4.5 Changing the Contexts That Documents are Sealed to

This section covers the following topics:

4.5.1 About Changing Contexts

If you have sufficient rights, you can change the context that a document is sealed to. When doing this, you can choose to retain the original document (in a different location or with a different name), or you can overwrite the original sealed document.

During the lifecycle of a specific document, it might be appropriate for it to be sealed to different contexts at different times. For example, if you have a document sealed to a "work-in-progress" context (see Section 1.4, "About Contexts"), you might want to change it to a "published" context. Similarly, a document that is highly sensitive at the beginning of its lifecycle might become less sensitive after public announcements have been made.

4.5.2 Changing the Context That a Document is Sealed To


To change the context that a document is sealed to, you need the Copy To right for the current context and the Seal right for the destination context. See Section 1.3, "About Rights". You are limited to changing to certain trusted contexts. If there are any trusted contexts that you can change to, they are listed at the bottom of the Rights tab of the Oracle IRM Desktop Control Panel, in the Trusted Destinations section.

Use the following procedure to change the context to which a document is sealed:

  1. Right-click the sealed document in Windows Explorer.

    If the sealed document is represented by an icon on your Microsoft Desktop, you can right-click that icon instead.

  2. From the menu, select Reseal To.

  3. In the Select Context dialog, select the context that you want to seal the new version to, then click OK.

  4. Do one of the following:

    • To create a copy of the document sealed to the new context, change the directory or the file name, then click Save.

    • To replace the original document, click Save.
