A group specifies the forms which will be displayed at the device along with the corresponding repository to be used. Additionally, authentication is enabled on a per-group basis.

To add a group, click any node of the group/menu/form tree and click Add > Group of Devices on the toolbar. To edit an existing group, click the group and click the Edit button. To remove a group, click the group, and click the Remove button.

Option Description
Name Specify the name of the group. This name does not appear on the MFP display and it is used strictly for identification and configuration purposes.
Repository Type Specify one of the two modes used by the component to send files from the device to the AutoStore server:
  • FTP — File Transfer Protocol is a standard network protocol used to transfer files from one host or to another host over a TCP-based network.
  • WebDAV — Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning is an extension of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) that facilitates managing documents and files stored on World Wide Web servers.
Global Authentication Select this check box to use authentication preferences that were set on the Authentication tab located on the Konica Minolta MFP properties dialog box.
Highest Allowed OpenAPI Client Version Refers to the client SDK version used on the device. A version can be selected. Auto Detect is selected by default. With Auto Detect, the highest OpenAPI Client version found on the device will be used.
Associated MFP Addresses In the MFP Address field, type the IP address for a device that you want to associate with this group. A user can also Import and Export lists here or Discover MFPs on the network using the buttons. This option is only configurable in custom groups and not in the default group. A device can only belong to one group other than the default group. The component displays an error message if you attempt to add a device to a second group.
AutoStore Button Text on the MFP Allows for the customization of the text of the AutoStore application button registered on the MFP.

Type the label that you want to appear on the AutoStore button on the MFP. If you do not specify a value here, the label on the button will be AutoStore or AutoStore Express, depending on the installation package. Before changing this text make sure that you have unregistered the application with the old name. Otherwise the MFP will display two buttons, one with the old name and one with the new name.
