You are correct that there is no Policy Server permission for restricting the number of times a document can be printed.
However, at least one customer has controlled the number of times that a document could be printed by using the Policy Server Java SDK to revoke the document after it has been printed a certain number of times. The SDK includes an Event Handler API that can be used for this purpose.
Yes it can be done.
I developed a plugin specifically to perform this function.
It allows a user to select an existing policy and restrict the number of times printing is allowed.
It is version 1 and not too pretty but it works well.
Please send me an email at email@example.com and I will send you the plugin.
I have received many emails regarding this plugin that I developed some time ago.
Stable version 1 can be downloaded from my website at www.egis.co.za under the support>downloads section.
This version is free with no limitations.
If there are any other addon requirements, feel free to email me and I will do my best to supply you with a solution.
my name is Carlo and i'm working on Livecycle Policy Server. Now i'm working on a way to restrict the number of times of print for a secured file.
In my code, i process the events of "PRINT_HIGH" and "PRINT_LOW" and use a counter that tells me how many times the doc is printed. As i was looking around the adobeforum, i read that you developed a plugin that makes this same thing, so i ask you if is possible to get it, so that i can look for any improvement that surely you made :).
I tried to write to your email or going to your site, but unfortunately they don't work.. can you help me? my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
