Displaying generated documents internally on demand

Your internal users can view generated documents in the following three ways:

First, they can open the document in the Inkit web app by clicking Documents in the left sidebar and then double-clicking the document they want:

Next, you can stream the document to them by sending them a link to the document in the following format:


[DocID] is the ID of the document you want to view.


Note: For an internal user to view a streamed document, you must add them as a user.

Finally, you can make the following API call in your internal application:

# Import the Inkit Python package
import inkit
from inkit.exceptions import InkitResponseException

# Replace the string below with your API key
inkit.api_token = "ENTER YOUR API KEY"

   # Specify the ID of the document
   # Get a generated PDF document
   resp = inkit.Document.download(doc_id)
except InkitResponseException as err:
   # Print any error
// Import the Inkit Node.js package
const Inkit = require("inkit");

// Replace the string below with your API key
Inkit.apiToken = "ENTER YOUR API KEY";

// Call PDF download

// Download a PDF document
async function downloadDocument() {
    try {
        const result = await Inkit.Document.download('ENTER YOUR DOCUMENT ID');
        // Print the JSON response of the API call
        console.log(JSON.stringify(result.data, null, 3));
    } catch (error) {
        // Print any error
        console.error(error.response.status, error.response.statusText);
curl --request GET \
     --url https://api.inkit.com/v1/download/ENTER_YOUR_DOCUMENT_ID \
     --header 'X-Inkit-API-Token: ENTER YOUR API KEY' \
     --header 'accept: application/pdf'

After executing the above code, you will have the raw contents of the generated document, which you can then display in your application using a PDF viewer of your choice.
