Hi, I have a document in base64 like ‘data:application/pdf;base64,{base64string}’ and I need it to use it in File parameter for creating a document in signaturit. I end up having a 400 bad request and signaturit says ‘wrong document list’ cause its application/octet-stream. Is any way around for this kind of stuff? Any help? Thank you

Hi @SSCC atsistemas 

Good question.

Can you post screenshots with the error and how your Zap steps are configured?

Hi @Troy Tessalone 


The trigger is just receiving the data for the signature request, the second step is to treat the message received from the SNS, the third step is to make an API Request to get the pdf in base 64 and the fourth step is the screenshot and its where I’m trying to manage the base64 to actually send it to the fifth step.



And this is the signaturit error from the API. I think the main error is the name of the document or de type, if you see the screenshot it says “application/octet-stream” and the name is the full text with “.txt” at the end, so I dont know how to proceed with this, I’d appreciate any help :)

The File field expects file objects or a file link, which is a public direct download url.
