https://docs.appian.com/suite/help/23.3/Product_Release_History.html18.1 is not supported any more
hi, are you still on 18.1. in year 2023 ?
In the 23.2 release, Appian introduced modernized file management APIs that offer a cleaner abstraction layer for easier file handling within Appian. We simultaneously announced that we are deprecating some older APIs. We are aware of the utilization of deprecated APIs within some AppMarket plug-ins that work with documents. As part of our commitment to ensuring compatibility, we anticipate all Appian-authored plug-ins currently using deprecated APIs to be updated for API compatibility by the 24.1 General Availability (GA) release. We also proactively work with Partner plug-in authors to ensure all AppMarket plug-ins have optimal performance and functionality. If you have any questions or require AppMarket assistance, please don't hesitate to reach out by sending an email to email@example.com.
as we will have a setup with this plugin as key peace, i raised it with some appian folks :)
Yes, we came across the same issue. We are looking to upgrade our platform and it would be great if we can get an update on when the new version of the plugin will be available that doesn't reference the deprecated APIs.
It is planned a new version for this plugin?The heath check report is saying that is using deprecated API's.In a future this can be a problem. "PDF Tools (pdftools) references deprecated Appian APIs [deprecated] com.appiancorp.suiteapi.content.ContentOutputStream.close() [deprecated] com.appiancorp.suiteapi.content.ContentOutputStream.getContentId() [deprecated] com.appiancorp.suiteapi.content.ContentService.getInternalFilename(java.lang.Long) [deprecated] com.appiancorp.suiteapi.content.ContentService.upload(com.appiancorp.suiteapi.knowledge.Document, java.lang.Integer)"
I was having issues parsing a pdf.
The pdf contains data in a table format with some blank data cells. When using getpdftext(), the delimiter between 2 adjacent cells and between 2 cells with a missing cell value in between is the same (<space>). Because of this, I'm unable to map the cell data with the correct column header.
Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!
