Credential for Adobe Interactive Forms ?

Hi Everyone,

I just installed Adobe Document Server in order to use Adobe Forms in my WebDynpro App.

The config guide says something about a "Credential"... Is it a license ?

I create a message to request that credential, but I would like to know if somebody has implemented this already.

Thanks guys,

    A credential is one component of the so-called public key technology, which is basically a security mechanism used to restrict access to, for example, documents to authorized persons only. The installation itself is a quick and painless process.

    The license, i.e. the fee you pay for using the software, is separate from this technical feature.

    Hello Diego,

    as Markus outlined there is a difference between the Credential and the License Key. The Credential is required for every ADS installation to enable the Reader Rights functionality and is free of charge to SAP customers (see OSS Note 736902)

    The license key is only required if you want to use the Interactive Forms based on Adobe software in a production environment for

    - Deploying your own custom-developed interactive form templates

    - Deploying modified SAP delivered interactive forms by adding or changing field connections to the SAP system

    To generate print forms (non-interactive) or run the system in a development/test environment you do not require a license key

    However if licensing is required for your production deployment of the Adobe document services please contact your SAP account manager.
