EPY:Securing Pay Advice PDF Output For BI Publisher (Doc ID 2587756.1)

Last updated on JUNE 22, 2022

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise HCM Payroll for North America - Version 9.2 to 9.2 [Release 9]
PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.55 to 8.57 [Release 8.4]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Users are able to bypass the security of the PDF output generated from viewing pay advices and edit the document.
Navigation in HCM : Main Menu > Self Service > Payroll and Compensation > View Paycheck
Report Definition: SSPCAADV

Scenario :
While viewing paycheck in browser (Google Chrome) click print icon, on the print menu select "Save as PDF" as the destination and save the document. Opening this document, it does not retain the security settings that would have carried over if the user selects the option to download the document in the browser. We reviewed the properties of the report definition and found the only way to stop this was to set pdf-no-printing to 'True'. This is not an option for users because it completely removes the print option and we need the users to be able to print their pay advices to a physical printer

Looking for a solution to keep the document secure, while allowing it to be printed.
