hash_mismatch error

Question: What does the hash_mismatch error response mean?


When you upload documents from a URL, PSPDFKit Document Engine calculates SHA256 hash of its contents and stores it in the database. Since the file is stored in your infrastructure, PSPDFKit Document Engine fetches it when necessary, e.g. in order to render it for viewing. When the fetched document’s SHA256 doesn’t match the hash that was stored on upload, a hash_mismatch error is returned.

To prevent this error, you must make sure that the URL you provided on upload always returns the exact same file.
