What are Postconversion Scripts?

Postconversion scripts are VBScripts or JScripts executed after the conversion (refer to What Are the Conversion Phases? for an overview of the various conversion phases). Preconversion scripts have full access to the extracted text and HTML from the document, as well as its metadata; while postconversion scripts modify the extracted information of the converted documents, which is not available in preconversion. Postconversion enables the addition, rejection or modification of the metadata from a document by using the DocumentInfo Object. It can also override the extracted text or HTML in order to send it to CES or reject a document based on the results of the conversion.
