Free API not returning the SearchablePDFURL value

I’ve been using the free API for quite some time now. I’ve been having frequently an issue where it doesn’t return the SearchablePDFURL value on the API, even though I provided a true value for isCreateSearchablePdf on my request, the text was recognized and there was no error returned.

If I create multiple copies of the file and send them, some return with a URL, but most don’t.

What could be happening?



Hi, there was indeed an issue on some servers of the free OCR API.

=> We fixed this issue today, so now you should always get the correct searchable PDF URL returned.
