    Is there any way to add security over the published output from a help file

    Alchemex Level 1

      I have Robohelp 10 and am producing Multiscreen HTML5 for online and .chm HTML files for offline help. 

      I would like to know if there is any way to add security over the published output. 

      Besides adding access permissions on the server hosting the help file, is there any way to stop unauthorized access to the help files themselves? 

      Ideal would be to only allow access to the help file from within the software we develop. What is the best way to achieve this?

          Other Single Source Layouts refers to outputs such as JavaHelp so I have moved this to RoboHelp HTML.

           

          Depends what you mean by "authorised" and where the help is. If you mean any employee of a company and the help is on a server only accessible to them, job done. If it is on the web, then anyone can access it unless your developers add some security. There is nothing built into RoboHelp so it's down to your developers and permissions to access the location.

           

          CHMs should be on the local drive of the user.

           

          Hope that helps.
