We would like to know if Syncfusion's word & excel framework for Xamarin supports protected documents i.e., IRM(Information Right Management) policed documents.

Using the framework will we be able to open right protected documents.

Hi Navinchander,

Currently we doesn’t have support to open IRM ( Information Right Management ) policed Word and Excel documents.

Regarding Word document:
Essential DocIO provided support to protect the Word document with “Restrict editing” option (as mentioned in below screenshot).


Please refer the below documentation link to restrict a Word document from editing using DocIO:

Regarding Excel document:
Essential XlSIO provided support to protect the Excel document in below options.  

Protection Options  
UG documentation link  
Encrypt with Password.  
Protect Workbook structure  
Protect Current Sheet  

Could you please share us the protected Word and Excel documents which used at your end, we will check on the protection options used in that documents and it will be more helpful to consider your scenario as high priority while implementing the feature.
