Automatically enter PDF password & Change security settings

Post by Danp » Mon Apr 12, 2021 6:01 pm

Hi All,

We receive lots of PDF files that all have the same password. Is it possible to add the known password to a action or global change to then change the security settings?

Thanks
Dan

Well, not in PitStop Server.
But you can use Switch Core Engine and a CLI tool like pdftk to add or remove a password.

Or maybe you can find another CLI tool to change the security settings.

Thanks for the responses, I'll try to see what we can do with switch.
