PCCIS Uploading of files

The first call in a PCCIS workflow is to the following URL:

http://localhost:18681/PCCIS/V1/ViewingSession

In this call, one of the parameters is the document source in “documentSource”. This parameter controls whether the file will be uploaded or downloaded. The default for this value is “api”, meaning the file will be uploaded. Changing this value to “http” when making that call tells the PCCIS service to download the file.

To use this, you must also specify the “externalId” in the same request. This is usually any value that should uniquely identify the file being viewed -- though this is not enforced. However, when downloading the file, this is the parameter used that tells PCCIS from where to download the file, and must be the full publicly accessible URL of the file.

You also need to specify the “documentExtension” of the file being viewed, such as “pdf”, “doc”, “tif”, and so on.

Adding these 3 values to the POST call will instruct PCCIS to download the file and begin the viewing process. This will eliminate the need for the PUT call to upload the file. All of these values, as well as other parameters for this request are documented here:http://help.accusoft.com/PCC/v8.2/HTML/webframe.html#PCCIS%20RESTful%20Web%20API.html

The Flash Viewer shows this error: Error #2032 – Streaming Error. How can I fix this?

The Flash error #2032 is a result of cross domain accessibility issues on the client (browser). This can be a result of blocking fpdownload.adobe.com (the Adobe Flash player CDN), or a VPN changing the MIME type of the crossdomain.xml file served from Adobe.

The Flash viewer requires several runtime shared libraries (RSLs) in order to run. These RSLs are cached in when used, and lower the load time and page size for returning users (or users of Flash across the Internet). These files are generally served by the Adobe CDN, but can come from elsewhere as well.

There are three options to fix this issue:

  1. Make sure that traffic from fpdownload.adobe.com is not being blocked by the client network.

  2. Check the MIME type of all crossdomain.xml files being served to the application. The correct MIME type is “text/x-cross-domain-policy”. Fix this in VPN or proxy settings.

  3. Serve the required RSLs from the server hosting the Prizm Content Connect application. The steps for this are detailed below:

Serving RSLs locally:

The Flash viewer has a failover in place, which allows it to look in the root directory of the viewer for the required RSLs. Placing them in the same folder as the FlashViewer.swf file, these files can be served to someone either blocking the Adobe CDN or incorrectly receiving the crossdomain.xml file. The below steps detail how to acquire and use those files.

  1. Download the correct Flex SDK from this URL:http://sourceforge.net/adobe/flexsdk/wiki/Downloads/.

    1. PCC 7.3 and earlier use Flex SDK v4.1.

    2. PCC 8.0 uses Flex SDK v4.1.

    3. PCC 8.1 uses Flex SDK v4.5.

  2. Unzip the file. Go to frameworks > rsls.

  3. Copy all of the .swf and .swz files from here to the same folder on the server as the FlashViewer.swf or FlashViewerAnnotation.swf file.

This should allow the files to be served locally, even without access to the Adobe CDN or crossdomain.xml files.

The documents keep opening in the default viewer and not the Prizm Connect Connect Viewer. How can I correct this issue?

You need to make sure the Client Integration setting is always turned “off” for the site. You can do this from the Central Administration on your Sharepoint server under the Authentication Providers. If not then all doc, xslx, pdf, etc. files will try to open in the local default viewer and not Prizm Content Connect.

Do I Need a Specific OS or Server Environment to use Prizm Content Connect?

There is no need to install or set up any product on the client side, as the user interface is web-based and works in any modern JavaScript enabled browser with minimum Adobe Flash 9.0 Plugin installed.
