Posted by Apposite Solution Limited on 20 August 2019 10:52 AM

New Features

  • Print Deploy
    Get the right print driver and right print queue to the right person in the right location, automatically. With Print Deploy:
    • Print queues are dynamically deployed as mobile staff move between branches, stores, or campuses.
    • Native drivers are installed along with default settings (grayscale, duplex etc.) and capabilities (stapling, hole punching etc).
    • It doesn't matter whether printing to a server or printing directly to a printer in a print-serverless environment.
    • Mac and Windows computers are supported (with Linux and Chromebooks to come shortly).
    • Support for computers that are not joined to a local domain (for example, G Suite or Microsoft Azure AD).
  • Custom Reports
    • You can now manage and run your own custom reports built in JasperSoft Studio. Note that updated documentation will be available by GA. PC-15694

Enhancements

  • PaperCut NG/MF manual: We have revamped the look of the PaperCut NG/MF manual (now called the PaperCut NG/MF Help Center). This new design offers a fresh look as well as easier navigation. PC-16408

    • Added a new server command to configure advanced popup settings for a given user (set-user-account-selection-advanced-popup). This allows administrators to automate the creation and management of advanced users. PC-6803

    • Added a new server command that initiates an update to the device of any outstanding configuration changes. PC-15434

    • Listing all usernames in a group can now be done through 'get-group-members' server command or API. PC-6006
    • Added new server commands that allow users to look up PaperCut NG/MF usernames by other descriptors such as email, full name, and user alias:
      • look-up-user-name-by-email <email>
      • look-up-user-name-by-secondary-user-name <user-alias>
      • look-up-user-name-by-full-name <"full name"> PC-13666
    • Web services API: Managing API application security is now even easier with the ability to assign different authentication tokens to different applications. PC-14117
