Is it possible to open a AIP protected PDF in SharePoint/Teams?  If so, can can this be achieved?

  1. I can open PDF, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files without AIP in SharePoint/Teams with no issue. 
  2. I can open Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files with AIP in SharePoint/Teams with no issue. 
  3. I can open AIP protected PDF's in Adobe without issue. 
  4. When I try to open a PDF with AIP in SharePoint/Teams I get an message saying "This is a protected document.  You can view it using a supported PDF reader app".

Since I can open the same PDF file without AIP in SharePoint/Teams I would assume that SharePoint/Teams are supported PDF reader app's.  As soon as I enable AIP on the PDF file, upload it to SharePoint/Teams, and try to open it I get the attached error.

 

So my question stands.  Is it possible to open a AIP protected PDF in SharePoint/Teams?  If so, can can this be achieved?

 

Any insight into my issue would be of great help.  I have asked in Microsoft Discord-Cloud Services and Reddit-r/MicrosoftTeams and nobody has replied.
