I have a site, when a guest user insert some data into a inputText it triggers a record creation (HojaEntrega__c object and child records from HojaEntregaItem__c object), then an attachment creation and this attachment. Then it sends by email to this user.

When I try this from visualforce (with Admin user) it works perfectly, I get the email with the attachment. But when I try from site, I get the email but the attachment is blank.

Into the visualforce I show a link to the PDF visualforce and the guest user can view the record as a PDF. This works fine.

This is the class that creates the record, the attachment and send the email.

public /*without sharing*/ class HojaEntregaManagementClass {
public static void createHojaEntregaRecordAndSendEmail(Order pedido, Account cliente, Account distribuidor){
    system.debug('Método createHojaEntregaRecordAndSendEmail');
        HojaEntrega__c hEntregaCreada = createHojaEntregaSFRecord(cliente, distribuidor, pedido);
        Id hEntregaId = hEntregaCreada.Id;
        //GenerateCustomPDFAndEmail(hEntregaId, cliente, distribuidor);
    }catch(Exception ex){
        System.debug('Exception: ' + ex + ', getLineNumber: ' + ex.getLineNumber());

    mail.setSenderDisplayName('Holiday Telecom');
    mail.setToAddresses(new String[]{emailCliente, emailDistribuidor});
    mail.setPlainTextBody('Here is your attachment.');
    mail.setFileAttachments(new Messaging.EmailFileAttachment[]{mssgAtt});


public static void actualizarHojaEntrega(HojaEntrega__c hojaEntregaCreada){
    system.debug('Método actualizarHojaEntrega');
        update hojaEntregaCreada;
    }catch(Exception ex){
        system.debug('Error en proceso HojaEntregaManagementClass.actualizarHojaEntrega: ' + ex.getMessage() + ', getLineNumber: ' + ex.getLineNumber()
                     + ', getCause: ' + ex.getCause());    


I think maybe can this because the body of the attachment isn't creating fine but I'm stuck and I'm not know what to try.

I edit with info about guest User configuration.

    Did you give VF Page and Object access to guest site user profile? Jun 8, 2020 at 9:12

    I think the issue is here ' PageReference defaultPage = new PageReference('/apex/PDFHojaEntregaHT');' guest site user will refer to this page differently . can you expose that page to an URL in focce.com site and then try creating pdf? Jun 8, 2020 at 11:01
  • @PranayJaiswal from the site, I put a link to the page and this is the url xxx.cs84.force.com/accesoDistribuidoresHT/… I have tried putting this: PageReference defaultPage = PageReference('/accesoDistribuidoresHT/pdfhojaentregaht'); defaultPage.getParameters().put('id', recordId); But I get an 'Salesforce Internal Error' Jun 8, 2020 at 16:29
  • Thanks @PranayJaiswal you were right! Jun 9, 2020 at 6:29

I had changed the pageReference:

PageReference defaultPage = new PageReference('https://xxxxx.force.com/accesoDistribuidoresHT/pdfhojaentregaht');

It's hardcode and I think this is not correct but it works!

PS: I tried with

PageReference defaultPage = Page.Pdfhojaentregaht;

But this doesn't work.
