Adobe Interactive Forms - ADS Configuration

Hello experts,

I'm setting up my CE7.2 system to use Adobe Forms. Now I configged my ADSUser and tested it through WebService Navigator using com.adobe/AdobeDocumentServces_com.adobe_AdobeDocumentServicesVi. It was ok and received my version number.

Now when I try to run my process, my process task (which is the Human Activity with the form) has the status Inactive. When I try "Resend form" I get an error. (see image below).

Following image is of my log files with error's on my ReaderRights, and top error is based on the "Resend Form".

Q1: Would the only problem be the Credentials I need to request? Or am I missing something else..

As I am a only an IT student, I'm looking into how I can request these credentials at the moment.

Q2: According to http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw73/helpdata/de/4b/95ae5426f26e83e10000000a421937/content.htm I would only need credentials when having an 'Interactive' form. How do I make a ViewOnly form then?

Q3 Is it possible to have a step in your process which only sends a pdf with information and moves to the next process step automaticly without the need of a 'Submit' in the pdf? I'm thinking of a Mail Notification Activity here.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks. For the other questions, you have to configurate your system to be able to use Adobe Offline Forms (see http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw73/helpdata/de/4b/95ae5426f26e83e10000000a421937/frameset.htm for more details)

Hi Wouter,

if you only want to send a PDF without any user response, you do not need to use a human activity.

I think the notification activity doesn't support attachments, so you would need to write a piece of java code to send out the PDF via mail, and then call it from the process via an automated activity.
