Hello,

 

Fusion itself is not able to convert file formats, but it should be possible with Adobe PDF Services.

Create PDF document from Microsoft Office documents (Word, Excel and PowerPoint) and Image file formats.

Thanks for your input Lars.

 

I already tried that but I'm getting error The operation failed with an error. [400] [200] The input file appears to be corrupted and cannot be processed.

 

FYI, The input document format is PPTX.

You are right, I do get exactly the same error message, whereas doing the same with a word document does work successfully. Therefore I would create a support ticket.

 

The other possibility could be to use the generic http-module, but this would cost a lot of effort to set the whole thing up in terms of authorization, upload, conversion, ...

I think there is a bug in the Fusion module, as it does use the wrong media type when uploading the file to Adobe PDF Services.

 

"mediaType": "application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document"

 

For PowerPoint it should be:

"mediaType": "application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.presentationml.presentation"

Hello,

 

just a short update:

 

As I am also interested in a solution here, I created a support case and it seems that, I was right concerning the wrong mediaType.

As far as I understood the development team is working on fixing that. Perhaps it is already done, I did not try. But the ticket is still active...

Hi @sethuanand26 

 

Can you try to use the Cloud Convert module instead of PDF services.

 

Thanks,
