Decode base64 to PDF - Missing file extension

Hi, I’m fairly new to the Mendix platform and I’m trying to decode a base64 string and download as a PDF. I’ve created a mircoflow using CommunityCommons.Base64DecodeToFile to decode the string into a System.FileDocument parameter. I then use the Download file action. However it downloads without a file extension. Once downloaded, if I add the “.pdf” extension the file opens without any issues. Does anyone have any advice? Thank you in advance, Mark

If you know its always going to be a pdf, then you can prepend the extension yourself. Once you convert your string to a document, in the same microflow use the change activity to append the pdf extension to the name. Then download the file. 


Edit: Here is an example
