UiPath Plugin Key Features

UiPath plugin for PDF.co covers mostly used API endpoints from PDF.co and provides in native activity format. This plugin also has an activity to directly consume any pdf.co API endpoint by directly passing endpoint URL and input data, so it’s truly extensible. The following are the activities this plugin provides.

PDF.co Scope

This is the main placeholder/scope activity. All activities for this plugin should be added under this activity. The main purpose of this activity is to handle the authentication to the PDF.co services. You should setup PDF.co API key in this scope before using other endpoints and functions. You can get your API key here.

PDF to Text

This activity converts the PDF file format to text format. Like all type converters from PDF, this activity has built-in OCR with support to multiple languages hence works very well with scanned PDF documents. Read the PDF to Text in UiPath tutorial here

PDF to JSON

As the name suggests this activity converts PDF to JSON. Output JSON is a kind of virtual table with a key-value pair. Generated JSON is really verbose and contains other useful information like font, page number, the color of text, text position in the page, etc. Read the PDF to JSON in the UiPath tutorial here.

PDF to CSV

Convert PDF to CSV file. Like all PDF converters provided, it works very well with large files. We can also configure this to group line items. Read the PDF to JSON in the UiPath tutorial here.

PDF to XML

This activity converts PDF to XML with smooth and accurate data processing and fast PDF to XML conversion. Read the PDF to JSON in the UiPath tutorial here.

PDF Split

Splits PDF into multiple files. This activity is configurable in a way that we can control how many pages splits to have and for each PDF part generated which page numbers to be contained. Read the PDF to JSON in the UiPath tutorial here.

PDF Merger

Merges any amount of input PDF documents to one PDF. This activity is really fast, accurate, and easy to configure. Read the PDF to JSON in the UiPath tutorial here.

PDF Filler

The main purpose of this activity is to add text or images to the existing PDF file. You can fill out existing PDF forms and documents and create new fillable PDF forms with this action. Read the PDF to JSON in the UiPath tutorial here. You can also add text and images to PDF using the same module.

PDF.co File Upload

Uploads temporary PDF files into PDF.co. Temporary files are stored for 1 hour by default and then auto-removed. This activity is very useful when working with PDF.co API activity where the passing of files is sometimes necessary. Read the PDF to JSON in the UiPath tutorial here.

PDF.co API Call

The main goal of this activity is to directly consume PDF.co API for customized solutions. We can choose from hundreds of PDF.co APIs. Read the PDF to JSON in the UiPath tutorial here or explore the list of all available API endpoints here.
