An option to un-redact the document is also available. This option depends on the type of user for un-redacting the document.

A parameter Select User Type defines the type of user when the viewer is initiated.

There are three types of user access: Normal, Super_User, and View_Only.
types of user access

  • NORMAL: If the user type is set to Normal, then the redaction annotations created or modified by the current user can be un-redacted while redactions made by other users remain redacted.
  • SUPER_USER: If the user type is Super_User, then the entire document can be un-redacted and the document has re-rendered with all the redaction annotations displayed editable in transparent grey mode. The Super_User can edit and see through the redactions.
  • VIEW_ONLY: If the user type is View_Only, then the user is not able to un-redact the document.

Once un-redacted, the user can resize or remove the existing redactions and then save it to redact again. Exporting or printing the document produces redacted version of the document.
