How to migrate Shortcut and Destination settings from one Kofax Front Office Server (KFS) environment to another




The ability to export and import Shortcuts and Destinations was first introduced in KFS (Fix Pack 3)

To export Shortcut and/or Destination settings:

  1. Log into the KFS Administration Console.
  2. Navigate to Settings | Packages
  3. Click Create
  4. Enter a unique name for the package that will contain the Shortcut and/or Destination settings
  5. Associate the desired Destinations and Shortcuts with the package
  6. Click Export
  7. Click Save As and select the location to which the package file will be saved.


To import Shortcut and/or Destination settings into a KFS environment:

  1. Log into the KFS Administration Console
  2. Navigate to Settings | Packages
  3. Click Import
  4. Browse to the package file location, select it, and click Upload
  5. Click OK
  6. In the General tab, select the desired Import Mode to indicate how Shortcuts and/or Destinations with the same names as existing Shortcuts and/or Destinations are handled.
  7. Click Import


When importing Shortcuts that point to a Kofax Capture Destination into a new KFS environment, the batch class, document class, and form type must exist in Kofax Capture.
