Hi there,

I am using graph api on my server to convert from msoffice file to pdf file.

Converting a typical docx file to a pdf file works fine.

But even though it's less than 1MB in size, docx files with math symbols don't work

The using api is as follow:

https://graph.microsoft.com/v1.0/users({my ID})/drive/items/{fileId}/content?format=pdf

The error response is as follow:

"error": {
"code": "generalException",
"message": "Error from Office Service. Url=https://wordcs.officeapps.live.com/document/export/pdf HttpCode=InternalServerError cert=subject:;thumbprint: ResponseHeaders=X-ErrorCode: WordConversionTimedOut\r\nX-ClientCorrelationId: b60e4e7c-94b5-4203-8371-920d8f2d53c5\r\nX-ServiceCorrelationId: b60e4e7c-94b5-4203-8371-920d8f2d53c5\r\nX-ErrorCategory: Fatal\r\nX-IsRetriable: False\r\nX-ConversionTimeInMs: 28046.3516\r\nX-FileDownloadTimeInMs: 281.2552\r\nCache-Control: private\r\nDate: Tue, 19 Apr 2022 07:23:25 GMT\r\nServer: Microsoft-IIS/10.0\r\nX-AspNet-Version: 4.0.30319\r\nX-Powered-By: ASP.NET\r\n",

}
}

    Hi @박 준혁 ,

    Based on my test with driveitem-get-content-format, it works fine see my test result.

    GET /drive/items/{item-id}/content?format={format}  
    

    Also, the observations on the logs indicate, the error status code [302] generalException and the Graph API returned the response from the word online workload must have timed-out to convert the file.

    • Try with increasing the request time for the request
