PaperCut introduced Integrated Scanning for PaperCut MF in version 15.3. Using this functionality, users can scan documents to predefined folders or email addresses. To make it easier to scan to user’s home folder, this information is imported in PaperCut automatically when using Active Directory as the sync source. This information is available under the “User Details” page. See screenshot below:

By default, PaperCut imports userís home folder information from standard Home directory field in AD. In some organizations, they store this information in alternate fields in Active Directory, and would like these to be imported into PaperCut to use it with integrated scanning.

To configure PaperCut to import the Home folder from a different AD field:

  1. Login to the admin interface.
  2. Select the Options section, then the User/Group Sync tab.
  3. Select the LDAP user source. For detailed instructions on LDAP setup see the manual.
  4. Apply the changes and perform a test to ensure your LDAP configuration is working as expected.

When using PaperCutís LDAP as the sync source,userís home folder information can be imported from certain fields. You can set the ldap.schema.home-directory-field fields to change the AD field that is used to retrieve this information from LDAP.
