I am working on an AutoVue integration with Oracle UCM and wanting to do dynamic watermarking for PDFs based on a various inputs.
PDFWatermark is being used to statically stamp a few watermarks but will not handle true dynamic (per request) watermarking.
After digging around in the trace logs for UCM I can not find the entry point for AutoVue to get the document. It seems to be bi-passing all filters and even services. Can this be possible?
Any insight into how to dynamically watermark within the context of an AutoVue integration would be helpful.
I'm more than happy to provide any additional information that is necessary.
Thank you very much.
It seems to be bypassing all service and filters. I am wanting to hook into UCM before the AutoVue Server retrieves the file to do Dynamic manipulation of the file. There are a lot of customizations available but it's difficult to figure out where this exact transaction is taking place and how to interact with it.
Can someone please help? Otherwise, AutoVue might not be the solution we are looking for. Any insight would be appreciated greatly. Thank you.
What exactly are you trying to do? Do you want to "swap" the original document with a watermarked one?
I am not familiar with the dynamic watermarking that you described above, could you please elaborate?
Would it be acceptable to load the original document and add a watermark as an AutoVue markup?
When you say that you're working on an AutoVue integration with Oracle UCM, are you creating your own from scratch, or are you using the pre-built Oracle VueLink for UCM? The latter is certainly the recommended approach.
Regarding the watermark, are you interested in a View-mode watermark (one that shows up on top of the drawing when viewing the drawing in AutoVue), or a Print watermark (one that shows up on top of the printed output)?
Please take a look at the viewing and config guide
Watermarks in View Mode
Watermarks Codes and Predefined Value
and see if that is what you are looking
