Publishing or unpublishing printers
When you publish or unpublish a printer, you’re making the printer available (or not available) to users to securely release print jobs.
To publish a printer - In the Printers list, click the printer’s toggle button to the right (turns green).
No group policies, drivers, permission issues, or fretting about platform types.
Unpublished printers can’t be used for secure release printing. You might want to unpublish a printer when:
- it needs a service and you don’t want any users to use it
- you don’t want it to be part of secure release but you still want visibility of direct print jobs for that printer.
To unpublish a printer - In the Printers list, click the printer’s toggle button to the left (turns gray).
Unpublished printers are tracked if you have enabled Direct Print tracking.
Restricting access to printers
If you want to stop people from printing outside office hours, or stop certain people from printing to certain printers at certain times, check out Printer access control. It lets you set up any number of rules and printing policies.
