Topic: Changing PDF annotation author name to session user id

When we use the document review features of Acrobat in a web application, the username that appears on the Annotations etc is the windows id.

However, a Web application often uses its own username password. (I.e. the system authentication is not used, instead built in application)

In such case when PDFs are reviewed in a web environment in a user session, it would be good to see that the comments/Annotations that are made on the PDF bear the mark of the user logged into the web application.

Is there a solution existing to this?

I am hoping many of you may have come across this problem. Hope somebody has devised a solution, if not at least if somebody has explored some possible workarounds.

The only thing I DON'T want to compromise is; I should not have to change every web page serving PDF's.

Your help is much appreciated.
