PrintJobs

A step that is based on this step template uses the printer and job scheduling properties to assign the job to a printer.
  • If the job is in PDF format and you have a PDF printer defined in the system, the PrintJobs step can send the job to the PDF printer.
  • If the job is in AFP format and you have the AFP Support feature installed, the PrintJobs step passes it to the Ricoh ProcessDirector printer driver component for printing. The print driver component can send the job to an AFP printer or transform the job to PCL format and send it to a PCLOut printer.
  • If the job is in another format, configure the workflow to assign the job to a Passthrough printer so that the PrintJobs step can run the command defined in the Printer command property of the Passthrough printer.

Usage notes

  • You cannot copy or delete this step template.
  • If you add a step based on this step template to a workflow used to process PDF jobs and send them to a Ricoh PDF or Custom PDF printer, make sure that you specify the drive letter of the application server that the printer is running on and the file path to the header and trainer configuration files. For example, the application server uses Z: to connect to the primary computer’s /aiw directory, and the file paths to the configuration files on the primary computer are /aiw/aiw1/control_files/banner_pages/header.jrxml and /aiw/aiw1/control_files/banner_pages/trailer.jrxml. Change the values to Z:\aiw1\control_files\banner_pages\header.jrxml and Z:\aiw1\control_files\banner_pages\trailer.jrxml.
  • When you open the properties for this step template in the Workflow tab, the values for the Media and Output bins properties include all of the media objects and output bins that are defined. If you open the properties for this step template on the Administration page, you can limit the list of values so it only includes the media or output bins that are supported or ready.
  • When you open the properties for this step template in the Workflow tab, the values for the X offset and Y offset properties are in inches. If you open the properties for this step template on the Administration page, they are in inches or millimeters.
  • The default values for the Header page configuration file and Trailer page configuration file properties change in the step template when you install the AFP Support feature. If you add this step template to a workflow that sends jobs to a Ricoh PDF or Custom PDF printer after you install the AFP Support feature, change the values of those properties to point to JRXML files to generate banner pages. The values are not updated in steps that were added to workflows before the AFP Support feature was installed.
