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

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 in the MyQ Print Server guide.

  • 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. (The administrator user name and password are a mandatory requirement for the device’s remote setup and activation, both for devices with embedded terminals and without.)

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

  • Click Save. Your Configuration Profile is created. For configuring the terminal type, please continue to the Terminal tab.

    • 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.
