Hi All,


We have a scenario in which for a GET call, LISA has to send a PDF response as a downloadable file.


Though, we are able to download the file, but the content is blank. Means pdf downloaded with no content inside it.


Approaches Followed:


1st - Copied the base64 format response and copied it in the response section. With this approach, not even able to open the pdf file, when tried hitting from the URL.


2nd - Decoded the base64 response, able to download the file and able to open it, but the file has no content(white space with 4 pages)


Below are the response headers used:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK

Server: LISA/Virtual-Environment-Server

Date: Thu, 16 Jun 2016 14:31:00 CEST

X-Powered-By: LISA/8.3.0 (

WAS_JSON: true

Content-disposition: attachment;filename=bill.pdf

LittleEndian: false

ByteAlign: true

Payload.class: String

Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8BIT

Content-Type: application/octet-stream

Content-Length: 91902


Please let us know if there are any other headers or changes we need to make to see the content inside the pdf.


Thanks in advance.
