Filemaker Server 16


I'm trying to generate PDF's on Filemaker server and then retrieve them. I can generate the files on the server but I don't know how to get them back into the database as Insert PDF From File is disabled.

My final objective is to upload pdf's to an online microservice.

 

My full process as of right now is as follows:

  1. Microservice is sent a GET request for an invoice
  2. Microservice calls a filemaker script through the xml api
  3. The filemaker script calls another `perform script on server` to generate the pdfs
  4. The sub script successfully saves the generated pdf to a file
  5. ...? How to get pdf from file back to filemaker??
  6. Send PDF back to microservice
  7. Profit
