Does the REST API support adding multi-page PDFs to a board and if so, is the extract to separate pages an option?

Pretty sure the answer is no-unfortunately.

 

 The SDK can allow creating an image widget from an image URL. I believe that widget type doesn’t support PDF (just jpg, png) and that multi page PDF is a different type of widget. 
 

the API on the other hand describes here: 

https://developers.miro.com/reference#widget-types

that the image and document as “read only”.

@Max Harper Thanks for the quick response on this. I know how to write a REST program with Python, but not sure how I would leverage the SDK. Do you have any recommendations for a quick start guide on using the SDK. I’ve looked at the Miro SDK documentation/Github examples, but I need something for newbies.

On a positive note : I don’t know exactly how to simplify for where you’re at without talking to you more and learning - so.. I’d be happy to connect with you on a video call at some point. 

However… that said, I’m not sure the sdk will be able to help you with the precise desire you mention in the thread —  if you’re going to work with PDFs… and I’m  pretty sure there’s no support for automatically unfurling the multi page pdf to each page. 

but again- happy to connect and be a resource for helping you get to know the API/SDK platform and it’s capabilities better.
