Preferences Tab

Options on this tab configure settings for the component web server, retaining processed and reject files, and additional temporary directories.


Specify the web server that captures scanned document images and associated metadata using HTTP or HTTPS. This allows a web application or service to directly receive the data rather than monitoring for a file to appear at a predetermined location.

Option Description
Home Directory Enter the root directory where the server creates all temporary directories and files necessary for running the application and controlling device related traffic. The service account must have full permission to write to this directory. You can click the browse button (...) to locate a folder on the host machine.
Web Server Port Enter the port number that the web server uses to communicate with clients.
Use SSL Select this check box to use secure connections between the web server and clients.
  • Choose Certificate — Select the certificate by which data can be retrieved by the workflow server when using HTTPS (SSL). To create a new certificate, select "<New self signed...>". To locate an existing certificate, click "<Browse...>".
  • Certificate Password — Type the password for the certificate. If you created a self-signed certificate, this value will be automatically entered into the field based on the information you provided when creating the certificate.
    Note: When Use SSL is checked, if an icon appears on the device panel it will be the default Fuji Xerox icon and not the AutoStore icon. To have the selected AutoStore icon displayed on the device panel the default SSL port number should be changed to 443.
FTP Port Enter the port on which the FTP service will be running. To enable FTP logging or to specify the data port range for passive FTP, click the Advanced button to open the Advanced Server Settings dialog box.


These options allow you to keep processed and rejected files.

Option Description
Processed Files Select this check box to keep a copy of all files that are processed without errors. Enter the path to the folder where these files will be kept. You can click the browse button (...) to locate a folder.
CAUTION: If this option is enabled, a copy of every file that is routed successfully is saved in the Processed Files directory. Make sure that proper disk storage is allocated when using this option.
Rejected Files Selected this check box to keep a copy of all files that failed to be processed. Enter the path to the folder where these files will be kept. You can click the browse button (...) to locate a folder.
Important: The service account for the service must have write permissions on the Processed Files and Rejected Files directories.

Additional Temporary Repositories

You can set up additional temporary FTP repositories, although these selections are optional. These FTP settings can be accessed when enabling authentication at the group level. In the Group Settings dialog box, you should select External FTP for the Temporary Repository setting. See Group Settings.
