How to get credentials

Input the API_Key and API_Secret when you create a connection for the connector.

Get started with the connector

Take a cloud flow as a example:

  1. Upload the template and json files to your OneDrive or SharePoint site.

  2. Get template and json file content by other connectors.

  3. Create an publish action from "WenDocs Linker", input parameters as the below:

    • "docName", give a string value to name this template file.
    • "documentTemplateData", use base64() expression to encode your template file content.
    • "jsonData", use the json file content.
    • "logLevel", input one of publish log levels: "DEBUG, ERROR, WARNING, INFO".
    • "language", input one of publish log language code: "en, zh".
    • "country", input one of publish country code: "US, CN".
    • "clientType", input "API Service".
  4. Get the published document in the next action, use base64ToBinary() expression to decode the "document" item in the outputs of the publish action. It is the binary data of output files.

Known Limitations

Publish API call is limited by the total numbers and expire date in your subscription.

Common errors and remedies

  • Working with "Get file content" and "Get file content using path" actions of OneDrive

    Please use the "outputs()" expression to get the "content" item from the output body returned by "Get file content" and "Get file content using path" actions. OneDrive will use base64 to encode the file content, so if you read a json file from OneDrive, you need to use "decodeBase64()" expression to further process "content" item, here is a sample:

    decodeBase64(outputs('Action_Name')?['body/$content'])
