2020.3 Migration Guide | PSPDFKit Server | Web PDF Solutions

This release introduces support for creating and applying redactions.


With the addition of Redaction, you can now add, update, and delete redaction annotations in uploaded documents using the existing annotation APIs. As with any other annotation, redaction annotations are exported to the PDF and Instant JSON files generated for a document. If redaction annotations are present in any of the existing documents in your installation, they will be extracted from the underlying PDF file once the document is accessed.

Please refer to the detailed Redaction for Server guide to learn more.

Other Changes

In addition to Redaction, the search API now accepts the same search strategies as the API for creating redaction annotations does: text, regex, and preset.

The /info endpoint that was marked as deprecated has been removed in this release. Also, the API explorer available from the Server dashboard is now officially out of beta.

For a complete list of changes, check out the Server changelog.
