NickyWhen a policy is applied to a PDF using Rights Management, users who were included in the policy must authenticate to Rights Management. Users are stotred in a database, and authentication is eother handled by LiveCycle or LDAP (depending on how the LC database of users was populated.It is possible to set a policy to "Anonymous", which means there is no authentication step, anyone can open the PDF, but permissions can still be enforced (i.e. No Print), but the permissions are global (meanin...

You can set "seed" values in the signature field. A seed value can control the behaviour of the field. In the case mentioned in the original post, you coul set the seed value of the "supervisor" signature field so that only the specific digital certificate owned\held by the supervisor could be used to sign the field.You can set signature field seed values so that the signature field can only be signed by...a specific digital certificate (Signing Certificate)any certificate issued by a specific c...

RodrigoIf you are using the "My Policies" feature, and If the user created the policy in "My Policies" then only that user (policy creator) can apply the policy to a document. These are considered "personal" policies.You need to create a Policy Set, and then policies with in the policy set. Any user that is set as a "Document Publisher" within the policy set will have access to the policies stored in the set and can apply any of the policies to a document.SegardsSteve

The sample you found is probably as good as it's going to get. Rights Management policies can either allow or prevent printing, there is no "permission" to set the number of copies that can be printed.The policy is checked when the document is opened, if the policy is dynamically changed (i.e. the permission to print is removed) it will not take affect until the document is closed and re-opened, so in theory, the document can be printed multiple times when opened the first time.Also, there is no...

It is probably not exactly what you want, but I think you could have an unencrypted PDF that anyone could view, with the encrypted PDF attached to it. You can not achieve what you want with a single PDF file.RegardsSteve

PeterThat's odd, as it is possible to certify a PDF (without a signature field) when using a process created in Workbench. You would think that the APIs would function the same, unless the CertifyPDF operation in Workbench creates an invisible signature field as part of the certify operation.You could check with Adobe Technical support to confirm.RegardsSteve

Using the Workbench tool, you can create a process to "certify" a PDF using the CertifyPDF operation without needing to specifiy a signature field. The same should be possible when using the APIs. Have you tried to certify the PDF without creating a signature field first?RegardsSteve

I don't know the answers to your questions, I would suggest that you contact Adobe Technical Support with your questions as they will probably need to speak with the engineers (or maybe Product Management) to get the information you need.RegardsSteve

I'm not clear on what you are asking, but if it is "Can you apply a policy to a PDF usinng Reader?' The answer is no. Reader can open "policy protected" PDFs, and the permissions allowed or restricted by the policy will be enforced in Reader.To apply a policy to a PDF, you need Acrobat Pro (manual process), or you can use LiveCycle ES2\ES3 to automate the process of applying a policy to a PDF using the the Workbench process design tool or by writing Java code using the LiveCycle APIs.RegardsStev...

Does the form contain any JavaScript or FormCalc? It is possible that some JavaScript is executing that changes the state of the form or data causing the signaure to be invalidated.RegardsSteve

I don't think that the dialog can be suppressed. If there is a "Don't show this dialog again" check box then the user can suppress it going forward, but they will always get the dialog the first time.RegardsSteve

Can you be more specific as to what the problem is? Can you apply policies to a document, and are you able to open the protected document?Make sure the "Base URL" value that is specified in the RM configuration is correct (based on your proxy settings). This URL is embedded in a protected document so it knows which RM server to contact for authentication\authorization.RegardsSteve

No, there is no way set a default user name and password, but as an alternative you can set your policy to be "Anonymous Access", meaning that there is no authentication (of the user) required to open the document, but you can still control (i.e. prevent printing) what the "anonymous" user can do to\with the document.RegardsSteve

I tested the following, it may address your situation.I added the User A signature field to the User B field collection. This means that when the second user signs, it locks the first signers signature field. This DOES NOT prevent the first signer (User A) from clearing his\her signature, but it does prevent User A form being able to re-sign the signature field.I have attached a very simple sample.Hope this helps.RegardsSteve

The "auditing" functionality is anabled bgy default on the server side. It can be cionfigured via the LiveCycle Administrative UI (Services > Rights Management > Configuration > Audit and Privacy Settings)Then you enable "auditing" at the policy level on a policy by policy basis...You can use auditing with "Anonymous" access policies or Specific user polcies.RegardsSteve

SamuelJust a guess, but it may be related to the "permissions" you assigned to the document as part of the certification. There are three levels...No Changes AllowedAllow Form Filling and SigningAllow Form Filling, Signing and Annotations.Also, has the document been "Reader Extended"? A PDF must have "Reader Extensions" applied to it to allow for Web Service calls to be made from the form when the form is vieng viewed in reader. If possible test your form in Acrobat Professional, if your JavaScr...

Rights Management supports "auditing" of documents protected wioth a RM policy. If you enable auding in the policy you create, you will be able to view an event log on the server side, events such as "Document Open" are tracked so you can see who opened a protected document and when it was opened.RegardsSteve

The previous post is correct. Reader will not allow you to sigh an form unless it has been reader extended to enable the signing functionality. Acrobat pro or LiveCycle Reader Extensions can be used for this.RegardsSteve

Has the form been Reader Extended (either with Acrobat or LiveCycle Reader Extensions)? If so, this will caue the error as a digital signatiure is actually applied to control the reader extension permissions) The order of operations when using encryprtion and reader extensions is always encrypt first.RegardsSteve

If no specific errors or exceptions are thrown, it's difficult to troubleshoot. Acrobat or Reader has to communicate with the RM server, the user has to be authenticated, and the AES key has to be sent to the client to decrypt the document. It is difficult to know which part is contributing most to the slow down. I don't believe that the deploying or re-deploying of the EAR files is related to the problem.Is Reader\Acrobat installed on the same machine as the LiveCycle server (JBoss)? If not, is...

Do you also have Reader installed on the same machine? If so, make sure Acrobat is set to be the defult PDF viewer. It could be that Reader is being used as the PDF preview application.RegardsSteve
