Associating inserter controller objects with jobs

You can associate an inserter controller object with jobs. Each job can have one associated inserter controller object.

Ricoh ProcessDirector uses the inserter controller object for the job to:

  • Write the inserter control file for the job and send it to the inserter controller.
  • Receive the inserter results file for the job from the inserter controller and interpret it.

To associate an inserter controller object with jobs, you specify the name of the inserter controller object in the Inserter controller job property. You can specify this property in a step based on the WriteInserterControlFile or InsertJobs step template.

If you change the Inserter controller property for a job that is already in the system, use the Process Again action to reprocess the job starting at the step based on the WriteInserterControlFile step template (if one exists) or from the step based on the InsertJobs step template.

To associate an inserter controller object with jobs:
  1. Log in as an authorized user.
  2. On the Main page, click the Workflow tab.
  3. In the Workflow Objects portlet, click the Workflows tab.
  4. Select the workflow that the jobs use.
  5. Click Disable workflow (Disable workflow icon).
    The workflow must contain a step based on the WriteInserterControlFile or InsertJobs step template.
  6. In the Workflow Objects portlet, click the Step Templates tab.
  7. Select the step based on the WriteInserterControlFile or InsertJobs step template.
  8. Click Properties (Properties icon).
  9. In the Job Defaults section in the Inserter controller property, select the inserter controller object.
  10. Click OK.
  11. When you are ready to save the workflow, click Save workflow (Save workflow icon).
  12. To use the workflow, go to the Workflow Objects portlet. Select the workflow and click Enable workflow (Enable workflow icon).
