Problem Statement

This is a demo to show integration with Joget and ABBYY. In this demo, we will be performing the following steps with the reference to the documentation

Process Flow / Integration Points

  1. Upload a file from Joget to ABBYY using ABBYY's "processImage" method.
  2. Perform a call from Joget to ABBYY using ABBYY's "getTaskStatus" method to retrieve the task status of the previous call.
  3. Perform a call from Joget to ABBYY to retrieve the processed file, using path retrieved in the previous step. This is the result of processImage in step 1.

    - ABBYY Application ID (example: c80764b7-94f4-aaaa),
    - ABBYY Application Password (example: Rad#sfewfwc/5), and

    The parameters can be found in the dashboard of your account.
  2. Using the values above, we can compute the basic auth header (Authorization) value too. (example: Basic Yzg2wNzvY034aYjvc5tOTvR556m)
  3. Obtain and install the plugins listed in this article.
  4. Import the attached Joget app in this article into your copy of Joget.
  5. Navigate to App Variables and set the value into variable auth prepared in step 2.
  6. Publish the app by clicking to "Versions" on the top. Select version 1 and publish.
