Output Manager supports rules for effective document processing, routing and control.

Output Manager includes rules in the following categories.

Category Description
Business rules Business rules can be used to perform tasks such as to assign document ownership, route documents, transform documents from one printer language to another, split documents, modify the contents of documents, and so forth.
AdHoc rules AdHoc rules run on user-selected documents that are spooled. Complete rules can be processed using conditions, or just actions for unconditional processing. AdHoc rules can be scheduled.
Alert rules Alert rules specify actions when certain events occur.
Error handling rules Error handling is controlled using Error Handling Profiles, which can be assigned to any destination to define the behavior in the event of errors occurring at the destination.
Failover rules Failover and automatic re-routing of a document is controlled using settings in the error handling profile in conjunction with a failover profile.
