Group Settings

Options in the Group Settings dialog box configure settings for device groups.

Add a group on the Groups tab of the Fuji Xerox AIP configuration dialog box.

  • To add a group, click Add Group on the menu bar. Then, in the Group Settings dialog box, configure options on the General and Authentication tabs.

General Tab

Option Description
Name Type a name for the group. This name does not appear on the MFP display and it is used strictly for identification purposes.
Temporary Repository Specify the protocol that will be used to connect to temporary repositories:
  • Internal FTP — This option uses internal FTP settings.
  • External FTP — This option uses the external FTP folder that is configured for creating optional temporary repositories in the Local FTP settings on the Preferences tab of the Fuji Xerox AIP configuration dialog box (see Preferences Tab).
  • Internal HTTP(S) — The internal web server will be used to receive scanned documents. To use the SSL protocol when transmitting scanned documents to the AutoStore server, select the Use SSL option on the Preferences tab of the Fuji Xerox AIP configuration dialog box (see Preferences Tab).

Use one of the FTP options if you anticipate scanning documents with more than 200 pages. With HTTP or HTTPS, the maximum number of pages that can be scanned is 200.

Associated MFP Addresses Enter the IP address or host name for each device that you want to add to the group. This list must contain at least one MFP device.
Tip: A network name is usually preferable, because an IP address can change if you are using Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP).

Authentication Tab

Options on this tab configure authentication settings for devices in a group.

Option Description
Requires Authentication Select this check box to require that MFP devices in this group authenticate users.
Use Global Authentication Settings If authentication has been configure on the Authentication tab of the Fuji Xerox AIP component settings, then you can select this check box to apply the component authentication settings for the group. When this check box is selected, the Authentication Settings options are unavailable.
Authentication Settings Choose the Authentication Type to be used:
  • None — No authentication method specified.
  • Windows — Select this option to prompt the user for their Windows user name, domain, and password. After you select this option, configure the Windows and User Info Lookup options.
  • Custom Script — Administrator defines prompts for authentication for a custom application. After you select this option, configure the Custom Script and options.
Windows Windows authentication authenticates users using their Windows domain user name. In the Domain box, specify the default domain for authenticating users.

Do not use the fully qualified Domain Name Server (DNS) domain name. Do not use top level domain qualifiers such as .com, .net or .org. For example, if the user is listed as mydomain/user1 or user1@mydomain.domain.com, then in a User Principal Name (UPN) format, the domain should be “mydomain” and NOT “mydomain.domain.com”.

Note: If the device is configured to use an Authentication Server with authentication type SMB, then the credentials provided will be used by workflow server. If the authentication type of the device is something other than SMB, then in addition to workflow server login screen, the device authentication screen is also displayed.
Custom Script When Custom is selected for Authentication Type, the administrator defines prompts that are displayed to the user. An event is sent to the server when a user logs in. The administrator must provide the .NET plug-in DLL that responds to the event.
  • Script File Path — This is the path to script that contains the code to respond to form and field events. You can click the browse button (...) to locate a Visual Basic Script (.vbs) file containing an existing script.
  • Edit Script Code — Click this button to create or edit a script. A sample custom script is available with this component. For details about the code editor window and the object model, click the Help button button in the code editor to refer to the Fuji Xerox AIP Scripting documentation.
  • Configure Prompts — Click this button to configure prompts that collect authentication information for users.
User Info Lookup Select the Use LDAP search to retrieve email check box to have the server look up the email address and other attributes of the authenticated user on a designated LDAP server. Click the Configure button to configure the LDAP settings in the LDAP Lookup Settings dialog box.
Note: When Windows authentication is used, the email address is retrieved automatically as part of the authentication and as a result an LDAP search is not required if only the email address is needed.

For information about specifying the LDAP server settings, see LDAP Lookup Settings Dialog Box.

Query device authentication session for credentials The behavior determined by this check box depends on the Authentication Type setting:
  • None — The user is not prompted for credentials.
    • If this check box is selected, the sender RRTs will use the logon credentials for the device.
    • If this check box is cleared, the sender RRTs will be empty.
  • Windows — The user is prompted for credentials except for the following cases:
    • This check box is selected and the device has been configured to use Windows authentication.
    • This check box is selected and the device has been configured to use third-party authentication that passes valid Windows credentials (name and domain). If the domain is not passed, then a user must be in the default domain that has been configured for Windows authentication.

    In these two cases, the sender RRTs will use the logon credentials for the device. Otherwise, the sender RRTs will use the credentials that the user entered on the logon screen.

  • Custom Script — The user will always be prompted for user credentials even when this check box is selected. The sender RRTs will use credentials entered on the logon screen.
