Database name

Usage notes:

  • If you include the WritePropsToReportsDatabase step multiple times in the same workflow, you can specify an Event type value each time to record specific data points during the history of the job and its documents in the system.

    For example, use an Event type of Print for the WritePropsToReportsDatabase step immediately after the print step and another Event type of Insert after the insert step.

    If a job is reprinted and is processed by the WritePropsToReportsDatabase step after printing again, a second entry is added to the database.

  • Event type is a positional job property. For information about using positional job properties, refer to the Information Center.
