Ingest Images and Documents

To configure a task to ingest an image file or document

  1. Create a new configuration to send to Media Server with the process action, or open an existing configuration that you want to modify.

  2. In the [Ingest] section, set the IngestEngine parameter to the name of a section in the configuration file that will contain the ingestion settings. For example:

  3. Create a new section in the configuration file to contain the ingestion settings, and set the following parameters:

    Type The ingest engine to use. Set this parameter to image.
    StartPage (Optional) The page in the image or document at which to start ingesting.
    MaximumPages (Optional) The maximum number of pages to ingest from a multi-page image or document.

    For example:


    There is no configuration parameter to specify the source. You must specify the path of the source file that you want to ingest as the value of the Source parameter in the Process action, when you start processing.

  4. Save and close the configuration file. HPE recommends that you save your configuration files in the location specified by the ConfigDirectory parameter.
