How to allow only the specified users/groups to open my pdf files...

Hi there,



I'm looking for resources/documents describing how to allow only the specified users/groups to open my pdf files by the Java API...



I've found a sample code creating a policy in the following document.

http://livedocs.adobe.com/livecycle/es/sdkHelp/programmer/sdkHelp/wwhelp/wwhimpl/js/html/wwhelp.htm?...

( API Quick Starts (Code Examples) > Rights Management Service API Quick Starts > Quick Start: Creating a new policy using the Java API )



But the sample code doesn't set recepients( users/groups ) who can open the pdf file.



How can I make it ?



Any samples ? or Does anybody can tell me which Java classes/methods I should use ??



Policy#addPolicyEntry(PolicyEntry policyEntry) ??

PolicyEntry#setPrincipal(Principal principal) ??

or none of them ?



Any hints are appreciated !



Thanks.

I'm not exactly sure what you are tying to do here, but typical approach when issuing one PDF par user/groups scenario goes like:



1. Create policy for specific purpose and add principal (user/group)

2. Apply policy on server side

3. Deliver the file (via email etc...)



If you are looking for sample codes, try quick start.

If you go "API Quick Start/Rights Management Service API Quick Starts", you might find something useful. I think you need "Creating Policies" or "Modifying Policies" for step 1 above, and "Applying Policies to PDF Documents" for step 2.



Hope this helps.
