PDF Document Viewer


Users desire the capability to view documents embedded within the application while having access to zoom, pagination, and download functionalities. In contrast to the built-in Appian PDF viewer that uses iframes, this plugin eliminates the need to store the file within Appian and doesn't rely on iframes. Furthermore, additional authentication methods have been incorporated to enable secure document streaming.

Key Features & Functionality


  • URL based document viewer (no storage within Appian)
  • HTTP method & headers configuration
  • Zoom, pagination and download functionalities within the viewer
