Job Parsing tab

Use the Job Parsing tab to configure job parsing profiles. This profile configures information extracted from Postscript, PDF, and PCL documents. The job parsing method of extracting meta-data relies on printer-specific data streams that can include Postscript and PCL, but can also contain ticketing information or job level commands that are not part of the print data itself. The distinction is that the format of this information within the print stream is already defined, by the manufacturer or some standards body, and Output Manager has a profile that defines how the information is mapped to the Output Manager print properties.

You can access this dialog box from the Document Properties Profile dialog box during source configuration.
