Muhimbi Watermarking on Open Event of PDF documents in SharePoint of RMS enabled libraries


  • Hello Team,

    SharePoint version : SharePoint 2010

    Watermarking is enabled in my library on Open Event.

    The watermark is applied when RMS is disabled but my document is not watermarked when RMS is enabled.

    According to Muhimbi "RMS Encrypts files, meaning
    they are unaccessable by our software"

    Is there any way around?

  • Hi Arvind,

    There may be some security concerns that the watermark cannot be added to documents with RMS enabled.

    You can use different libraries for storing the files, use a library without RMS enabled to store the documents that need to add watermark.

    Best Regards,
