Printer Discovery and Configuration Profiles
MyQ simplifies and automates the import, activation, configuration of printers and installation of embedded terminals.
It works in two simple steps:
The administrator creates a configuration profile in the MyQ Web Admin Interface. They can set a Price list, choose the embedded terminal type (none, embedded REST API, Lite, Android, etc.), the login method (PIN, ID card, 2-factor authentication, etc.), printer credentials (administrator username and password), and network information (SNMP). These profiles can be cloned to save time and multiply the possibility of discovery.
Then they create a printer discovery profile. They enable MyQ to discover the network or they can import their devices from a CSV file. With network discovery, they need to set rules to identify printers: select the printers network range, how to save it (by address, by name, etc.) and name it from a template (model, ID, serial number, etc.) or from a CSV file.
Actions can be added to discovery profiles, to fully automate the process: by pre-set filters (e.g. device model, type, etc.), MyQ can add the printer to a queue and a group, set a configuration profile, activate it automatically and eventually install a windows driver. The administrator simply launches the discovery profile and the software scans the network: the printers will be correctly identified on the network, and configured as set. This way, the MyQ system anticipates future printers installation and is ideal for remote sites where a technician can't intervene physically on short notice. Multiple configuration profiles can coexist (to reflect the brands and/or terminals i.e.) and multiple printer discovery profiles as well (to represent different sub-networks for example, such as branches, remote sites, etc.).
