Name Batches using Naming Convention defined in Batch Class


Question / Problem: 

How to configure Kofax Front Office Server (KFS) to name Kofax Capture batches using the Naming Convention defined in the Batch Class.

Answer / Solution: 

By default, when KFS exports a Job to a Kofax Capture Destination, it will use the following naming convention for the Batch into which the Job is exported:

{Scan Operator ID} - {Scan Station ID} - {Batch Creation Date/Time}


Kofax Capture allows the administrator to customize the batch naming convention in the Batch Class Properties.  KFS can be configured to use the naming convention defined in the batch class instead of its default naming convention.


To configure KFS to use the Batch Naming Convention defined in the Batch Class:

  1. Log into the KFS Administration Console
  2. Navigate to Settings | Advanced tab
  3. In the namespace, set the batchname.kofaxcapture.usedefault value to true
  4. Click Save


Applies to:  

Product Version
KFS 4.1
