Fixed Value Explanation
rip-and-hold, If all required resources are ready, InfoPrint RIPs the job and returns it to the scheduler in the held state. The value of the job-state-reasons attribute is rip-and-hold-completed. Otherwise, if the required resources are not ready, InfoPrint holds the job. The value of the job-state-reasons attribute is required-resources-not-ready. When the required resources become ready, InfoPrint automatically RIPs the job and returns it to the scheduler in the held state.
rip-and-hold-ignore-ready InfoPrint RIPs the job and returns it to the scheduler in the held state. The value of the job-state-reasons attribute is rip-and-hold-completed. If the required resources are not ready, InfoPrint adds required-resource-not-ready to job-state-reason attribute. InfoPrint automatically updates the job-state-reason when all required resources become ready.
rip-and-print If all required resources are ready on an actual destination, InfoPrint RIPs and prints the job. Otherwise, InfoPrint returns the job to the scheduler in the held state, without RIPping it. The value of the job-state-reasons attribute is required-resource-not-ready.
rip-and-print-ignore-ready If all required resources are ready, InfoPrint RIPs and prints the job. Otherwise, InfoPrint RIPs the job and returns it to the scheduler in the held state. The value of the job-state-reasons attribute is rip-completed. When the required resources become ready, InfoPrint automatically releases the job to print.
rip-only, rip-only-ignore-ready InfoPrint RIPs the job and discards or retains it according to the values of the job-retain-until and job-retention-period attributes. For a retained job, the value of the job-state-reasons attribute is completed, completed successfully, or completed with errors.

Default Value

No default value

Usage Guidelines

  • Use the rip-only and rip-only-ignore-ready values to test for RIPping errors.
  • The rip-and-hold and rip-and-hold-ignore-ready values override a value of false for the server save-rip-files attribute.
  • InfoPrint validates and schedules jobs using this attribute against the destination attribute job-rip-actions-supported.
Note: You can set the count-job-pages server attribute to enable the job page count function. When enabled, the server can calculate job page count for jobs with rip-and-hold or rip-and-hold-ignore-ready values of the job-rip-actions attribute.
