We have a requirement to create a web API to get a TIFF file (from an external system (NOT from a shared location)) and attach it to an Appian case of Back office agent. How can we do that?
Even I have this requirement , Can anyone suggest a solution for this.
Appian 19.3 supports getting files from external systems using Web API
Yeah the type of file doesn't matter - you can set up a Web API that accepts a file and starts a process to associate the file with a case or other data. Here's a tutorial that describes how to set this up: https://docs.appian.com/suite/help/latest/passing-a-web-api-document-into-a-process-model.html
Thanks for the Quick response Peter.
My requirement is to display tiff file in Appian Interface, document(tiff file ) is in filenet.
I want to read the tiff file and display the file in UI.

Do you get any specific error when trying this?
I am looking for the approach to achieve this in Appian ?
Images can be displayed in a!imageField using a!documentImage. I tried briefly with a .tiff file of my own, though, and it appears after a brief try that .tiff is not supported for on-form display within Appian. Thus unless you have a way to convert the image to .jpg or .png or another more common image format, my guess is this won't be possible.
