Archive Client

If you have documents in the archive, you can retrieve them by their IDs.

See Create client configuration for instructions on how to set up the configuration for the archive client. Note that the concept of “global sender” is not used by the archive client, and may be omitted in the configuration.

ClientConfiguration clientConfiguration = null; //As initialized earlier


var archiveClient = new ArchiveClient(clientConfiguration);

var owner = new DocumentOwner("123456789");
var archivedDocumentId = new ArchivedDocumentId("abcde12345");

var padesByteStream = await archiveClient.GetPades(owner, archivedDocumentId);
ClientConfiguration clientConfiguration = null; //As initialized earlier


ArchiveClient archiveClient = new ArchiveClient(clientConfiguration);

DocumentOwner owner = DocumentOwner.ofOrganizationNumber("123456789");
String archivedDocumentId = "abcde12345";

try (InputStream pAdESStream = archiveClient.getPades(owner, archivedDocumentId)) {
    // consume the downloaded PAdES document

To download a document, send an HTTP GET request to api.<env><organization-num>/archive/documents/<id>/pades.

  • <env> is difiqa, difitest, or just remove the environment part for the production environment.
  • <organization-num> is the organization number whose archive you want to access
  • <id> is the ID of the document you want to download.
  • The ending /pades indicates the variant of the document you want to download, and at this point only signed documents (PAdES) is supported. For more information on the format of the signed document, see signerte-dokumenter.
