Generate PDF/A files Aspose.PDF for .NET - Cannot set AFRelationship tag; PDF/A3 output files fail zugferd/factur-x validation

We need for ASPose to allow us to set the AFRelationship tag in the FileSpecification. Without this capability, PDF/A3 files output from ASPose fail the European (France/Germany) standards for electronic invoices.

Background and sample code attached.

We recently purchased ASPose.PDF for .Net to add PDF/A3 and PDF digital signing capabilities to our ERP application. Our framework code communicates with SSRS to receive rendered PDF reports and then makes calls to ASPose to convert to PDF/A3 and attach structured XML files.

Our first area of dependence on ASPose is to generate einvoices for German/France markets. It’s working fine except for (as far as we can tell) 1 missing setting that causes
our generated files to fail validation by zugferd/factur-x validators.

I am attaching a sample C# application that can be used to demonstrate the issue.
Example
EInvoice capability was the main reason we purchased ASPose so it’s very important for us to get a fix for this issue.

Hello @asad.ali ,

Without an answer from you, I allow myself to revive the subject once again. The topic is open since February 21 and still unanswered and solution provided

@Murphy54

Sadly, the ticket is not yet resolved. Please note that we already had escalated the ticket prirority to higher level despite being logged under normal support. However, the feature is complex in nature and needs significant amount of time in order to get implemented. We surely intend to provide functionality you are looking for however, we need some time and your cooperation in this matter.

We are sorry for the delay and inconvenience.

@asad.ali

Hi !
Any news about this problem ?

@Murphy54

The investigation is still underway against the earlier logged ticket. As shared earlier, the feature is complex in nature and needs more time to get fully investigated for its feasibility. We will inform you as soon as some updates are available regarding the resolution of ticket. We highly appreciate your cooperation in this matter. Please give us some time.

We apologize for the delay and inconvenience.

Any news 2 months later ?

@Murphy54

We are afraid that the logged ticket is not yet resolved. The requested feature is still being investigated parallel to other tasks and improvements to the API, hence its taking time.

We highly appreciate your cooperation.

We are sorry for the delay and inconvenience.
