Adobe Document Cloud provides a web-based installer and related tools to deploy the Adobe PDF file handler for Office 365.
The Adobe Document Cloud PDF handler is supported on all modern browsers like Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft Edge, Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.
A limitation in Internet Explorer and Edge browser is the security zone protected mode issue where two servers are configured with different security zone or protected mode settings.
A security zone issue arises if your Microsoft Office 365 server and the Document Cloud server are in two different Internet Explorer security zones and one of those zones is running in protected mode and the other zone is not running in protected mode. In this configuration, the Microsoft server is not able to communicate with the Adobe server and the session cookie fails to validate your session.
The administrator has to enforce this configuration for all the users, else the users have to configure the browser settings manually.
Make sure that none of the server URLs are listed in the trusted zone. If it is listed, remove it from the trusted zones list.
To add a site to the Internet trusted sites zone perform the following steps:
- From the Tools menu, select Internet Options. In Internet Explorer versions 9 and 10, select the gear icon below the search bar to access this menu.
- Click the Security tab in the Internet Options dialog box.
- Click Trusted Sites > Sites.
- Add *.microsoftonline.com to the Trusted Zone if it is not already added.
- Add the below Adobe server address to the Trusted Zone if it is not already added.
- Close the Trusted Sites dialog box. Click OK.
