Generic HTTPS

Use the Generic HTTPS connector to deliver scanned files to a specific HTTPS endpoint for custom post-processing. The endpoint must be able to handle the predefined request format.

Connector configuration

  • Endpoint URL – HTTPS endpoint URL where the scanned documents should be sent (for example, Azure function URL).
  • Request properties (optional) – properties in the name-value pair propagated to the Endpoint URL.

Each custom request property will be sent to the endpoint URL as a separate part in a single multipart/form-data request. The property name is automatically prepended with "custom_" prefix to avoid collisions with existing properties. For example, "MyProperty=1234" will be sent as "custom_MyProperty=1234" parameter.

Request

The scanned job files are sent all together in a single multipart/form-data request. The request also includes all scan parameters, which are added dynamically.

Example request

A request with one variable %userEmail% and one document. In a production environment, the request would contain all the scan metadata, all available user inputs, and all files. The boundary is randomly generated with each request.
