Usage Guidelines

  • If job-hold is true, the job-state changes to held and InfoPrint sets the job-state-reasons to job-hold-set.
  • A held job remains in the queue until:
    • job-hold is set to false and the job is printed or sent.
    • The time set in the job-discard-time attribute is reached and the job is discarded.
    • The time set in the pull-print-timeout attribute expired and the job is discarded.
  • When a job with job-rip-action=rip-and-print-ignore-ready is placed in the held state after RIPping because a required resource is not ready, the value of job-hold remains false. The job is automatically released when all required resources become ready.
