BluePrism Plugin Key Features

Blue Prism plugin for PDF.co is basically Web API configurations in Blue Prism for most used PDF.co endpoints. Blue Prism is truly expandable such as Web API or SOAP-based Web Services can be configured along with all action with input and output types. These configured actions can be used as Business Objects when creating any process.

The following are the actions configured by the PDF.co extension for Blue Prism. We can extend this to add any PDF.co API endpoint also.

PDF to Text

This action converts PDF file format to text. We can also convert the whole PDF file or just a particular region of PDF to text format. It has built-in OCR with support to multiple languages, hence works smoothly with scanned PDF also. Learn more about PDF to text conversion in this guide.


As the name suggests this action converts PDF to JSON. The final output text is a kind of virtual table. This action generates output JSON with each text group as a different value.


Converts PDF to CSV format. We can either convert the whole PDF file to CSV or particular pages to CSV file format. We can also further fine-tune extraction by providing a region within the PDF page also. Like all PDF converters provided this works very well with large files. Check out this guide to convert PDF to CSV format.


This action converts PDF data to an XML file format. Like all other data conversions from PDF provided, we also have options for line-group output items.

PDF Split

This action splits PDF into multiple files. This is a very common function we often need with PDF, and a real-time saver when it is provided with an automation tool. This action is very generic in terms of page splits we want to configure. Refer to this tutorial to find out more.

PDF Merger

As the name suggests this action merges multiple PDF documents into one PDF. This is a very useful automation feature when working with PDF. Here’s a step-by-step tutorial on how this activity can be done.

PDF Add Text and Images to PDF

The main purpose of this action is to add text or images to the existing PDF file. We can also add redirect links to added images or text annotations. With this action, you can fill out existing PDF forms and documents. See how you can do it in this tutorial.

Fill PDF Forms
