File system mapping file for job tickets

The sample system_map.cfg found in /aiw/aiw1/samples/config/ translates the file paths in JDF job tickets to the file paths of a mounted file system. You can copy this file into the /aiw/aiw1/control_files/config/ directory and edit it as necessary.

Each line of the file system mapping file is in this format:

client_file_path;host_file_path

client_file_path

The client file path is the file path as it appears in the job ticket. It must include at least one backslash (\) or slash (/) character. It can include an asterisk (*) as a wild card representing the drive letter.

host_file_path

The host file path is the file path where the Ricoh ProcessDirector server can locate input files. It must include at least one backslash (\) or slash (/) character. It must not include wild cards.

This line converts any Windows file path to a Linux or AIX file path:

*:\;/

Example

Suppose that the file system mapping file contains these lines:

C:\production\siteA;/BankFiles/prod
*:\production\siteA\test;/BankFiles/test
*:\;/

The job ticket refers to a file called C:\production\siteA\test\justAtest.pdf. Ricoh ProcessDirector searches for justAtest.pdf in these directories:

  1. /BankFiles/prod/test/
  2. /BankFiles/test/
  3. /production/siteA/test/
  4. The staging location of the hot folder input device
