Before installing the AEM forms add-on package, ensure that the installation path of the AEM Quickstart does not contain any spaces.
Out of the box, the DocAssurance service is not available for use. To use the DocAssurance service, bootdelegate the RSA and BouncyCastle libraries installed along with AEM forms package. Perform the following steps to bootdelegate the libraries:
The DocAssurance service can apply usage rights to PDF documents. To apply usage rights to PDF documents, setup certificates for Reader Extensions. Perform the following steps to setup certificates:
Add the Key Store Password, Private Key Password, and Private Key Alias that is associated with the certificate to the respective fields. Click Submit.
To determine the Private Key Alias of a certificate, you can use the Java keytool command: keytool -list -v -keystore [keystore-file] -storetype pkcs12
In the Key Store Password and Private Key Password fields, specify the password provided with the certificate file.
On moving to production environment, replace your evaluation credentials with production credentials. Ensure that you delete your old Reader Extensions credentials, before updating an expired or evaluations credential.
In case, you have a publish farm, comprised of multiple non-clustered publish instances, you need to create a reverse replication agent for each Publish instance as mentioned in Steps 1-9. For each such reverse replication agent, Title and Name should be significant and unique, so the identification of the corresponding Publish instance can be simpler. Each such replication agent has a different URI in the Transport tab pointing to a particular Publish instance. For multiple publish instances, you can also create replication agents by copying the default agent publish and then editing Name and URI in transport tab of the created agent. If you are not using the default Replication Agent, disable it, so an unnecessary replication attempt can be avoided.
To use AES 256 encryption for PDF files, obtain and install the Java Cryptography Extension (JCE) Unlimited Strength Jurisdiction Policy files. Replace the local_policy.jar and US_export_policy.jar files in the jre/lib/security folder. For example, if you are using Sun JDK, copy the downloaded files to the [JAVA_HOME]/jre/lib/security folder.
The assembler service depends on the Reader Extensions service, Signature service, Forms service, and Output service. Perform the following steps to verify that the required services are up and running:
