Configuration profiles are profiles you can create and attach to your printer discovery, that contain essential information about your terminal's installation and settings.

You can create a new configuration profile in two places:

  • Go to MyQ, Settings, Configuration Profiles and click +Add.

  • When you are creating or configuring your printer discovery, in the configuration profile drop-down, click +Add new….

Both ways open a new configuration profile pane on the right side of the screen.

In the General tab:

Configuration profile settings - General tab
  • Enter a Name for the configuration profile.

  • Select a Price list from the drop-down. For further information, check Price List.

  • Check the Fax module checkbox if you can and want to use it. Otherwise, leave it unchecked (default).

  • Continue with entering the Administrator user name and Administrator password in the Printer Credentials section. They must apply to all the printers in the discovery. If these are left empty or entered incorrectly, the applied actions will fail.

  • In the Network section, select an SNMP profile, and in the MyQ server address field set your MyQ server’s Hostname.

  • Select Set up IP filters if you want to receive print jobs only from the MyQ server. With this option selected, a new IP filter is created on the printing device. The filter denies print jobs sent via LPD, Raw and IPP protocols from other than MyQ server IP addresses.

    IP Filters setup
  • Click Save. Your Configuration Profile is created. Continue to the Terminal tab to configure the terminal type.

In the Terminal tab:

Configuration profile settings - Terminal tab

  • Select a Terminal type from the drop-down. If the type you want is not listed, install the terminal package first (details in the next step) and then the correct type will be available on the drop-down menu.

    Terminal type options
  • Click Install terminal package.

  • Click Browse to search for the *.pkg file, select it and click Open. If you want to set a specific port, check the Advanced settings checkbox, and set the port.

  • Click OK to upload the installation package.

  • If you have selected one of the embedded options as the Terminal type, Login methods become visible

    Login methods

    You can choose between two types of login: simple login and two- step authentication. With the simple login option, you can select up to three methods of login, and with the two-step authentication, you can select from two combinations of the login methods. The Login methods are:

    • PIN - Users can log in by entering their MyQ PIN.

    • ID Card - Users can log in by swiping their ID Card. The ID Card has to be registered on the user's account on the terminal.

    • User name and password - Users can log in by entering their MyQ username and password.

    • ID Card and PIN - Users have to swipe their ID card, and then enter their MyQ PIN.

    • ID card and password - Users have to swipe their ID card, and then enter their password.

  • In the Copier operation panel idle time field, add a number between 1 and 86400 to set how many idle seconds it will take the panel to automatically log a user out.

  • Check the Automatic configuration checkbox, so that every new device is automatically configured, and the terminal package is installed to it, when activated. If left unchecked, you would need to do these steps manually.

  • In the Guest Account section, check the Enabled checkbox to use a guest account. The setup fields are now editable. Select the User you want to associate with the guest account. The list contains the default user User not authenticated by MyQ (*unauthenticated), but you can add more. You can also set what the guest user can see in the embedded terminal once they log in, by choosing one of the options from the
    Guest screen list: [empty], Topmenu, Copy, Scan, USB, Box, Fax.

    Guest account settings
  • The Kyocera section is displayed when the Kyocera terminal package is installed on the MyQ server. Applying the changes in the Kyocera section on the terminal require a force remote configuration of the device.

    • It is possible to change the Local Admin Pin. When the field is empty, the default value 1087 is used.

    • Log debug messages allows to enable/disable the Debug level of logging. If the setting is enabled, the terminal will generate additional log information for auditing and troubleshooting purposes.

    • Check the Language selection checkbox, if you want to give the users the ability to change the screen language when they log in to the terminal.

    • Check the Display numeric keypad checkbox, if you want a numeric keypad to be visible in the terminal's login screen.

    • Choose your ID Card reader type from internal or external. An internal card reader is directly connected to the printer. An external one communicates with the server over ethernet.

    • It is possible to configure FeliCa Card Reader Parameters when using a FeliCa card reader.

    • Check the Display My Jobs action right after logging in for displaying the My Jobs terminal action immediately after login.
