Path to override properties file

Specifies the full path and name of a text file that contains a list of job properties whose values you want to use when the new jobs are created. When you specify an override properties file, Ricoh ProcessDirector creates an overrides file. This overrides file is passed to every job created by the CreateJobsFromRepositorySearch step.

Format:

Default

None

Database name

Job.RepSearch.PathToOverrides

Usage notes:

  • To define the contents of the text file, place the database name of each job property on a separate line. For example, this file specifies three job properties (Customer name, Media required, and Duplex):

    Job.CustomerName

    Job.MediaRequired

    Job.Duplex

  • You can add comments to the file. Place each comment on a separate line that starts with a pound sign (#). For example:

    Job.CustomerName

    # This is a comment.

  • Property values, such as Media and Job copies requested, are not passed from the job in the CreateJobsFromRepositorySearch step to the jobs created by the step unless you create an override properties file. When you specify the database names of job properties in an override properties file, Ricoh ProcessDirector creates an overrides file with the values of the properties. This overrides file is passed to every job created by the step. For information about overrides files, refer to the Information Center.
  • You can use symbol formulas to specify a path and file name. For example, you want to use the same overrides for all new jobs submitted to a specified workflow. To give the override properties file the same name as the workflow, specify this value:
    • /aiw/aiw1/control_files/${Job.JobType}.txt (AIX or Linux)
    • C:\aiw\aiw1\control_files\${Job.JobType}.txt (Windows)
    For more information about symbol notation and how to use it, refer to the help system.
  • If you want to use the values of the same job properties with new jobs submitted to different workflows, you can specify the same override properties file for multiple CreateJobsFromRepositorySearch steps. If you want to use the values of different job properties with new jobs submitted to different workflows, specify different names for the override properties files.
  • Path to override properties file is a positional job property. For information about using positional job properties, refer to the Information Center.
