  • If the MAXIMUM CAPTURE DOCUMENT SIZE (PAGES) is set, the Agent will not capture any documents that exceed the number of pages specified in the field. In the above example, any document which has more than 50 pages will not be captured.
  • The EXCLUDED PRINTER NAME (REGEXP) lets you exclude any printers that matches the specified regular expression. In the above example, any printer that starts with the name 'epson' will not be monitored.

Note:

You can toggle the document capture by using the CAPTURE ACTUAL DOCUMENT option. If you enable it, you can then view the documents being printed and download copies of them from the BI Reports > Printing screen:

Please see the User Guide >Editing Printed Doc / Printer Settings section to learn more about these settings. 

Agent: Configure Auto-Update

You can now enable/disable auto-update of the Agent from its configuration file (usually located at this location: /usr/local/teramind/agent/etc/agent.conf).

To prevent auto-update of the Agent, add this line in the agent.conf file:

disable-autoupdate=1

To enable the auto-update, use this line instead:

disable-autoupdate=0

Improvements

Cached Behavior Policies and Rules

The Agent now stores a copy of the Behavior Policies and Rules locally to speed up their processing and better offline enforcement.

HTML Alert Messages Displayed Incorrectly

If you used the CUSTOM USER ALERT HTML option on the Settings > Alerts screen to create a HTML alert template and then used the USE HTML TEMPLATE option with a rule's Warn/Block action, the alert would be shown incorrectly to the user:
