Adobe Document Cloud provides a web-based installer and related tools to deploy the Adobe Document Cloud PDF Experience for Office 365.

Supported browsers

The Adobe Document Cloud PDF Experience for Office 365 is supported on all modern browsers such as Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft Edge, Chrome, Firefox, and Safari.

Note:

The Document Cloud integration will not work if third-party cookies are blocked in the browser. Ensure that third-party cookies are unblocked for the browser you are using.

Problem: Internet Explorer security zone protected mode issue.

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.

Solution

To fix this issue, make sure that you either follow solution 1 or solution 2 as mentioned below: 

Note:

The administrator has to enforce this configuration for all the users, else the users have to configure the browser settings manually.

Solution 1: None of the server URLs are listed in the trusted zone.

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.

Solution 2: Configure your browser by adding all the server URL entries to the trusted sites zone.

To add a site to the Internet trusted sites zone perform the following steps:

  1. 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.

  2. Click the Security tab in the Internet Options dialog box.

  3. Click Trusted Sites > Sites.

  4. Add *.microsoftonline.com to the Trusted Zone if it is not already added.

  5. Add the below Adobe server address to the Trusted Zone if it is not already added.
    *.adobe.com
    *.acrobat.com
    *.adobe.io
    *.adobelogin.com

  6.  Close the Trusted Sites dialog box. Click OK.

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.

Add the site https://dcsi.adobe.io to the list of exceptions in the browser's privacy settings. To add the site, do the following:

  1. In the Edge browser, click the options () icon in the top-right corner, and then click Settings.

    Edge settings
  2. Click the menu () icon > Privacy And Services.
