We are a small media publishing website.

 

We have tested the embed function of adobe using this: 

https://documentcloud.adobe.com/view-sdk-demo/index.html#/view/FULL_WINDOW/Bodea%20Brochure.pdf

 

It works great, and we would now like to utilize this in our website. We just want to publish pdfs, and we dont need anyone to be able to sign or fill in a form, just embedding documents using iframe. What product do we use for this, and how to we upload, get started?

 

Thanks!

It sounds like you already know the product to use, PDF Embed. I'd start on the website (https://www.adobe.io/apis/documentcloud/dcsdk/pdf-embed.html), and click the blue "Get Credentials" button to get your key. Then start with the docs for more information. I can definitely help more, but start there first.

Thanks. Have done that, got credentials, but that is where i get stuck. Is there then a product that i use to upload the doc and create an embed as per the test link function? After getting the credentials there doesnt seem to be any link or instructions about how to upload/get the embed link. 

 

Thanks!!

Ah, so to be clear, you host your own PDFs. They are either on your site, or on another site where you can use their PDFs, but the 'hosting' of PDFs is on you. If you've got an existing web site, you can literally just put them in a subdirectory.

 

To use the Embed API, you would edit an HTML page and include the code our docs cover. Does that make more sense?

Ah, yes, that is my mistake then. I thought this was a service where it was combined hosting and API. Does Adobe have a product that is like that?

Not really, no. If you don't want your PDFs with your web site (which is what I'd recommend), you can look at other solutions like S3 for example where you can host the files. But again - you'll need to ensure you've got CORS set up right so that your code on your domain can load the PDF. I'd strongly suggest just keeping it on the same server.
