Content Services: Dependencies for indexing different types of content

Indexing of content in LiveCycle Content Services 9 depends on different LiveCycle ES2 components and services. Here are a few important prerequisites:

  • Indexing of PDF files (except for dynamic PDF forms) requires the Assembler service, which is part of all LiveCycle ES2 installations.
  • Indexing of dynamic PDF files requires LiveCycle Output 9. If Output is not installed, the FormDataIntegration service, available on all LiveCycle ES2 installations, is used instead. However, in such cases, for dynamic PDFs created in Acrobat, only the form data is indexed. The form design is left unindexed.
  • Indexing of Microsoft Word 2007/2010 files (.docx) requires PDF Generator 9 (the GeneratePDF service).
Additionally, files protected by LiveCycle Rights Management 9 are not indexed.

Just-in-time provisioning of LiveCycle users

Beginning with LiveCycle ES2 Service Pack 2 (9.0.0.2), LiveCycle supports just-in-time provisioning of users that don’t yet exist in User Management. Just-in-time (JIT) provisioning creates new users dynamically in User Management once an authentication provider has successfully authenticated their credentials. Additionally, relevant roles and groups are assigned on-the-fly to the new user.

We have published a new TechNote that you can read to understand and implement this feature. This TechNote discusses the following:

  • The need for JIT user provisioning
  • How to implement JIT user provisioning
  • JIT user provisioning: Behind the scenes

LiveCycle ES2 Service Pack 2 available for download!

We recently released LiveCycle ES2 Service Pack 2 (SP2), a significant update to the LiveCycle server components. You can access the download page here. To download the service pack, you’ll need to log in using your Adobe ID and agree with the EULA.

The updated LiveCycle ES2 documentation is now live at the LiveCycle Developer Center. The Service Pack 2 ReadMe (PDF) describes how you can install the service pack. The ReadMe also lists the many customer-reported issues that were addressed in this service pack.
