* Transact Version 3.0.3.4+

1 Configuration is needed for the mail-import.properties file.

2 Transact Version 3.1.2.3+, configuration is needed for the folder-monitor.properties file as well.

† Instructions to utilize PDF XFA require additional steps; see PDF XFA Configuration for configuration instructions.

However, in order to process some formats you will need to make a few settings alterations.

  1. Navigate to the Ephesoft/Application/WEB-INF/classes/META-INF folder.

Windows 4030 Final-2015-08-12-06-57-41

  1. Open the property file named folder-monitor.properties in a text editor as an admin.

  1. On line 2 of the property file, add the supported file extensions that you would like Transact to process.

  1. Restart Transact.

PDF XFA Configuration

While Transact does support PDFs, PDF XFAs require additional steps for configuration.

Note: PDF XFA processing is meant for non-dynamic files. Using dynamic PDF XFA files may cause a loss of dynamic elements in the flattening process.

  1. Navigate to the folder-monitor.properties folder located at [Ephesoft-Home]/Application/WEB-INF/classes/META-INF/dcma-folder-monitor/folder-monitor.properties.
  2. Open the file and locate the pdf.xfa.process.static.content property.
  3. Change the default setting false to true.
  4. Restart Transact.
