DocuBin File Upload Issue

4 posts in this topic

I am facing a problem while uploading a file to DocuBin from the Sample file which is available in the DocuBin downloaded folder.

When I am uploading a new file to DocuBin from Sample file, its showing an error message as "Parameter missing (*)" followed by another error message as "Error 958. Parameter missing (*)".

Here I have attached the screenshot of those error messages. It will be a great help if anyone of you suggest the way to fix this issue.

Have you made any modifications to the Sample file? If so, be sure to properly pass in any script parameters. 



The Sample file script:

Add File to DocuBin

Calls the following DocuBin developer script:

DocuBin - Add File ( Path ; File )

And requires the script parameter to be formatted as follows:

"<Path>" & $Path & "</Path>" &
"<File>" & $File & "</File>"



$Path is the location of the file in DocuBin
$File is the location of the file you want to upload to DocuBin

Also, by default, the Sample file will upload a file to /Projects/{Project Code}/, so if the Project Code is 1000, it will upload the file to /Projects/1000/. If the folder is not there, you should get an error that says the parent directory does not exist.

Thanks Michael for replying.


Actually I have not done any changes to the Sample file. I have just followed the "Getting Started" text which is available in the downloaded DocuBin folder.

I have also created the Projects/1000 folder in DocuBin. 


All other functionality in Sample file are working fine except Upload File To DocuBin. 

I am still facing the "Parameter missing (*)" error even though the script parameter is formatted as follows:


"<Path>" & $Path & "</Path>" & "<File>" & $File & "</File>"


Here I have attached the screenshot of the script step.

      I'm trying to get DocuBin up and running on my development FMS14 machine.
      I installed SuperContainer and it is running on the server in demo mode right now.
      I uploaded the DocuBin files to the server machine. When I open the DocuBin file I get an error that the DocuBin Companion plugin isn't installed. It tries to install but is disabled in the FileMaker Pro Preferences. When It try to enable it in the Prefs I get an error. Installing apps from anywhere is enabled. 
      The Remote Scripter plugin is also not installed and isn't.
      Any suggestions?

      Wondering what the status of SuperContainer and DocuBin are for use with FileMaker 14?
      Been trying to get them configured on my dev FMS14 machine without a lot of luck yet.

      Hi Just installed Docubin and supercontainer.  The files are there but can't see them in the file structure and when loading them got this plug in error message com.prosc.fmkit.fmcalculationExpression: 3.   Can you tell me what I may have done wrong.

      We are in the process of testing DocuBin access via Citrix XenApp 6.
      I'm running into a couple of issues and hoped someone might have some experience or insight, or perhaps just some tips on using DocuBin via Citrix. I have DocuBin set up as a published app and am accessing it via Citrix Online Plugin on a Mac running OS X 10.7. Also tested on a Mac running OS X 10.5.8.
      Issue 1. When exporting a selection from DocuBin, I get the following error "java.lang.NullPointerException [superContainer]" when I try to save the selection to the root level of drive U:/, which is mapped to my local desktop. I do NOT get the error when I save to another folder on my desktop, e.g., U:/files/ .
      I would like users to be able to save directly to drive U:/ -- their local desktop directory -- without having to create a new folder to save documents to.
      Issue 2. When I try to upload a large file, the Citrix Online Plugin is quitting unexpectedly and when I log back in to the Citrix published app, it shows an error "insufficient data written [superContainer]. Perhaps the quitting unexpectedly is unrelated to the error -- i.e., the error is caused because the file transfer was interrupted because of the Citrix Online Plugin unexpectedly quitting.
      Any help would be appreciated.
