This blog article explains how to configure “Printix” printers to be used for printing with DocumentsCorePack.
You have to be a Printix customer to use this service and printers have to be available in the Printix-portal (as can be seen in Figure 1). Learn how to configure your printer here.
Next we need to get a Client ID, a Client Secret and a Tenant ID to enable printing via DocumentsCorePack. You can get this information as follows:
- Login to your Printix dashboard:

- Browse to “Printix Cloud Print API”
❶ Open the drop-down
❷ Select Software
- Generate API Keys: A window opens. Provide a name for your API key (e.g. DCP_printerAPI)

Configure a new “Printix” Printer for DocumentsCorePack
First, log in to the DocumentsCorePack Service Configuration.
Please note: Your DocumentsCorepack Service needs to be configured to handle both: Document and Print Jobs. Double click on your service and ensure the Job Type is set to “Both“
Once confirmed, you can start by clicking [configure cloud print]
This Cloudprint Configuration opens. Press the [+]-button to add a printer.
The „Configure Cloud Printer Configuration“-site is shown. To configure your Cloud Printer, you have to
❶ select “Printix” first.
❷ Name your configuration.
❸ Type in your credentials like “Client ID” and “Client Secret”.
❹ Press „Get available printers“.
The “Available Printes” drop-down lists all printers received from printix. Select the printer you want to configure.
“Printer Settings” – Here you can find a list of all configurable capabilities of your printer. Options listed depend on your printer and/or print driver.
Please note: If you want to change the specific setting, untick the checkbox to unlock. Then you are able to modify the value.
If the settings correspond with what you need, press the [Save Configuration]-button.
It’s done, your printer is configured and good to go!
