It has been announced last September at the Ignite 2018 conference and in preview since then.

Now, the integration of Acrobat Reader with Azure Information Protection is now GA.

To take advantage of it, you have few things to do:

If you get an error asking for administrator approval , contact your IT administrators to approve the Adobe App-Id cad2910c-3b55-4610-ba7e-dda581063c91


This situation may occur when the “Users can consent to apps accessing company data on their behalf” setting is set to No


Administrator can approve the application by using the following URL<please add your tenant here –>/oauth2/authorize?response_type=code&client_id=cad2910c-3b55-4610-ba7e-dda581063c91&redirect_uri=https%3A%2F%2Flocalhost%3A44307%2F&prompt=admin_consent



Once all of it is done, next time you open an AIP protected PDF file you will have to sign in


You may have to approve PDF reader to access your information


Once the protected PDF file is open you will notice is will be shown as Secured and in the document properties the Security tab is showing Microsoft Azure Information Protection as the Security Method
