Hey @Huy,

Yes, it is possible by using a technique called Exit Link Tracking Redirects:

Adobe currently provides a mechanism that lets you track external links by linking to Adobe data collection servers and appending a redirect URL. After the link is tracked, Adobe data collection servers return an HTTP redirect to the location provided. This lets you track links without using JavaScript.

You will need to republish your PDFs though.

The documentation for it can be found here: Marketing Cloud Help - Exit Link Tracking Redirects https://marketing.adobe.com/resources/help/en_US/whitepapers/redirects/
