Reading data from PDF opened in web browser
As part of a requirement, I have to extract data from a PDF file which gets opened in the web browser.
I have a link in web app which on clicking opens a PDF in another tab in same web browser from which data is to be read. Has anyone tried this using PDF connector/reader? How can we achieve this in Pega Robotics Studio?
You will need a locally available copy of the PDF in order to try to work with it. When opening a PDF in a new tab, this should have a locally cached copy of the file. You would need to find that file and then you can try reading data from it. I really don't think there's an easy way for you to find this cached PDF. So I would suggest downloading the file from the site, then try reading it.
