Job-properties rules files for inserter results files
RICOH ProcessDirector uses the job-properties rules file to set values of RICOH ProcessDirector job properties. It uses the job-properties rules file together with the parsing rules file that defines the fields in the results file.
RICOH ProcessDirector provides these sample job-properties rules files in directory /installation_path/extensions/fbi-basic/samples/icf_results:
|Inserter manufacturer||Job-properties rules|
|Bowe with JetVision camera systems||JET.icf_results.process.job.dsc|
|Bowe Bell & Howell||None (not supported)|
|Inserters with Ironsides camera systems||IRON.icf_results.process.job.dsc|
RICOH ProcessDirector job properties set in rules file lists the job properties that you can set in a rules file.
- If you need to set the value of another job property, an authorized user must add
a line for the job property in file
RICOH ProcessDirector job properties set in rules file
|Property (field name)||Property (database name)||Required||Description||Type||Length (characters)|
|Inserter name||Job.Inserter.ID||No||The name of the inserter that processed the job.||varchar||255|
|Job name||Job.Name||No||The job name.||character||128|
Comment lines start with a pound sign (#).
The first non-comment line is optional. It identifies which records in the results file contain information. The first line has this format:
For example, if the first line of the results file is a header and you want to ignore it, use this expression:
If all records in the results files contain information, omit this line.
Each subsequent line in the rules file sets the value of a RICOH ProcessDirector job property. Each line has this format:
- Specifies the database name of the RICOH ProcessDirector job property.
- Specifies the type of data in the property value. Allowed values: character, varchar, integer, bigint.
- Specifies the maximum number of characters allowed in the property value.
- Specifies an expression in the RICOH ProcessDirector Content Expression Language (CEL). The expression is evaluated and the result becomes the value of the job property. In the expression, you can specify a fixed value, or you can specify the value of a field in the results file. The parsing rules file defines the fields in the results file. You can also use CEL. For information about the CEL language and functions, see the related Reference topic.
ExamplesThis example sets the Job.Inserter.ID property value equal to the value of the MachineID field in the results file. The MachineID field must match a field name defined in the parsing rules file.
