Support for PDF conversion of documents (Word and Excel) protected with Microsoft Azure Information Protection

From a topic from September 2018 (Azure Information Protection), it was stated the Aspose.Words does not support Microsoft Azure Information Protection. The last update on that topic was from April 2019. Is it still true that Aspose.Words or Cells does not support the handling of documents with that protection in so far as PDF conversion? Thank you in advance for your answer.

We regret to share with you that there is no news available on WORDSNET-17433 and CELLSNET-46335 at the moment. We will inform you via this forum thread once there is an update available on these features.


Regarding the ticket (logged earlier as “CELLSNET-46335”), we are afraid we could not support this feature. The files are encrypted, but there is no EncryptedInfo part which contains encryption algorithm and password settings in the file. It seems MS Excel will get EncryptedInfo from Microsoft Azure Information protection services after authority.
