Merging PDFs if one Secured

We have a process that merges many pdfs. In one case we get an error because one of the pdfs is secured with a password and doesn’t allow assembly, copying, or extraction. Is there a way that these pdfs can still be merged into the rest of the pdfs?

Hi Vinny,

Thanks for using our API’s.

In order to manipulate existing PDF files, the API first reads the file contents and in case the file is encrypted, the API requires password so that its contents can be parsed. However you may consider determining the files which are encrypted and skip them from concatenation process, so that all remaining files are concatenated.
