Now Available! Our integration with Adobe Acrobat extends Microsoft Information Protection to PDFs

As of today, users for Azure Information Protection and other Microsoft Information Protection solutions can now use Adobe Reader to read labeled and protected content.  Both Microsoft and Adobe are encouraged and excited about this collaboration. Please view the following blogs, on how to use the Adobe reader integration and where to download.

How to use the Adobe Integration

What is the new PDF IRM support?

Download the new General Available integration

Looking forward to your feedback


Just downloaded and gave it a try and can't open a protected PDF with the Acrobat Reader preview and now it won't even display the cover page.

Opening the same document with Azure Information Protection Viewer works.


First it gives me a prompt asking for my email address, then if I cancel it does not fall back to AD RMS on premise and will not open the document.

We use an on-prem AD RMS.

Then when trying to give it my email address it fails with this:

LicenseParser::GetXmlNodeFromXpath - XPath returned no results



You need to install Mobile Device Extensions on the ADRMS server for the Adobe integration to work. 



Okay, that's new to me. Do you happen to have a documentation about this ?


the SDK that is being used for the Adobe Integration leverages REST interfaces. Which is why  you need the Mobile Device extensions to be installed. 

Here are some links that are useful for installing Mobile Device extensions in your ADRMS cluster.

Downloaded and tested, works fine so far. Thanks!

do you know Visual Markings (AIP label config- watermarks etc.) is available or going to be available for pdf as well ?

We recently migrated from AD RMS to Azure RMS. In our setup we use Azure RMS in combination with SharePoint Online and SharePoint 2013. Our goal is that we protect documents by enabling IRM on document libraries.


Will this setup also be supported? I downloaded the public preview and the latest AIP client but it doesn't seem to work.

When I use the preview - is says it will expire 12/31/2018 - any idea when it will be in general release?
