Processing of InDesign File prior to check in

I am trying to preprocess InDesign document prior to it being uploaded to a DAM system when the user hits a Save or Check-In.  For instance, I want to access the DOM object for the current InDesign layout to extract a thumbnail (JPG) representation, extract text and metadata, and also generate a PDF preview and push them to the DAM system.  Any guidance on how to accomplish this.

    Sorry, we don't know how to process InDesign file to extract thumbnails or previews for them either, we don't have such expertise, for Adobe Drive, it's a set of client components. it depends on the remote DAM service to provide such image data, if you DAM service doesn't have such ability, I think you can ask some help in InDesigh forum

    Currently, the answer is no, however we are considering about how to extend Adobe Drive to suit such requirement in the future releases
