An error has occurred when adobe document services(ADS) was launched

Issue: End user faced some problem with ADS configuration and he not able to view pdf forms from front end.

Solution: Whatever the issue with ADS, it will come under only one master SAP Note 944221.PFB

944221 – Error analysis for problems in form processing

In my case i have followed the  same steps mentioned in the SAP note.

* FP_TEST_00 failed to connect ADS and followed by FP_CHECK_DESTINATION_SERVICE destination test program try to connect through web but it was failed.

* When i checked on both the services in SICF it is active and looks good but the port number used for http is missing in SMICM tcode.

*I have dynamically created the port number for http and also set the proper parameter in RZ10 so that restart of ICM will take effect the new & correct parameter.

*When i test on reports mentioned in the SAP note works fine without any issues even the user also confirmed.

Please let me know in case of any doubt on ADS concepts.

Thanks & Regards,

ADS: com.adobe.ProcessingException: com.adobe.Processin(200101)

Error: Interactive forms not working in SAP, while executing interactive forms, you will receive the below error code.

‘ADS: com.adobe.ProcessingException: com.adobe.Processin(200101)’


Refer Master SAP Note:944221

Point Number: 5 is the solution for our interactive forms issues.

You can refer the child SAP note:736902

‘You want to use Adobe Interactive Forms and you require a credential, as described in the configuration guide, to complete the configuration. Bear in mind that the credential
is required only if you have interactive forms (forms in
which the user can enter data). For print forms, the
credential is not required.’

Open an SAP customer message under the component BC-SRV-FP-ICF. In the message text, write that you require a credential for the Adobe Interactive Forms scenarios. In the message, include an e-mail address to which the credentials can be sent. The persons responsible will then contact you directly.
Note that only one credential can be assigned for each customer number. The credential is valid for all Adobe Document Services installations for this customer number.

Steps to update the credential into visual administrator:

1.Choose cluster tab if needed, then expand server node.

2.Also expand the Document Services Configuration

3.Enter the following:

Type: P12 Record

Alias: ReaderRights

Password: Will be given by SAP

Confirm Password: Will be given by SAP

4.Then browse the credential file and point to the location and go ahead with install.

5.To apply the changes, restart the PDF Manipulation module service. If it is not working,restart java node alone. Sure you will get the interactive forms output.

Please let me know in case of any queries.
