Using job properties or document properties in rules

You can compare a job property or document property to a static value, such as a number or word, or to a dynamic value, such as job property, document property or statistic.

For example, you have two inserters, and you want to choose the inserter for different jobs. You can use the SetDocPropsFromConditions step in your workflow to set a value of a specific job property such as Doc.Insert.InserterID. In RICOH ProcessDirector Plug-in for Adobe Acrobat, you can use the Doc.Insert.InserterID job property in a rule. RICOH ProcessDirector can apply a specific barcode or image based on the control file (which contains the rules you defined in RICOH ProcessDirector Plug-in for Adobe Acrobat) that you add to a BuildPDFFromDocuments step.

Note: When using a document or job property value in a rule, define your value so it matches the value of the property when RICOH ProcessDirector processes the page groups in the PDF file. For example, the values of the Doc.Insert.InserterID job property in RICOH ProcessDirector are 01 and 02. Use those values when you define a rule with the Doc.Insert.InserterID job property as a condition. Do not use One and Two.
