Hello,

Im looking to be able to a security and and an expiration date to a pdf when a client downloads it (i need all of the work to happen on the "on-click" button event of the site im working on). Will the Adobe SDK allow for me to do this? I would think there would be an easier way to open the pdf > add js for expire and security > save and deliver to the client.

 

Regards

There is no such thing as an "expiry date" for a PDF. Hence, the Acrobat SDK can't create one.

Document security can be set using a plug-in, written in C++, but only on an interactive end-user computer. You CANNOT use the Acrobat SDK on a server since Acrobat cannot be licensed for a server.

What you're describing is in effect DRM protection. You can't apply it with Acrobat or the Acrobat SDK.
