OLE Automation in Acrobat

Hello!
The OLE Automation is technically available in Acrobat Pro 2020. But we don't quite understand if we are allowed to use OLE Automation in automatic mode in Acrobat Pro 2020 in order to start a service (automated server processing) in automatic mode from 1C on the server, which will generate and fill pdf files for our employees.
 Since Acrobat EULA contains a clause restricting the use of Acrobat Pro on the server: 

  • For clarification and without limitation, you must not install or access (either directly or through commands, data, or instructions) the Software: (d) as a component of a system, workflow or service accessible by more than the Permitted Number of users; or (e) for operations not initiated by an individual user (e.g., automated server processing, such as RPA or similar) unless permitted in your separate purchasing document.

    Do we need to register and agree to the Adobe Developer Terms of Use if we are going to use OLE Automation in Acrobat Pro for internal needs only?

You need to conform to the Acrobat EULA since the developer must use SOME copy of Acrobat at run time. This is subject to that user's license, which forbids sharing the software with others. So, absolutely forbidden. It's also technically unsuitable for use in a service.

Hi,

 

You would need to look at a different solution, Acrobat is a desktop tool for use on the desktop by a user, and has some automation that enables the user to remove some of their work.

 

If you are wanting to use on a server there are a couple of options ( from Adobe) sure there are plenty more which a google would find.
