Base permissions to make ebook display in ebook reader in mobile/tablet

Jul 31, 2012 1:21 PM

Tags: #permissions #mobile #tablet #base #acs

Hi,

 

We are trying to copy fulfilled book in ADE to paired nook reader in samsung tablet which has the following base permissions.

  

<permissions xmlns="http://ns.adobe.com/adept">

          <display>

          <device/>

          </display>

          <display>

          <deviceType>storage</deviceType>

          </display>

          <display>

          <deviceType>mobile</deviceType>

          </display>

          <display>

          <deviceType>standalone</deviceType>

          </display>

          <display>

          <deviceType>tethered</deviceType>

          </display>

          <excerpt>

          <count initial="2" max="" incrementInterval="" />

          </excerpt>

          <print>

          <count initial="2" max="" incrementInterval="" />

          </print>

          <play/>

    </permissions>

 

 

 

It would error saying "No permission to copy document here".

 

Any other ebooks with the following base permissions work fine on the same setup.

 

<permissions xmlns="http://ns.adobe.com/adept">

<display/>

</permissions>

 

We would like to know, is the base permissions correct if we want to restrict viewing only to mobile/tablet devices other than the device where fulfillment was done? If so why would this base permissions not let us copy ebook to view on a tablet?

What changes need to be done to achieve this?

 

Any suggestions or link to one would be very much appreciated.

 

Thanks.

    What did the resulting license look like (if it's an epub then you can unzip it to pull out rights.xml).

    So ADE is right and ACS4 potentialy has a bug.  Since there were only two display permission clauses in the resulting license and not 5.

     

    1.) ADE mac/win are considered standalone device - so adding in standalone without the device restriction effectively negates the device restriction for desktop users.

     

    2.) Outside of testing I have never seen a 'storage' device

     

    You may consider pruning your perms to 

     

    <display>

              <device/>

    </display>

    <display>

              <deviceType>mobile</deviceType>

    </display>

    <display>

              <deviceType>tethered</deviceType>

    </display>

     

     

    and see if that works (make sure to use a different userid/resource id combination in the fulfillment or you will get the merger of the exisiting license rather than the new one.

    So I meant a bug in ACS4 in the way it does fulfillment.  In particular that  fulfillment is stripping the display clauses that don't apply to device being fulfilled to (which is standalone).  I have a vague memory of there being a bug like this, but it's been a while (and I no longer work for Adobe) so I couldn't say for sure.

     

    I would suggest opening up a ACS4 tech support case with your provider to see what they/Adobe says, because I would've expected those clauses to be there.

    What was the resulting permission in the license in the file?

    Thanks...  btw the two different LoanIDs indicate that you fulfilled to a user that you had got a license that was merged with a previous license (you didn't use a new user - or return the old loan first).

     

    I would be worried that it didn't include a clause for tethered (since that will be any non wifi eink device - sony 505, etc...)
