    Dear Somya,

    To start with the Adobe interactive forms, the following things should take in considerations

    1. ADS configurations to be completed in EP server.

    2. NWDS to be installed on client machine

    3. Raise an OSS message to SAP to get the adobe credentials(Note 736902 - Adobe Credentials)

    4. Download the Adobe live cycle designer from service market place and install in

    all client machines.

    5. Intall adobe reader in the client machines.

    Regards

    Ponnusamy

    Hi,

    To use the ads service u need to configure ur J2EE server for the ads configuration or settings. u need to create an ads user on the server.

    heres the pdf which provides guide lines for configuring ads settings on the server

    https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/go/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/f03414f8-d4ce-2a10-d4b6-ab201b329d98

    then u also need to install adobe lifecycle designer to design ur adobe forms

    • had posted the wrong link for configuring ads settings its corrected now.

    regards

      hi sowmya,

      ADS configurations that has to be done......

      Server Side Requirements

      Follow the steps mentioned below. This includes step by step procedures on Server Side Installation and Configuration of the Netweaver Application Server and Adobe Document Services.

       SAP Netweaver 04s Sneak Preview

       Configure Adobe document services.

       Creating ADS User

      Enter the following URL in the browser

      http://<server>:<port>/ index.html

      Select User Management -> Create User. In general user define Login id, password & last name, select language as English, check activate accessibility feature and security policy as Technical User. Finally Save.

       Select security model and configure web service ( Basic Authentication / SSL)

      Basic Authentication: You can go ahead with the Basic Authentication. For this you need not configure anything specific as they are configured by default with NW04s installation

       Install and configure Reader Rights credentials (interactive forms scenario) Use the certificate available in the zip file which is required by SAP Web AS for assigning usage rights

       Installing a PKCS #12 Credential

       Copy the credential file (filename.pfx) to the /usr/sap/<SAPSID>/SYS/global/AdobeDocumentServices/TrustManagerService/trust/credentials directory

       Configure the Credential Attributes:

       Logon to the Visual Admin

       On the Cluster tab, choose Server - > Services -> Document Services Configuration.

       On the Runtime tab, select Credentials.

       From the Type field, select the type of credential you are configuring (P12 record)

       In the Alias field, enter the alias u2018ReaderRightsu2019

       Choose Browse to search for the name of the credential and then Select

       In the sha1 field, enter the sha1 value. This value is available in the text file which is found along with the certificate in the zip file.

       In the password field, enter the password you received along with the credential. In this case, you can enter your own password or the same value in the text file.

       Confirm the password and click Add.

      The Credential will now be available at the top of the page as a registered credential.

       Restart the service PDF Manipulation Module for changes to take effect.

       Logon to Visual Admin

       On the Cluster tab, choose server -> Services -> PDF Manipulation Module

       Right click and stop the service.

       Once stopped, right click and start the service

       Checking the user and password (optional)

      This is a test for checking whether the entries for the user, security role, and passwords are correct in a system that uses Basic Authentication

       Enter the following URL in the browser

      http://<server>:<port>/AdobeDocumentServices/Config

       The web page of the web service AdobeDocumentServices is displayed. Choose Test.

       Choose rpdata (testu2026)

       Choose the Send button without entering any parameters

       Enter the user name and password of the ADS User which you created in user management

      User Name: Login-id

      Password: <Your admin password>

       Choose Submit

      if the configuration is correct, the system displays the version number in the response area.

       Configure the ADSUser (optional)

      The ADSUser is configured by default during installation. However, if your application does not work stating user does not exist or password expired, then you can follow the steps mentioned below to reconfigure or reset the password for the ADSUser

       Logon to Visual Admin

       On the Cluster tab, choose Server -> Services - > Security Provider.

       Choose User Management and then the Tree tab.

       Select ADSCallers -> ADSUser

       In the Authentication area, you have Password field to enter your new password.

       In the Authentication area, now select No password change required.

       Set up Licensing Service

      If you are in need to create new form designs or customize previously developed form designs then you need to acquire the license. Refer to SAP Note 750784.

       Logon to Visual Admin

       On the Cluster tab, choose Server -> Services - > Document Services License Service.

       In the Serial number box, enter the license key provided by SAP for Adobe Document Services and click on SET.
