ConversionAPI still returns code -1

Post by jabko87 » Wed Aug 15, 2018 2:26 pm

I am trying to call my OpenOffice conversion API with following data:

Code: Select all

{
    "async": false,
    "filetype": "docx",
    "key": "Khirz6zgfTPdfd7",
    "outputtype": "pdf",
    "title": "Example Document Title.docx",
    "url": "https://calibre-ebook.com/downloads/demos/demo.docx"
}
I am not certain about key property value, I used Khirz6zgfTPdfd7 which is also used in their example on https://api.onlyoffice.com/editors/conversionapi ; the document is also not the one stored on docserver.

The response I retrieve is:

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?><FileResult><Error>-1</Error></FileResult>
when means Unknown error.

I suppose the problem might be either in key or document URL. Can I use document that is not stored on docserver and how to generate the key properly?

Or do you think I miss something else?

Hello jabko87!
Can I use document that is not stored on docserver and how to generate the key properly?
The key of the document must be generated every time when this document is edited. Document server is not a storage for documents, your documents should be stored at another place with an accessible URL. You should generate that key for a document.
