Preparing for job submission

You can submit jobs to RICOH ProcessDirector using different mechanisms, such as the LPD protocol, FTP, SCP, file copying, or the Submit Jobs portlet on the Main page. Some preparation is necessary no matter which submission method you use. If you install the AFP Support feature, you can submit jobs using Download for z/OS or AFP Download Plus.

If you install the Web Services Enablement feature, you can use SOAP or REST web service connections to retrieve files from other applications and process them as jobs.

Job submission is how you get your input files into the directory that an input device monitors. The input device then creates a job, assigns it a workflow, and initiates the workflow.
