PDF generation activity

Use the PDF generation activity to automatically create a PDF from a document or from all documents in a folder.

A PDF generation activity creates a PDF from a document using the settings defined in a PDF generation profile. In addition, the activity allows you to configure how certain meta data fields in the generated PDF are populated either from a document field or from a fixed value defined in the configuration of the PDF Generation activity. If you chose Document, the PDF meta data field is populated with the value of a document field. This works only if the document is classified. If the document is not classified, no meta data fields will be written, and only a PDF with no meta data fields is created.

Note This activity is automatically executed at runtime if the Transformation Server is installed on your system. See the Kofax TotalAgilityInstallation Guide.
