.WebEngineExceptionMapper] Exception in JAX-RS processing
