How to get the MimeType of a Document

We can easily access the MimeType of a document using the Document Variable in a process
If our process is configured to use a Folder variable, we can simply loop through the Folder to access each Document

Required:

  • Process with Document Variable
  • KIC Import configured

For a process configured with a Folder Initialisation variable, please configure a loop and then follow these steps on the loop iteration:

  1. Add a manual node
  2. On the input of the manual node map in the Document.System property 'MimeType'
    i.e. Click on the Document Variable, Click on System, then choose MimeType:
    2.png
    1.png
  3. Using your KIC import, ingest various document types (.pdf, .tiff, .png, .jpg)
  4. Wait for your manual activity to become pending
    The MimeTypes will be displayed as follows:
    application/pdf
    image/tiff
    image/jpeg
    image/png

This article was to demo how we can access this property,
We can then use it in decision nodes etc as required
