Specifying job attributes

By default, jobs submitted through a hot folder use the attribute values in the default document and default job associated with the logical destination; and also by default, hot folder jobs are submitted to InfoPrint Manager with job notifications turned off. To receive notifications about jobs that you submit through hot folders, you must specify a notification-profile with an explicit delivery-address in the .att file. To specify other attributes or use different values for existing attributes, complete these steps.
  1. Either on your system or in the hot folder itself, create a text file to use as your attributes file. Name the attributes file filename.att, where filename is the same as the file name of the print file. For example, if the print file is report.pdf, the attributes file is report.pdf.att.
  2. In the attributes file, specify the InfoPrint attributes and values to use for this job. For example, to print three single-sided copies of report.pdf, report.pdf.att looks like this:
    copy-count = 3
    sides = 1
    Note: The attributes file is in the same format as a –X file passed to a pdpr command.
    For information about job and document attributes, see InfoPrint Manager: Reference.
  3. If you created the attributes file on your system, copy or move the file to the hot folder. The InfoPrint Manager logical destination recognizes the .att file extension as an attributes file and knows not to try to print it.
  4. Copy or move the print file to the hot folder. The InfoPrint Manager logical destination sees the print file and looks for an attributes file with the same file name. Both of the files are taken and your attributes are used.
