On demand user creation

The On Demand User Creation setting defines if and when PaperCut NG/MF creates new users. The settings applied to newly created users are defined by their group membership (for more information, see Set new user creation rules).

By default, new users are created automatically when they print for the first time, authenticate via the User Client, or log in to the User web interface. This makes administration much easier, as there is no need to create accounts manually; users can use PaperCut NG/MF straight away.

In some situations you might want to change the way new users are treated. For example, when just one department is being tracked, but there are other departments using the same printers, you might want to allow the other departments’ users to print, but not to track them using PaperCut NG/MF.

To set the on demand user creation rules:

  1. Select Options > User/Group Sync. The User/Group Sync page is displayed.

  2. In the On Demand User Creation area, select one of the following options:

    • create the user on demand (default)—users are created when they interact with PaperCut NG/MF for the first time, for example, when they print for the first time.

    • do not create the user and allow usage—users without a PaperCut NG/MF account will not have an account created, but can print. Their usage is not logged.

    • do not create the user and deny usage—users without a PaperCut NG/MF account will not have an account created and cannot print.

  3. Click Apply.
