PrepareJobFromRepositorySearch

A step that is based on this step template creates a job from the output of a step based on the CreateJobsFromRepositorySearch step template.

The ZIP file created from a step based on the CreateJobsFromRepositorySearch step template includes the data files for the jobs or documents returned by the repository search. The ZIP file also contains any overrides files and document overrides files if those files are returned from the repository search. The PrepareJobFromRepositorySearch step template merges the individual print, job overrides, and document overrides files to create a single instance of each type. The step writes the files print.zip, overrides.txt, and document.overrides to the spool directory of the job.

Job property defaults

  • Input File: ${getFileName(archive,zip,read)}

Usage notes

  • If multiple job overrides files are included in the input ZIP file and different values exist in the files for the same job property, the job goes to Error state.
    For example, in one job overrides file, the property Duplex is set to Yes. In the second job overrides file, the property Duplex is set to Tumble. The step places the job in Error state.

    If one of the jobs overrides files has the property Duplex set to Yes and the second file does not have that property set, then Duplex is added to the resulting overrides file with the value Yes.

  • If multiple document overrides files are included in the input ZIP file and different values exist in the files for the same document property, the document properties are added to the document overrides file created by the step. Documents that do not have a property included in their document overrides file are added with a value of null (“).
  • Any step that uses a ZIP file as input can process the ZIP file created from this step. For example, steps based on the IdentifyPDFDocuments, BuildAFPFromZip, or BuildPDFromZip step templates can be used to process the output of this step. You can submit the ZIP file to a hot folder using a step based on the CopyToFolder step template. If the hot folder is set up to process ZIP files, the ZIP file is submitted as a new job.
