Restrict TIFF image compression types that can be imported into the KFS Thin Client

Question / Problem: 

How to restrict which TIFF image compression types can be imported into the Kofax Front Office Server (KFS) Thin Client

Answer / Solution: 

To restrict the upload of TIFF images by the type of image compression used:

  1. Log into the KFS Administration Console.
  2. Navigate to Settings | Advanced.
  3. Filter for the kfsportal.properties namespace.
  4. Set the restrict.upload.compression.types value to true.
  5. In the allowed.upload.compression.types field, list the compression types that the user will be allowed to upload. To allow multiple compression types, use commas to separate them. (Example: GROUP4,NONE) Valid compression type values include:
    • GROUP3_1D
    • GROUP3_2D
    • GROUP4
    • NONE
    Do not include any dots or spaces in the list of allowed compression types
    KFS 4.x does not support the upload of LZW-compressed TIFF images into the Thin Client.
  6. Save the changes to the Advanced Settings by clicking the Save button.
