Select a file from the beginning of a flow

Post by bkromer » Fri Jul 17, 2020 1:16 pm

Hello,

I have this flow:

Bildschirmfoto 2020-07-17 um 13.07.23.png (41.24 KiB) Viewed 2793 times
In the Flow I get a PDF-File from Email convert it to text search with regex in the text.

When I work with the File i always use File.read(job.getPath(), 'UTF-8'); wich gives me the incoming file wich is the txt-File.
Now I also need the PDF from the beginning, how can I select this?

I want to upload it to an API with theHTTP.setAttachedFile(job.getPath() , filename); ...

Thanks in Advance for your Help! :)

You have to branch out before the text conversion so you get a copy of the PDF. Then you can upload that one.

The PDF you convert to text is sent to null after the conversion.

okay, I have this PDF ARCHIV 48h trashcan in there, where all the incoming PDF are archived for 48 hours.
Is there a way to select the belonging PDF-file in the script, some job.get... function or similar?

Branch of to one folder before the pdfToolbox element and then from that folder back to the folder before the script, then both the PDf and the TXT will be going in to the script. In the script you have to pick up both the PDF and the TXT file.

Hmmm... :|
But I run my script for every file which means It would handle the PDF and TXT file separately. So I will end up with 2 new entries in my database.

Code: Select all

function jobArrived( s : Switch, job : Job )
{
	var pdf =  File.read( job.getPath(), "UTF-8" );// PDF Text einlesen
		function getSuppliers(){
		var theHTTP = new HTTP( HTTP.SSL );
		theHTTP.authScheme = HTTP.ProprietaryAuth;
		theHTTP.addHeader( "Authorization", "Bearer asdasdasdasd");
		theHTTP.url = "https://api.ninoxdb.de/v1/teams/asdadsasd/databases/asdasd/tables/ASDDDrecords?perPage=9999"; 
		theHTTP.get();
		while (!theHTTP.waitForFinished(3)) {
			job.log(1, 'API CALL IN PROGRESS!');
		}
	
		if (theHTTP.finishedStatus == HTTP.Ok && theHTTP.statusCode == 200) {
			job.log(1, 'getSuppliers - API CALL successfull RESPONSE: ' +theHTTP.statusCode ); // theHTTP.getServerResponse().toString('UTF-8')
			job.log(1,"FULL RESPONSE GET SUPPLIERS: "+theHTTP.getServerResponse().toString('UTF-8'))
			supplierJson = JSON.parse(theHTTP.getServerResponse().toString('UTF-8'));
			
			// job.log( 1, JSON.stringify( jsonReturn[0]['fields']['Bestellungen'] ));
			
			// job.log(1,jsonReturn[0]['fields']['Name oder Firma']);
			
		} else {
			job.log(
				3,
				'API CALL Failed:  ' +
					theHTTP.getServerResponse().toString('UTF-8') +
					'  Status Code: ' +
					theHTTP.statusCode.toString('UTF-8')
			);
		}
		return supplierJson
	}	
	function getCompany( supplierJson, fileAsText ){
		var newSupplierJson = [];
		for ( var j=0; j< supplierJson.length; j++ ){
				if ( "UST ID" in supplierJson[j]['fields'] ){
					newSupplierJson.push(supplierJson[j]);
				}
		}
		//File.write("C:\\Users\\Administrator.BECHTELDRUCK\\Nextcloud\\Documents\\coding\\SwitchScripts\\RECHNUNGSEINGANG\\RECHNUNGEN AUSLESEN TEST\\TXT LOWER ARCHIV\\"+job.getName(), pdfLower, 'UTF-8'); // AUCH ALS LOWER TEXT ABSPEICHERN!
		// job.log(1,"länge json: "+supplierJson.length);
		supplierId = 0;
		 for (var i=0; i< newSupplierJson.length; i++){
			var supplierUSTID = newSupplierJson[i]['fields']['UST ID'];
			var regex = "("+supplierUSTID+")";
			var pattern = new RegExp( regex );
			pattern.global = true; 
			pattern.ignoreCase = true;
			//job.log(1,i);
			var matched = pdf.match(pattern);
				if (matched){
					job.log(1,"Pattern found: "+supplierUSTID+" Name: "+ newSupplierJson[i]['fields']['Name oder Firma'] );
					job.setPrivateData("pdSupplierUSTID", supplierUSTID );	
					job.log(1,"matches: "+matched );
					job.log(1, JSON.stringify( newSupplierJson[i] ) );
					supplierId = newSupplierJson[i]['id'];
				}
			}
			job.sendToSingle( job.getPath() );
		return supplierId	
};
	function upload2Ninox(supplierId){
	name = job.getName();
	prefix = job.getUniqueNamePrefix();
	filename = name.replace(prefix,"");

Well can't you let the first file create the record and the second update that record?

Branch of to one folder before the pdfToolbox element and then from that folder back to the folder before the script, then both the PDf and the TXT will be going in to the script. In the script you have to pick up both the PDF and the TXT file.
How can I select the textfile and the pdf file in the same script and handle them differently?
Can I refer to the textfile when its in a different folder?

One way is to embed the text file or the PDF as an Opaque dataset in the other file and in the script access that dataset. It will then be saved as a temp file that you can read from the script.

For Example I have this flow where I want to opaque pickup a *.json file in a *.pdf file but it stucks before the pickup flow element.
Why is that? :?:

Do both files have the same name?

Sorry I didn't see that.

But that is your problem. For the Pickup tools to work with the setting "Metadaten neben Asset" both files have to have the same name.

So you have to find a way to rename the payload file.

Is it not enough to rename one of the files? Image
They still have their unique filename for a second.

You renamed the payload file and also changed the extension. The filename before the extension must be alike but different extensions. The filetype you want to embed as an opaque datatype i specified in the properties.

You you need two files as this: myfilename.pdf and myfilename.json
