PDF Generator API

Version: 3.1.1

Use this API in your project

Integrate third-party APIs faster by using "PDF Generator API" ready-to-use mock sample. Mocking this API will allow you to start working in no time. No more accounts to create, API keys to provision, accesses to configure, unplanned downtime, just work.
Improve your integration tests by mocking third-party APIs and cover more edge cases: slow response time, random failures, etc.


PDF Generator API allows you easily generate transactional PDF documents and reduce the development and support costs by enabling your users to create and manage their document templates using a browser-based drag-and-drop document editor.
The PDF Generator API features a web API architecture, allowing you to code in the language of your choice. This API supports the JSON media type, and uses UTF-8 character encoding.
You can find our previous API documentation page with references to Simple and Signature authentication here.

Frequently asked questions and answers
Organization is a group of workspaces owned by your account.
Workspace contains templates. Each workspace has access to their own templates and organization default templates.
Master Workspace
Master Workspace is the main/default workspace of your Organization. The Master Workspace identifier is the email you signed up with.
Default Template
Default template is a template that is available for all workspaces by default. You can set the template access type under Page Setup. If template has "Organization" access then your users can use them from the "New" menu in the Editor.
Data Field
Data Field is a placeholder for the specific data in your JSON data set. In this example JSON you can access the buyer name using Data Field {paymentDetails::buyerName}. The separator between depth levels is :: (two colons). When designing the template you don’t have to know every Data Field, our editor automatically extracts all the available fields from your data set and provides an easy way to insert them into the template.
Testing with JWTs
You can create a temporary token in Account Settings page after you login to PDF Generator API. The generated token uses your email address as the subject (sub) value and is valid for 5 minutes.
You can also use to generate test tokens for your API calls. These test tokens should never be used in production applications.
