I am facing the same issue as well. It was initially observed on a single device but now 2 out 5 devices present this issue. I tried, the solution provided below but it didn't work.
Also, when looking at the troubleshooting guide, it says something about checking the HTTPS communication between the devices and XWS server.
The Workplace Suite Printer Client Copy requires that the printer can connect to the server, using HTTPS and the Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) of the XWS server.
My copy jobs are not printing, the printer displays an error, or prints an error page with one of these errors: To validate connectivity:

3. Validate that the Xerox® Workplace Suite server HTTPS Certificate matches the FQDN, and that the issuer matches the FQDN server name.

We are using Xerox Workplace Suite version 184.108.40.206 at my organization.
Unfortunately, we have a significant number of errors during copy function process. The error message is "Unable to process document ’Job_13.52.00.057’. The printer is unable to copy your document."
In the job log, there is no information about the cause of this issue and if we use a native app for copy, it works perfectly.
Could anybody help me with the investigation process?
