Secure PDF

Know the component and how to use it.
SecurePDF allows you to define a password, or specific settings (read only, print, fill in form, etc.) for an existing PDF file.
Take a look at the component's configuration parameters:
  • File Name: name or path of the PDF file that should receive the eventual password, or permissions.
  • Set password: if the option is enabled, the inclusion of a password in the PDF file is allowed to generate a protected document.
  • Password: password to protect the PDF file.
  • Custom permissions: if the option is enabled, several options for access permissions on the PDF file are available; otherwise, the PDF file will be generated with full permissions.
  • Read only: access permission that sets the PDF file as "read-only". If the option is enabled, all other access permissions will be disabled.
  • Assemble document: allows pages to be added, rotated, and removed from the file.
  • Modify: allows you to modify the file.
  • Modify annotations: lets you add or modify text annotations in the file.
  • Extract content: allows you to extract texts and images from the file.
  • Extract for accessibility: lets you extract text and images from the file, for accessibility purposes.
  • Print: allows printing the file.
  • Print degraded: allows for degraded printing of the file.
  • Fill in Form: allows you to fill in forms with interactive fields.
  • Fail On Error: if the option is enabled, the execution of the pipeline with error will be stopped; otherwise, the pipeline execution continues, but the result will show a false value for the “success” property.
