Use "sejda-console <command> -h" for help regarding a specific command

Command specific options

To get more details regarding one specific command, run sejda-console -h <command>

> ./bin/sejda-console -h decrypt
09:39:48.310 Given a collection of encrypted pdf documents and their owner password, creates a decrypted version of each of them.

Example usage: sejda-console decrypt -f /tmp/file1.pdf:secret123 -o /tmp -p decrypted_

Usage: sejda-console decrypt options
	[--compressed] : compress output file (optional)
	--existingOutput -j value : policy to use when an output file with the same name already exists. {overwrite, skip, fail}. Default is 'fail' (optional)
	--files -f value... : pdf files to operate on: a list of existing pdf files (EX. -f /tmp/file1.pdf or -f /tmp/password_protected_file2.pdf:secret123) (required)
	[--help -h] : prints usage information. Can be used to detail options for a command '-h command' (optional)
	--output -o value : output directory (required)
	--outputPrefix -p value : prefix for the output files name (optional)
	--pdfVersion -v value : pdf version of the output document/s {1.2, 1.3, 1.4, 1.5, 1.6 or 1.7}. Default is 1.6. (optional)

Configuring custom logging

By default, the sejda-console logs to STDOUT on level INFO.

Logging settings can be changed by editing the etc/logback.xml file

For example, in order to turn off logging completely, simply comment out the STDOUT appender

<root level="INFO">
	<!-- <appender-ref ref="STDOUT" /> -->
	<!-- <appender-ref ref="FILE" /> -->

Inside the logback.xml file there is an (commented out) example on how to configure the logging to a log file instead of STDOUT.

Configuring memory arguments

By default, the shell interface is configured to use 256Mb memory. If you encounter an OutOfMemoryError you can configure a higher value than the provided default.

On Linux/Mac edit bin/sejda-console


On Windows edit bin/sejda-console.bat
