Database property names for step templates

Messages about step templates might refer to properties by their database names, which begin with StepTemplate.

Some of the values that you see in drop-down lists in the user interface are not the same as the values that RICOH ProcessDirector uses internally. When you make some requests using Web services or set values using an overrides file, you must use the internal value. The Internal values column lists the internal values for those properties.

In the Editable column:

  • Yes means that an authorized user can change the value after the step template has been created.
  • No means that an authorized user cannot change the value.
