For example, if you specify NEWJOB_%MIS_JOB_ID%, the Prinergy job name will be NEWJOB_12345, where NEWJOB_ is the literal text that you specified, and %MIS_JOB_ID% is replaced by the value provided in the JDF.
Note: Job names cannot include nonstandard characters, such as / * \ , and the parameters must be uppercase.

Length parameters

Prinergy truncates job names that contain more than 93 characters. To manage the length, you can specify how many characters are to be included for each parameter, and at which character to start counting these characters. (Counting is zero-based, meaning that the first character is in the zero position, the second character is in the "1" position, and so on.)
The format for adding a length restriction to a parameters is %PARAMETER_NAME[a,b]%.

  • The percent symbol % indicates the start and end of a parameter definition.
  • %PARAMETER_NAME% can be %MIS_JOB_NAME%, %MIS_JOB_ID%, or %MIS_CUSTOMER_ID%. (These parameters must be in uppercase.)
  • You can include any number of the available parameters.
  • Square brackets [ ] contain your length-restriction settings for the parameter, in the format [a,b].
    • a is a number that represents the position of the first character to use in the job name, where 0 (zero) is the first character in the actual name or ID.
    • b is the number of characters to use in the job name, starting with the character that is in the a position.
  • Any characters that are not contained within a %% pair, including spaces, are treated as literal text that is to be included in all job names.
  • To determine the total length of the job name, you add the number of characters represented by each b, plus any literal characters.

Important: Be sure to use uppercase capitalization for the parameters.
