Is is possible to create an integration that creates a PDF and sends that PDF to another system via REST web service call?

Just commenting on this one to follow the post as this would also be very useful for us also..

We have produced PDF's and transferred them to another system via FTP by using a PDF printer (with statically set file path and filename structure inside the PDF printer settings... i think we use PDF2GO) and then the Move Document function inside the integration builder. this works really well.

Aside from running a third party or custom script after the document is created i'm not sure how you would achieve this.

Would the transfer have to happen instantly? if not then you could write some custom code to transfer any created PDF's in a particular folder and transfer them periodically and run this from task scheduler. the code itself would be out of my abilities but there's nothing a bit of googling can't change!

I'm interested to see what you come up with if you wouldn't mind keeping us updated :)

Hi Seb,

 

My fallback option is a two-step process like you described using a script that polls for new files in created in a specific directory. Not as clean but will work with the added benefit of having a copy of the PDF for re-try should the second step fail for any reason. Real-time is not required, a one to two minute polling interval would be OK.
