Are you using Enfocus SwitchClient to submit, route or replace jobs? Then I would recommend taking a closer look at the new Enfocus Switch 2017 Web Portal.
Not familiar with SwitchClient?
Enfocus Switch Web Portal is available when you have Enfocus Switch Core Engine and SwitchClient Module. It is a tool that you install and it allows you to, for example, submit and/or check jobs in your workflow. You create users with specific permissions and then they can see and/or submit jobs from their workstation.
Since Enfocus Switch 2017, you can decide to either use the Web Portal or the SwitchClient.
The main new feature of the Web Portal in Switch 2017 is the Job Client. You can now submit, route, lock and replace jobs from your browser. No need to install any client-side software.
Ready to give the Switch Web Portal a try?
There are a few things that you will have to do before getting started.
Set your preferences in Switch
Note: To use SwitchClient, set that option to “Legacy”.
Check your port number
By default it will be 51089 but it can be changed.
Get your Switch server IP address or hostname
This will be important to know when connecting in the browser. You can ask your IT department if you are not certain on where to find the IP address or the hostname of that system.
Creating your user(s) and setting its permission in Switch
Now you are ready to login.
- Open a browser, for example Google Chrome.
- Enter the IP address or the hostname of the computer running the Switch Server followed by “:” and the port number for the Switch Web Portal (as set in the Switch Preferences (Web Services category)). The default port number is 51089. For example: http://10.31.132.223:51089
If all went well then you should see the following:
Use the credentials that you have made in the Users pane in Switch and click on “Sign in”.
You are now logged into your Switch Web Portal and you can start submitting or checking jobs.
Please watch this video to see all the Switch Web Portal features.
Why not try it out?
There is no installation required, just going to the correct URL, logging in and you’re all set. Drag and drop a file or a folder onto your browser to submit a job. Creating specific icon(s) for your flow(s) for easy submission. Simple as that!
