Barcode -


This component supports recognition of one-dimensional and two-dimensional barcodes from image files.


The component provides the following features:


·         Auto-detection of barcode type and direction.

·         Enhanced barcode detection by applying a number of preprocessing methods to low-quality images.

·         Zoned recognition. Zones allow narrowing the search area, which increases the performance. Also, you can configure the options specifically for every zone: specify pages, validation criteria, and mandatory presence of a single barcode. Barcodes found within a zone can be added to a named set to retrieve their values through a special type of RRTs.

·         Support for custom fields that are passed to the subsequent components as RRTs.

·         Support for PDF processing-related settings such as PDF color and compression, PDF rasterization quality for output documents.

·         Splitting the original document into several documents on a barcode whose value matches a specified criterion. The supported validation methods: wildcards, regular expressions, external scripts.


Binder -


Binder process component allows you to bind multiple TIFF documents into one TIFF document.  For example, you may want to process a document consisting of more pages than an MFP device automatic document feeder can handle at one time. The pages are accumulated into one document until a specified condition gets satisfied, after which the document is released into the workflow.


The component provides the following features:


·         Accumulate pages of input TIFF documents into one document.

·         Pass the resulting TIFF document to subsequent components in the process.

·         Release the resulting document according to a condition determined at runtime.


Data Filter -


This component performs various string operations and applies different filters to data received via RRTs from previous components. The component generates the result of these operations as RRTs and provides them to the subsequent components. The result of the operation can be validated.

The features of the component include:


·         Filters that can be applied:

·         Replace

·         Match Regular Expression

·         Starts With

·         Ends With

·         Equals To

·         Contains

·         Make Upper Case

·         Make Lower Case

·         Trim

·         Clean Up

·         Format Date

·         Format Time

·         Concatenate

·         Split

·         Parsing CSV string using the Parse CSV filter.

·         Database Lookup using DB filter.

·         Additional validation of the filter's result using Validate filter and the ability to reject the current job with the configured error message if validation fails.


IBM Content Manager on Demand -


IBM Content Manager OnDemand component allows you to send documents to the IBM Content Manager OnDemand system.


The features of this component include:


·         Create import files for sending documents to the IBM Content Manager OnDemand system.

·         Define and map meta-data to be imported in the IBM Content Manager OnDemand system.

·         Configurable application/application group settings.

·         No client application necessary.

·         Back-up/failsafe functionality.


IMAP Capture -


IMAP Capture is a capture component that is capable of retrieving email messages from a mail server that supports IMAP protocol. The component can work with several mail accounts and allows you to create several classes of search criteria for every account, with each class passing messages to a single workflow. The component receives and processes messages one at a time.


The component offers the following features:


·         Retrieving e-mail messages from mail servers that support IMAP protocol.

·         Different search criteria according to which messages are searched for and specifying different workflows for them.

·         Various parameters of email messages that can be used in search criteria: subject, from, body, size, and date.

·         Custom IMAP queries to make search criteria more exact.

·         Creating separate documents for every attachment and sending them into the workflow separately to provide more flexibility.


RightFax Capture -


Use RightFax Capture component to capture new faxes that appear on a RightFax server and process these faxes into the workflow. The component allows configuration of separate workflows for received and sent faxes.

The component passes captured fax data to the subsequent components via RRTs.  The component works with RightFax Server versions 9.0, 9.3 and 9.4. The Right Fax client software should be installed on the machine with Workflow Server for proper functioning of the component.

This component provides the following features:


·         Capturing faxes from a RightFax server.

·         Different workflows for sent and received faxes.

·         Synchronization of multiple instances of the component working with the same server.

·         Pass captured fax data to the subsequent components via RRTs.


Web Capture -


Web Capture is a capture component the purpose of which is to allow users to capture documents into the workflow process via a user interface that is accessible through a web browser. The component allows for configuration of any number of forms and assigning a different workflow to each form. A form is an entity, which you can think of as an entrance way to a workflow. It defines which users have access to the workflow and the metadata that must be provided in order to send a document. The behavior of the web forms can be modified using the Dynamic Form functionality.  Web Capture has additional functionality that facilitates the organization of the workflow process when using Send to Folder, Send to SharePoint, Send to SMTP or Send to Exchange components.


This component provides the following features:


·         Capturing documents through web interface using a web browser.

·         Support for different authentication mechanisms to restrict the access to the forms.

·         Providing information about the processed documents by adding fields to the forms. Supported field types are: Tree, List, Text, Checkbox, Numeric, Date and Lookup List.

·         Modifying the standard behavior of the forms by using custom VB.Net scripts.

·         Additional forms to be used in conjunction with Send To Folder, Send To SMTP and Send To SharePoint components.

·         With Custom Development license you can create your own custom client to communicate with the service, through which documents can be captured into the workflow.


XML Importer -


XML Importer process component can extract various data elements of XML documents and import in to the workflow.  This component processes an XML file on input, executes XPath queries to retrieve necessary information and uses the queries' results as search fields for building field RRTs or as the content for files. These RRTs and/or files are then passed to the subsequent components in the workflow.


The component also has the ability of getting a file through a specified path and adding this file to the workflow. The XML file itself can be also passed for subsequent processing. The component supports all the options of the XPath language and allows execution of several queries sequentially in the order in which they appear in the fields' list.


·         Design XPath queries and test them for correctness.

·         Execute one or several XPath queries to obtain information from the XML file.

·         Pass queries results to the subsequent components in a workflow via RRTs.

·         Create files by extraction file information from the XML file and attach them to the workflow.

·         Attach existing files to a workflow using the specified path.

·         Use the results of the previous query in the settings of the next query.

·         Pass the XML file itself to the subsequent components in a workflow.
