Signing locked documents

When we upload locked PDFs for signing, are there any options for packaging or do we need to download the signature separately?
Do you have any sample requests for this?

Hi Marius. We are a bit unsure what you mean by locked PDF. Could you please elaborate?

If the document is password protected it is not possible to package the result to PAdES.

Hope this helped and have a nice evening!

It is password protected, so I’m wondering what the alternative is?
Do I need to download the signature as a separate file, and which format is it?
Maybe I’m not reading the documentation right, but I couldn’t figure out how to do it.

Hi Marius. There is no alternative. You cannot use password protected PDF files at all. The only option is to remove the password protection before the document is uploaded.
