48. How do I configure EzeScan PRO+KFI to import .XST files produced by a Xerox MFD?

The following describes how EzeScan can import an image and XST file so the data can be used with EzeScan KFI.

Note: The Xerox template must be set to multipage TIF or PDF and EzeScan must be set to Import Folder Mode.

Instructions:

  • Admin Jobs (F6) -> Import Tab -> Import Existing Index File - set this to XST

  • Admin KFI (F7) -> Fields Tab -> Select "Edit" on a Field -> Value Tab -> Entry in data file -> (See below)

As we convert the XST file to an XML format for processing the "Entry in text file" value is an XML xpath query

For example in the XST file we may have:

CODE
[service xrx_svc_general]
{
string JobTemplateName = "ABC";
enum_DCS DcsDefinitionUsed = FX_APEOSPORT_C5540/C6550/C7550;
string JobTemplateDescription = "";
enum_encoding JobTemplateCharacterEncoding = ASCII;
string JobTemplateLanguageVersion = "2.0";
boolean SuppressJobLog = FALSE;
string NetworkUsername = "/";
}
end

to extract JobTemplateName the "Entry in text file" value can be either

CODE
    //JobTemplateName

OR

CODE
    //xrx_svc_general/JobTemplateName

Most fields can be extracted using the simpler first option unless there are multiple fields in the XST file with the same name (i.e. MetaData fields).
For a MetaData field below is the sample data in the XST file.

CODE
[description xrx_dscrpt_metadata]
entry_1{
string MetaDataFieldName = "Title";
string MetaDataPrompt = "Title";
string MetaDataDefaultValue = "";
string MetaDataValue = "scan by User";
}
entry_2{
string MetaDataFieldName = "Summary";
string MetaDataPrompt = "Summary";
string MetaDataDefaultValue = "";
string MetaDataValue = "this is a summary";
}
entry_3{
string MetaDataFieldName = "Description"
string MetaDataPrompt = "Description";
string MetaDataDefaultValue = "";
string MetaDataValue = "and the description";
}
end

to extract MetaDataValue for entry_2 the "Entry in text file" this value could be

CODE
    //entry_2/MetaDataValue

OR

CODE
    //xrx_dscrpt_metadata/entry_2/MetaDataValue

When the Job + KFI is run the respective value (that was typed on the Xerox UI)
will display in the KFI index panel.
