Protected word document issue in DAM

Avatar

Level 1

We uploaded a protected word document to DAM yesterday, when we try edit the properties of this asset, we can not do that within DAM. It just does not open the properties.When I look at the logs,I don't see any errors to trace this back to.

Is there a restriction of what can be uploaded to DAM?

Thank you.

I did not get that result. I uploaded a secured PDF document and I was able to modify the assets properties as shown here:

You can see the same props in CRXDE lite:

There is no DAM restriction on modifying properties of a protected Word doc.

Hmmm... I asked the biz user to supply us a sample protected document so we can test this out. In the mean while I looked at the metadata:

In my problem-document, there is a dam:Security attribute, set to 8. Would that be causing it?
