A step that is based on this step template sends a PDF print job to PitStop Server for preflight processing. The step waits for the PitStop Server to return the updated job, then continues processing with the next step.

Job property defaults

  • External command: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Enfocus\Enfocus PitStop Server 10\PitStopServerCLI.exe" -config ${AIWDATA}\control_files\external_programs\pitstop.cfg -input ${getAbsoluteFileName( print, pdf, read)} -output ${getAbsoluteFileName( print, pdf, write)} -mutator "${Job.Pitstop.ActionListOrProfile}" -taskReport ${getAbsoluteFileName( pitstop_rpt, xml, write)}
  • PitStop action list or PDF profile: ${AIWDATA}\pitstop\IP 5000 Global Changes.eal
  • Valid return codes: 0

Usage notes

  • If the primary server runs on a UNIX-based operating system, steps based on this step template must be tuned to run on an application server.
  • The value of the External command property is the command used to run PitStop server using its command line interface. For information about the syntax of the command, see the Command Line Interface publication that comes with PitStop Server.

    You can use RICOH ProcessDirector symbol notation in the command. Symbols are resolved before RICOH ProcessDirector submits the command to PitStop server.

  • The default value of the External command property includes the default path to the PitStop Server program file. You might need to update that path to reflect the install path for PitStop Server on your system.
  • The default value of the PitStop action list or PDF profile property is the path to a PitStop action list that RICOH ProcessDirector provides. This action list is designed to optimize print quality for jobs that are sent to an InfoPrint 5000 printer while minimizing waste.
  • To generate a Pitstop report, add this flag to the External command property: -reportPDF ${getFileName(pitstop-rpt,pdf,write)}
