How to add a Ricoh ESA device

This task explains how to create a device profile for the Ricoh ESA Unified Client. The profile enables you to manage the Ricoh ESA Unified Client, AutoStore, Output Manager, and authentication settings on the device through Device Registration Service.

  1. Browse to the Device Registration Service (for example, http://10.16.37.51:9000/device).
  2. Click Devices.
  3. Click Add Device on the Devices toolbar.
  4. Type a device name.
  5. Type the IP address or DNS address of the device.
    The address is specific to the device and does not appear when you configure properties for a device group.
  6. Type the administrator user name for the device.
    The default is admin. The user name is not required to perform an action on the device.
  7. Type the password for the administrator user name.
    By default, there is not a password and the field is empty.
  8. Select the target application.
  9. Configure device properties as described in the following table:
    Property Description
    Remote Install Password

    Remote password for the device. Use this password to upload the Ricoh ESA Unified Client Xlet to the Ricoh ESA device. The default password is ricoh.

    Enable Print Release

    Set to True to enable users to release Output Manager print jobs after logging in to the device.

    Enable Scan

    Set to True to enable users to scan documents through AutoStore.

    Default Functionality

    Select if Output Manager or AutoStore settings appear by default after users log in to the device.

    Authentication

    Select the authentication mode that controls how users log in to the device. Ricoh authentication modes provides more information on authentication modes.

    If you select OM Authentication with Device Access Control, OM Authentication, or AutoStore Authentication and the device has a Smart Operation Panel, set SmartPanel Compatibility Mode to True.

    Secure Communication

    Set to True to enable secure socket layer (SSL) communication through HTTPS. Set to False to communicate through HTTP.

    Log Level
    Set the log level as follows:
    • Error: Errors appear in the log file.
    • Warning: Errors and warnings appear in the log file.
    • Information: Errors, warnings, and information messages appear in the log file.
    • Debug: All message types and debugging messages appear in the log file.
    OM Date Format

    Specify the format that Output Manager uses to the show date.

    OM Date Time Format

    Specify the format that Output Manager uses to show the date and time.

    AS Application Name

    Specify the name of the application that appears on the device panel.

    AS Status Refresh Interval

    Specify the refresh interval for AutoStore in seconds. The default is 60 seconds.

    AS Batch Scan Timeout

    When batch scanning mode is enabled, specifies the period of inactivity in seconds at the device panel before the Ricoh ESA Unified Client sends the batch scan job to AutoStore. For example, you use the default of 60 seconds. If a user scans a batch of 12 documents and leaves the device, the Ricoh ESA Unified Client sends the job to AutoStore 60 seconds after the last document enters the scanner.

    OM Application Timeout

    Specify the period of inactivity in seconds at the device panel before the Ricoh ESA Unified Client automatically logs a user off the device.

    On a device that operates with a Java platform version older than 10.x, the period of inactivity starts with a key or button click when the Ricoh ESA Unified Client is active on the panel. On a device that operates with Java platform version 10.x or newer, the period of inactivity starts with a key or button click from any application.

    Display Destination Specific Documents Only

    Set to True to show print jobs for only the device that you are configuring. For example, you set the value to True for device A. When users view print jobs at the device A panel, they see only the print jobs that they have submitted to device A. If the value is False, users see the print jobs that they have submitted to device A and to other destinations.

    As a best practice, use the default value of False.

    OM Enable SSO Provider
    Set to True to enable single-sign-on (SSO) through a provider if users log in and log out through a device configured for Output Manager functionality. Verify that the following requirements are satisfied to enable SSO:
    • A third-party application wants SSO through the Ricoh ESA Unified Client login.
    • A Notable Solutions SSO provider is installed.
    SmartPanel Compatibility Mode

    Enables authentication compatibility between the Ricoh ESA Unified Client and Ricoh devices that have a Smart Operation Panel.

    Set the value to True if the device has a Smart Operation Panel and the Authentication value is OM Authentication with Device Access Control, OM Authentication, or AutoStore Authentication. The Ricoh ESA Unified Client shows a graphical Logout button because the Smart Operation Panel does not have a Logout key.

    Set the value to False for Ricoh devices that do not have a Smart Operation Panel. Users log out by pressing the Logout key on the standard device panel.

    Use SNMPv3 Set the value to True to configure the Unified Client to support version 3 of the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).
    Device Context Name Specify the context name that the device uses for SNMPv3.
    Account Name Specify the account name that the device uses for SNMPv3 authentication.
    Authentication Password Specify the password that the device uses for SNMPv3 authentication.
    Encryption Password Specify the password that the device uses for SNMPv3 encryption.
  10. Click Add Device on the Add Device toolbar.
