I am trying make a http callout to the genAndConvertEnvelopes Api to generate a document and save it back to Salesforce and it is failing to due to the below error:

System.StringException: Unrecognized base64 character:

Apex code below can anyone help?

public class docusignGen_And_API {
   
    @InvocableMethod(label='docusignGen_And_API')

        System.debug(recordId);
        gen_and_convert(recordId);
        return Null;
    }

The error System.StringException: Unrecognized base64 character: typically occurs when you’re trying to decode a string that is not properly formatted in Base641Base64 encoding uses the characters [A-Za-z0-9+/]1. If your string contains characters outside this range, you’ll encounter this error.

In your case, it seems like you’re trying to decode a JSON response directly into a Base64 string. However, the JSON response itself is not Base64 encoded, but it may contain some Base64 data2You need to properly deserialize the JSON response first to get the data inside of it2.

Here’s how you can do it:

Java

 

String responseBody = response1.getBody();
Map<String, Object> responseMap = (Map<String, Object>) JSON.deserializeUntyped(responseBody);
String base64Content = (String) responseMap.get('your_base64_field');
Blob blobContent = EncodingUtil.base64Decode(base64Content);

AI-generated code. Review and use carefully. More info on FAQ.

In the code above, replace 'your_base64_field' with the actual field name in the JSON response that holds the Base64 content1.

Please note that this is a general solution. You might need to adjust the code according to the actual structure of your JSON response. If you’re still encountering issues, I recommend checking the documentation of the genAndConvertEnvelopes API or contacting their support for more specific guidance.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.
