Contains multiple Smart Services and Functions for interacting with PDF Documents.
I fixed it! This has been stumping my team for weeks but it was as simple to use as you described. Our problem was we were still using version 1.5 of the plugin
I am trying to follow the information mentioned in the v2.2.1 Update to add images to a PDF using the Fill PDF smart service but have had no success getting the image to map to the pdf and it does not give an error. I have tried both .PNG and .JPG images with no success.
In Acrobat when creating the form template what field type and settings need to be in place to map the image correctly? In Acrobat for windows there is no Image form field type and on mac the image field appears to be simply an altered button type but following the instructions does not add the image to the form!
I know my smart node is correct because passing a text pdffield as well will populate correctly but passing the image field and document id has no effect. Please help clarify what I could be missing.
MatD61 , can you check the application logs and see if there are more details? Also, is the pauseonerror flag set to true or false? If its true can you change it to false and then see if you get more error details either in process or in logs? Like Sylvain Furt asked in earlier comments please share all the details either with me (email@example.com) or with Sylvain, so we can try to reproduce this issue in-house.
I am assuming you are already using the latest version of the plug-in, if not please update the latest and give it a try.
I also have the same issue in 18.4 when using the Convert PDF to Image smart service.
bundleName for SmartServiceException, builder.smartServiceClass=class com.appiancorp.ps.pdftools.AbstractPDFDocumentGeneration
We are facing the same issue in our 18.2 :
Any help would be appreciated.
@janv - I would like to reproduce this error locally so I can take a deeper look. Is it possible for you to share with me the different PDFs that you are trying to merge together?
You can send them directly to my email address at firstname.lastname@example.org
could you please paste the entire error message and stack trace? It was the entire error message. I don't have access to the stack trace.
Could you also provide the following information?
- when is the error happening? During deployment of the plugin? During execution? During execution of the merge pdf action.
- what is the language and locale of the appian instance running the plugin? English

Hi, we're facing the same error on version 18.3:
Any updates on this yet?
We're getting issues with the Plugin. The error is:
bundleName for SmartServiceException, builder.smartServiceClass=class
The platform version is 18.2. Let us know what would fix this, coz it's affecting also production apps that uses this.
Hi , We are facing issue with the plugin after upgrade to 18.3. Is this not supported ?
Hi timothym906 , the issue may be environment-specific. However, please see if this KB article helps: community.appian.com/.../kb-1097-illegal-attempt-to-change-the-data-type-for-smart-service-x-x-x-input-or-output-named-name-error-thrown-during-plugin-deployment.
Additionally, you may want to post in Discussions as your question will have the most visibility there!
