Octect-Stream conversion

I know this is a common problem, but after days I finally have reached the end of the Merging Document Generation API (from docx to pdf with JSON fields), now using Postman (than I want to use with my database).

I obtain a octect-stream text, with 2 "Boundaries" parts. The second one I think is the final PDF.

How do you trasform the text into PDF? Do I need to exclude/delete the first part with JSON data?

And why the Base64Decode is not working with this?

Finally, how can I have more information, and decide if to buy or not Adobe services, if documentation is so poor?

The "boundaries" thing you refer to sounds like MIME-encoded multipart data. Just find a library designed to decode this into its parts. Don't guess the format, there will be complexities that the library is designed to handle.

It sounds like you are using the older REST API, I strongly urge you to try the newer one. It is far simpler. Introductory blog post:
