We are evaulating the Documentation Services API's to support the generation of some PDF documents. The documents are not big, but tables within the documents might end up containing a few hundred rows.
2 products in the json payload: PDF merging time is 23 seconds
100 products in the json payload: PDF merging time 49 seconds
500 products in the json payload: Operation times out after ~ 5 minutes.
It is important to note that the generated PDF files are not particularly big (under 1Mb). nor is the json payload (under 250Kb). The issue seems to be related to rendering a high number of table rows.
We would appreciate to know if there is a workaround to avoid the long processing times/timeouts,
