Getting output from SOAP input

Getting output from SOAP input - 08/23/17 03:18 PM

Hello,

I'm trying to use the Soap input module to submit a file to planet watch. The watch process has only the Input SOAP, and PlanetPress Image modules, and it's supposed to return a PDF.
However, the TSubmitJobResult.SubmitResultFile is returning a Postscript file, while the PDF is being written to the archive location defined in the Image module. Is there a way for the soap to return the completed PDF, and perhaps not write anything to the archive at all?

I've resolved my problem, so in case anyone else is running into this issue, I'll post the solution here.

The SubmitResultFile value is supposed to contain the job file resulting from from the completed planet process. My problem was that I was ending my process with the Image connector, which sets the job file as a postscript file. I changed that module to the Create PDF action which sets the job file as the resultant PDF.
My new process is 'Input SOAP' - 'Create PDF' - 'Delete'
