We have a brand new look! Take a tour with us and explore the latest updates on Adobe Support Community.
We are planning on using PDF Embed API to render the PDF in our application. While navigating through the document rendered, we noticed that blobs are getting downloaded from document cloud. On further inspecting, it looks like a preview of the document is returned from Adobe Document Cloud.
This is conflicting with the details shared in the security document:
Can you please help us clarify this behaviour?
Sorry for being late here. To answer your question rendered PDF is not being stored on Adobe servers and infact it doesn't even reach to Adobe servers, it remains on user machine itself.
To display PDF, we are using URL.createObjectURL (https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/URL/createObjectURL), it generates such blob url and for each URL generated by URL.createObjectURL the browser stores a URL -> Blob mapping internally.
Hope it helps. Let me know if more information is required.
Thanks for detailed answer. This information is sufficient to clear the queries/concerns we had.
