The REST settings allows you manage REST API specific settings including connection options, storage directory, number of threads used by processes when making REST API calls to the server.

To view the REST Settings: Go to Preferences Panel > REST Tab

Storage Directory - enter the complete file path to the directory you wish to have all of the REST files stored on the server.

Note: This directory is local to where the server is running not the PAS Manager and so the file path must follow the format set by the OS of the server.

CPU threads - the number of threads (cores) on the server you want to be used by REST processes. The number to the right of the field will display the total number of cores available on the server.

Allow Origin - Setting that lets you access REST services from another domain.  It will set the value of the "Access-Control-Allow-Origin" response header.

Signature Information

Format: The format to be used when encrypting the signature

Signature - A digital signature contains encrypted information that is unique to the signer so it cannot be forged. The signer’s certificate or issuing third-party Certificate Authority will need to be trusted by the user receiving the PDF in order for the signature to be considered valid. Once signed, if the document is modified in any way the signature will no longer be considered valid.

Certifying Signature - A certified signature provides additional document security options to prevent the document from being modified. When choosing certifying signature, a combo box will show, allowing to specify which changes are permitted on the certified document.

Reason - Select a reason the document was signed from the list from the below options

Location - Enter additional location details

Contact Information - Enter additional contact information for the signature
