Updating custom document properties

Whenever you define new custom document properties or name custom document properties in more than one language, you update custom document properties to make your changes available to Ricoh ProcessDirector.

  • You must use the legacy user interface for this procedure.

Before doing this task, verify that the syntax in the docCustomDefinitions.xml file is correct.

To update custom document properties:
  1. Log in to the primary server as the Ricoh ProcessDirector system user.
    • For Linux/AIX, aiw1 is the default.
    • For Windows, log in to the Administrator account.
  2. Open a command line.
  3. Change directories.
    • For Linux/AIX, use cd /aiw/aiw1/bin.
    • For Windows, use cd C:\aiw\aiw1\bin.
  4. Enter this command to run the utility:
    docCustom
  5. Close the command line.
  6. Log in to Ricoh ProcessDirector.
  7. Click Administration → System → Features.
  8. Select the check box for the Custom Document Properties feature.
  9. In the Action column for the feature, select the most recent date and time.
  10. Click Apply.
  11. When the Confirm actions window appears, click OK to restart the system and install or upgrade the Custom Document Properties feature.

    The Update in progress window appears.

  12. When the update completes, click Finish.

    The Custom Document Properties feature is installed or upgraded, and you are redirected to the login page.

  13. Check that your new document properties are defined on the system:
    1. Log in to Ricoh ProcessDirector.
    2. Open Property Search on the Documents portlet and scroll through the Property list to see if it includes your new properties.

If you have the PDF Document Support feature installed and you change document property names in Ricoh ProcessDirector, load a new document properties list into Ricoh ProcessDirector Plug-in for Adobe Acrobat.

If you have the AFP Support feature installed and you change document property names in Ricoh ProcessDirector, access Ricoh Visual Workbench from the Ricoh ProcessDirector user interface. New document properties are loaded to Ricoh Visual Workbench when it opens on your workstation.
