Securing pdf by scheduling webi Report (PdfWriter.AllowCopy)

triying to secure the pdf-instances of report scheduling in BO trough deactivating the PDF-SecurityOption "PdfWriter.AllowCopy"

publication extensions should offer this possibility to secure pdf-files by scheduling. Unfortunately only for Crystal Reports files. But we need it for Web Intelligence docs ..


SAP also offers an SDK sample for this purpose ..

[SAP Sample Code: Java Enterprise BE12 Create-Publication CR-PDF |www.sdn.sap.com/irj/boc/index?rid=/library/uuid/9074bb6f-3857-2c10-bcab-be13735881d4]


the interesting part of this sample is the following ..



mergeOption.securityOption = new SecurityOption(PDF_USER_PASSWORD, PDF_OWNER_PASSWORD, 
PdfWriter.AllowCopy| PdfWriter.AllowPrinting | PdfWriter.AllowScreenReaders)



Since it is working only for Crystal Reports, The question is:


is there a possibility to manipulate code in order to generate a PDF-Plugin for only deactivating the security Option "PdfWriter.AllowCopy" before publication delivery .. ??

How can i realize that .. ?


Thanks ..
