Disable the encryption of created PDF Dokuments


Hello To all,

We use Adobe Forms to generate a Output of some Data as a PDF Document . These forms
are not interactive.

We need the functionality to merge two separate generated PDF Documents within SAP.

At the moment we use PDFBox to merge the previously generated files stored at the SAP
Application server.

Unfortunately this only works for unencrypted PDF Files.

And again unfortunately we can’t create unencrypted Files.

For some unknown reason our Files always contains an Encryption

(encryption means restricted, printing, Copy and paste and so on, even if everything is allowed).

the footer Line of the PDF shows this encryption line:

<</Size16/Root 1 0 R/Encrypt 13 0 R/Info 12 0 R/ID[<27…30C4><73...BDC3>]>>

We tried to
disable the Encryption without any positive result.

In the SAP GUI Adobe Life cycle designer there is no tap in the Options.

And the parameters of the function module to generate the PDF doesn’t work.

DATA gv_print_options TYPE sfpoutputparams.

gv_print_options-noprint ='X'.

gv_print_options-PDFCHANGESRESTRICTED = ''.



ie_outputparams = gv_print_options.


Is there another way to disable the Encryption?

Or is there a way to know the password for this encryption?

Kind regards

Markus K.
