I have a situation where a BOM was changed on a PDF generated from EPDM. Is there a way to add security like read only to the PDF convert task?
Thanks for any help.
I don't think there is any way to do so.
But what you can do is make the folder read only or add some permission restrictions to the folder where the pdf files are saved after the convert task.
Thanks & Regards,
There is no way to prevent the file from being overwritten - if you restrict permissions the file won't get created in the first place.
The best you can do with the default script is create new versions of files instead of overwriting them, at least then you could roll back.
I suppose you could modify the script to check if the file exists and if it does you'd abort the task.
After they are generated - Is there a way to use Adobe Acrobat or something like that and set a whole bunch of files so PDF cannot be modified?
The best way could be creating a folder and giving a few users read & write access to the folder.
Users with read & write access would be able to perform the convert task & save pdf inside the folder.
The users who don't have permission would not be able save or modify anything inside the folder.
If you have Adobe Acrobat Pro X, this may help:
