Dear Dr. Narendra Kumar,

We have tested your query at IIMK and we found it's possible to have
restricted access to the source documents, both document-wise as well as

1. For a document level authentication/restriction, we gave the following
lines in its collection configuration file (collect.cfg):
authenticate document
private_documents HASH01e159f46d1887b4d53fb56e (*the document)
auth_groups administrator
These lines should come before the collection meta (*shown below):
collectionmeta collectionname [l=en] "PDF Collection"

2. For a collection, we gave the argument 'collection' against
'authenticate', and omited the second line/next line.
It was working o.k.

3. For suppressing the source document icon in the title page along with
its html icon, we gave the following in the Format Features:

We removed the [srcicon] from VList, and modified the Document Text as

<td valign="top">[link][icon][/link]</td>
<td valign="top">[ex.srclink]{Or}{[ex.thumbicon]}[ex./srclink]</td>
<td valign="top">[highlight]

Document Text:

It worked. Please try this and let us know.
Best wishes.
