RightsManagement web service


Not applicable
I have successfully installed a turnkey LiveCycle (WebLogic) server and have written a couple test methods in C# (as proof of concepts). One method I have invokes the rights management web service to apply a policy to a PDF. It appears to work fine, except when the new PDF (with rights) is loaded Adobe Reader tells me:

"You are attempting to connect to an Adobe LiveCycle Policy Server using an insecure protocol (http)....."

And it wont let me view the PDF (which makes sense).

So I configured WebLogic for SSL using the info here: Note: I used the SSL port of 7002, just like in the docs.

Now I am not sure what else i need to do. I am calling the rights management webservice using the Url: http://testbed:8001/soap/services/RightsManagementService and I get the same "insecure protocol" error as above. If I switch the Url to HTTPS and port 7002, the web call fails with "unable to connect to server". I feel i told weblogic how to use SSL, but LiveCycle needs configuration somewhere to make this work.

I guess I am trying to determine what else I need to do in order to allow me to view my PDFS after I apply rights. This is not production, this is just a testbed so we can write some proof-of-concept code.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Ok i managed to get a little further on my own, but am failing on the SSL. By reading this post from previous LC versions( I realized i needed to set the BASE URL of the Rights Management service to point to the SSL port, like https://192.168.1.x:8443 and to keep calling the web service using the http://192.168.1.x:8001 url.

Now I can call the service, get back my document with rights, and when I load the document I see it is hitting https://192.168.1.x:8443 (because it tells me), but when I allow this I get the error:

"The computer must be connected to the network in order to open this document."

So there must be something more to enabling SSL in WebLogic than was stated here?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks! Although I did not see anything different from what was written in the guide. I followed that guide for WebLogic SSL, and I am unable to access https urls like https://192.168.1.x:8443/adminui. (Note: I first used port 7002 in weblogic then moved it to 8443)

I am wondering if I setup WebLogic to listen for SSL to port 8443, how it changes what I specify for the base URL for Rights Management Server.

It won't automatically change the base URL that gets put into policy-applied PDFs. You have to manually change it in the AdminUI. To do that, access the AdminUI through the non-SSL port.

The ultimate experience is back.
