We can install WebViewer in Appian from the AppMarket, by leveraging the Component Plugin and the Connected Systems Plugin. The component plugin parameters allow for no code and low code configuration of WebViewer, without writing a single line of code whilst still accessing WebViewer's powerful features.
You can follow steps outlined in our Get Started section here . You can use an unlimited trial whilst evaluating our product. Once you have your license key, you can just pass it to the component plugin
key parameter to remove the watermark.
You can request an Apryse license using our Contact Sales Form.
Yes, Apryse WebViewer is safe to use with sensitive data and files stored in Appian. The plugins are hosted within Appian and integrate into Appian's security architecture without disruption, providing you with the same level of security you know from Appian. None of your Appian data or files ever leave your Appian environment, since all data transfered is handled by the Appian Connected System and document processing occurs in the browser.
Also, Appian Solution Engineering worked with us to develop this component. Currently, it is the only complete Document SDK approved by Appian on the AppMarket.
Yes, it is highly scalable. Since Apryse WebViewer runs client-side in the user's browser, document processing is not performed on Appian servers. Therefore, you can add as many users as needed without performance impacts, since document processing occurs on each users machine without requiring resources from Appian's back-end.
You can use the
disabledElements parameters (list of text) to add or remove UI elements. To find the name of an element, right click on it (f.e. right click on a button) > then select
Inspect element - this will open your browser console with the html structure of the current page. Look for the
data-element html attribute and pass it to one of the above parameters. You can review the steps in this video here.
This is a common AEC (Architectural Engineering and Construction) use case. Enable
enableMeasurement by setting it to true. From the ribbon drop-down in the top center of WebViewer, select
Measure and use the measurement tools. You can view some examples how to use measurement tools in this video here.
fullAPI by setting it to true. Enable
enableRedaction by setting it to true. From the ribbon drop-down in the top center of WebViewer, select
Redact and use the redaction tools. You can view some examples how to use redaction tools in this video here.
enableExtractPagesToAppian by setting it to true. First, you need to select pages you would like to extract. To do this, open the
Left Panel with thumbnail previews of the current document. You can select one or multiple pages by clicking on a thumbnail (hold shift to select a page range) or pass a text string of the page range at the bottom of the thumbnail panel. Then click on the
Extract Selected Pages button on the top right of the WebViewer UI. This will open a modal that will let you name your file. You can click
Save to create a new document with extracted pages without changing the original document you are currently viewing. Alternatively, click on
Save & Remove pages to remove the pages from the original document and save them into the newly created one.
Yes, you can use Apryse WebViewer to merge multiple documents. You can pass multiple document id values to the
appianDocId parameter, to automatically merge them in the viewer. Then you can click on save or save as to save the merged document.
You can use Apryse WebViewer's annotation capabilities to annotate and collaborate on documents in Appian. Ensure that the
enableAnnotations is not set to false (it defaults to true). You can use the
Annotate ribbon to annotate files by drawing, highlighting, inserting shapes, signing and more. All annotations show up on the comments panel, where you can interact with other Appian users (approve/respond to comments etc). You can save documents with annotations in them (called flattening a document) or you can save annotations seperately from the document as a text string (called an XFDF string).
Apryse will attend Appian World 2023. You can find us at booth 221, close to the theatre / community hub.
You can contact us with your feature request or use case and our team will prioritize it for our roadmap. Please plan ahead to allow time for prioritization, design, development on our end as well as review by the Appian AppMarket team for this.
