Create a Document from an Upload


PSPDFKit Server has been deprecated and replaced by PSPDFKit Document Engine. All PSPDFKit Server and PSPDFKit for Web Server-Backed licenses will work as before and be supported until 15 May 2024 (we will contact you about license migration). To start using Document Engine, refer to the migration guide. With Document Engine, you’ll have access to robust new capabilities (read the blog for more information).

When you create a document by upload, you send the file to PSPDFKit Server, which will manage the entire document lifecycle.

💡 Tip: If you prefer to not store files with PSPDFKit Server, you can create a document from a URL.

Your service uploads the document to PSPDFKit Server and receives a document ID back.

  1. Your service uploads the document to PSPDFKit Server, which stores the document in the asset storage and stores the metadata in PostgreSQL.

  2. Your service receives the document ID back, which it can use to reference the document later.
