Hi Kaynes,

The mime type for pdf is "application/pdf". The path is also not correct. This blog describes the process step by step:

After reading your post a second time. You want to upload a link, right? In this case, you don't need to fill the mime type at all.

So, don't fill MimeType or DocumentLink, just fill LinkWebURI.
