Re: Form Data Integration and Forms Gary_Gilchrist - Adobe LiveCycle
I found out that this problem was a bug (#2504275) in ES2 that has since been fixed in ES2 SP1. If you can apply the service pack that ought to fix your probelm.

Re: Category Management Gary_Gilchrist - Adobe LiveCycle
No. In fact the concept of "category" really only applies to organization of processes visible in Workspace so that they can be grouped under a common theme in the UI. As for Workbench, we have a flat list of Applications and inside each Application you can manage multiple Application Versions. What is is it that you would like to do with Categories or Hierarchies or services?Gary.

Re: Form Data Integration and Forms Gary_Gilchrist - Adobe LiveCycle
A while ago we built a sample that would use both Forms and Form data integrator to merge data with a Form. Here it is:http://help.adobe.com/en_US/livecycle/9.0/samples/ServiceUsageSampleFormDataManipulation.htmlThe error that you report is implying that there is a class dependency between Form Data Integrator and a package called "com/adobe/formServer/utils" which is not installed (and I agree does sound like the Forms Service).You should be able to use the Form Data integratiion service to per...

Re: Context when Invoking Long Running Processes Gary_Gilchrist - Adobe LiveCycle
That is odd. I did beleive that when you set Run As Invoker on a long loved process, then that will set the execution context for each of the steps that are invoked via the Work Manager (thus overriding the default behavior) but I will double check for you (maybe it was a chnage in behavior in ES2)

Re: Context when Invoking Long Running Processes Gary_Gilchrist - Adobe LiveCycle
The reason for that (and sorry, I know this will not immediately solve your problem) is that the *parent* process probably did not have a Run As configured. Being Long-Lived it will, by default, run as "System" after its invoker has invoked it and is no longer synchronously waiting for a resoponse. So if you chnage the parent process to "Run As Invoker", then I think you may see the invokers context proagate through to the child process as well. But this difficult to manage because each of the s...

Re: Context when Invoking Long Running Processes Gary_Gilchrist - Adobe LiveCycle
This is not a very useful answer, but might be relevant added info: You can browse services (that arise from your deployed processes) in the Admin UI and configure their "Run As" behavior. The Run As can be set to the Invoking User, a named user or System. I think you may be able to set the Run As for any long lived process to be the process invoker, which will in turn get passed through to any sub processes that get called. The downside of course is that you may not really want those processes ...

New Add-ons for Workbench ES2 Gary_Gilchrist - Adobe LiveCycle
Hello,On Adobe Labs we have provided a sneak peek at many of the new features we've been working on in Workbench. They are all compatible with ES2. You can find more information on Adobe Labs at: http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/lcworkbench_addons/These Add-ons are a "Labs" preview of some of the new improvements we're currently working on. It is not a formal Service Pack, so try to use it in a Sandbox environment that is not mission critical .We'd really like to get some feedback from you on ...

Re: Demo SAML 2.0 signle signon and prefill Gary_Gilchrist - Adobe LiveCycle
While I am not sure about Guides, here is some related infotmation that may help you towards the answer:- If your browser session is already authenticated to LC (i.e. you have an LC cookie) then a Flex application can actually invoke LC services with remoting and provide SSO with the existing logged on user identity.- There has been work done in ES2 to allow SAML to work as a means of browser based authentication to LiveCycle and this can be extended also to Flex applications.

Re: Create Data Model from XML Schema (XSD) Gary_Gilchrist - Adobe LiveCycle
Hi Scott,The only obvious thing I can mention is that an XML Schema can be used in a LiveCycle application. You can create an xml variable and associate it with an XSD. That's useful of course when processing form data that has been submitted from a PDF Form. But there are many other reasons you might need to pass XML data around within an LC application and such data can be bound to a schema (see the properties of an XML variable). Sorry if that might be too obvious though The point about not b...

Re: Workspace AutoLogin Gary_Gilchrist - Adobe LiveCycle
In LiveCycle ES Update 1 we support the SPNEGO protocol used by Windows to authenticate desktop users to our Web Applications (Workspace, Admin console etc). This works in a Windows Domain using Active Directory.Also LiveCycle can be configured to rely on SSO products that initially set a user token identifier in HTTP Headers.Our documentation provides some background info:http://www.adobe.com/go/learn_lc_administration_82If you can use one of these approaches, then a nice benefit is that forms ...

