Option Name Description
allow_multiple_outputs
Type: boolean
Default: False
If the validation produces more than one output file, by default all of them are compressed in just one file. Set this option to true if you want a download link for each file.
allow_multiple_outputs_threshold
Type: integer
Minimum: 2
Maximum: 400
Sets the threshold for the number of output files during conversion. This option is considered only when `allow_multiple_outputs` is set to true. If the generated output files exceed this threshold, they are compressed into one file. Conversely, if the threshold is not met, each output file remains uncompressed.
download_password
Type: string
Pattern: ^[ -~]{0,1000}$
Example: secret_password
A password to protect the download. To download the file send the password in the x-oc-download-password header or set a cookie named x-oc-download-password. The value contains a comma separated list of passwords.
validation_profile
Type: string
Enum: pdfa1a pdfa1b pdfa2a pdfa2b pdfa2u pdfa3a pdfa3b pdfa3u pdfa4 pdfa4e pdfa4f pdfaua1
The input file is checked for PDF/A compliance to this profile
