Thanks for the information Javier.
By default it seems uStore is sending in varied stock information as class consumable
<Media Class="Consumable" ID="M4858" Status="Available" MediaType="Paper" MediaUnit="Sheet" DescriptiveName="Media Type Thin" Thickness="4" />
<Media Class="Consumable" ID="M4859" Status="Available" MediaType="Paper" MediaUnit="Sheet" DescriptiveName="Media Type Thick" Thickness="40" />
These are missing the ProductID.
Is this information readable by Freeflow core? What variable(s) would this map to if so?
If this information is not readable without productID and this had to be added, how does FF core deal with multiple media nodes?
The xpaf file is based on the response FFCore gets back after quering for capabilities via IPP.
Those responses are not always exactly the same, but in most cases you can find the media information in the media-col-database element. The JDF ProductID is mapped to the value of the media-key attribute.
Or more to the point: /xcap/media-col-database/value/media-key
The xpaf will have a value element for each media the DFE returns. The media-key is the element that contains the value that should be used in the JDF ProductID
We've been trying to add some variables on a watermark page that would relay to those in production the details of the job when printed.
Some of the variables are cause errors, right now mostly print related information like Main Stock e.t.c.
Jobs are submitted by JMF/JDF to freeflow core.
We were directed by xerox support to look at the xpaf files for the printer for the value to use for a ProductID that was missing from our JDF. Looking at the xpaf files I'm not sure where I should be looking for this ProductID (nothing is clearly marked thus) or where in the JDF the ProductID should go.
Assistance in this would be appreciated.