Re: User registration process Gary_Gilchrist - Adobe LiveCycle
Before you write your own app to push users into LC, please bear in mind the way it works today:1. You can point LC to a corporate LDAP and it will auto populate (sync) a certain user base in the directory. Its very easy to set up2. You can write a "Directory" SPI provider that LC will call out to in order to fetch and periodically sync users. The interface to implement is very simple and its easy to register your SPI Provider3. There is an admin UI to add and manage users.If none of these scena...

Re: User registration process Gary_Gilchrist - Adobe LiveCycle
It's maybe easier than you think. You do not need LC Data Services in order to use our java SDK (for UM or other LC java packages) You just write an application that uses the SDK. Be sure though to use all the right jar files in your class path - you can find details on line in the developer documentation.Gary.

Re: Start Process "Card" Opens External URL? Gary_Gilchrist - Adobe LiveCycle
I chatted with the team about this. Workspace wants you browse LC end points and show you task content (forms/swf's/documents) in an iFrame that it communicates with for Reader. We have never encountered a requirement to make the end point or the task content be any old external URL, although it is a good suggestion for a feature / enhancementI have seen something similar done before, but it is a bit clunky. It generated a PDF that contained a URL with a button on the PDF that will open the URL ...

Re: Enable/disable fields in Workspace form Gary_Gilchrist - Adobe LiveCycle
If your form is simple; for example two sections that needed to be enabled or disabled based on the User Task in which the form is being viewed, there might be a rather blunt way you can do this.You could make two copies of the same form with the appropriate changes to the fields and then modify the Form URL repository location in your xfaform variable using a Set Value before the User Task. If other than field status, both forms are the same then the data will still pass from one user's form to...

Re: Changing Password of Workspace Gary_Gilchrist - Adobe LiveCycle
Typically LiveCycle integrates with an existing Identity Management System or LDAP and authenticates users against that external system. We do support locally created and managed users and you can change those passwords through the LC Admin UI. However if you are using LDAP etc then you need to manage users' passwords with that system.

Re: Cannot login (with correct userID and password) Gary_Gilchrist - Adobe LiveCycle
If you can log into the Admin UI as the "administrator" user then you should be able to log into workspace too. If you are trying to log into workspace as any other user identity, then make sure that the user has the appropriate permission; for example try assigning the "Workspace User" role to that user in the Admin UI.If you cannot even log on to Workspace as the "administrator" user then chances are something is wrong with your installation. You should have a look in the server log to see if ...

Re: Cannot approve/deny a DocumentForm in Workspace Gary_Gilchrist - Adobe LiveCycle
If you are using the free Adobe Reader then it's likely that you need to Reader Extend the PDF Form on the server (in your Render Service) before you show it in Workspace. Submit as PDF is similar to saving a copy of the PDF with form data, which requires Reader Extensions.

Re: Reader Extension and Submit Button Gary_Gilchrist - Adobe LiveCycle
When a PDF Form is shown in Workspace, the LC server actually attempts to make a modification to the form (called "augmentation") in which a scripting bridge is added to the form. This happens inside the Render Service used to show the form. Workspace needs this to happen so that it can instruct Acrobat/Reader in the browser to hide the submit button, thus allowing the Workspace UI buttons to be used instead. I know that if the PDF Form is signed then LC will not attempt to make this modificatio...

Re: Encryption type of LiveCycle Security? Gary_Gilchrist - Adobe LiveCycle
Hi,A PDF might be encrypted using Acrobat (or also using the LC Server) using a password, Public Key Certificate or a symmetric key obtained from LC Rights Management for a policy protected document.In all cases, LC needs its callers (through the SDK or in process design) to supply the secret used to yield the key for decryption. For example in order for LC to decrypt a password protected PDF, it requires the API caller to supply the actual password. LC does not have any internal means to decryp...

It's great to hear you got the help you need. But yes, the samples always perform those steps during install. I have not heard of this failing before and I would be interested in the platform (app server, db) that you used or if this was just a simple turn key.
