How to Finish Editing a Document in Node.JS

As a partner to our previously posted Begin Editing function, this following API will allow you to close out an online editing session and download the resulting file instantly. This function should be performed after any editing action in order to save and complete the operation. To call this function, you will need to input the File URL you have been using for your edits.

Run the following command to install the SDK:

npm install cloudmersive-convert-api-client --save

Or, you can add this snippet to your package.json:

"dependencies": {
"cloudmersive-convert-api-client": "^2.4.8"
}

Then, you can call the function:

var CloudmersiveConvertApiClient = require('cloudmersive-convert-api-client');
var defaultClient = CloudmersiveConvertApiClient.ApiClient.instance;
// Configure API key authorization: Apikey
var Apikey = defaultClient.authentications['Apikey'];
Apikey.apiKey = 'YOUR API KEY';
var apiInstance = new CloudmersiveConvertApiClient.EditDocumentApi();var reqConfig = new CloudmersiveConvertApiClient.FinishEditingRequest(); // FinishEditingRequest | Cloudmersive Document URL to complete editing onvar callback = function(error, data, response) {
if (error) {
console.error(error);
} else {
console.log('API called successfully. Returned data: ' + data);
}
};
apiInstance.editDocumentFinishEditing(reqConfig, callback);

You can retrieve the API Key for this function at no cost and with no commitment on the Cloudmersive website. This will give you access to 800 monthly calls across our entire API library.
