      Connectivity with external services is now also possible through Webhooks. Aimed at script-writers, App creators and integrators, this essential new tool will transform the way Switch flows and scripts connect to external services.

      Simply put, Webhooks allow external applications or services to send notifications to Switch. For example, a notification could contain the status of a job or trigger an update when a new order comes in via the MIS system.

        Metadata Module

        The Switch Metadata Module enhances the use of metadata in Switch flows. In addition to Switch- specific metadata, you will be able to use metadata originating from other applications or that are stored in other formats other formats, such as XML or JDF tickets, that are common in the graphic arts industry.

        Metadata is information about the job or file that you are processing, such as its size, creation date, number of pages, paper type and author. In Switch, this information can be used to automatically route jobs, rename them and to make many other processing decisions.

        • XML pickup and JDF pickup are used to extract metadata from an external XML or JDF job ticket (usually submitted together with the job).
        • XMP inject allows you to add or modify XMP metadata to a job.
        • Opaque pickup helps you associate an arbitrary file with a job as metadata.
        • Export metadata allows you to extract internal metadata and to save it to an external XML file. You can then use the XSLT transform tool to convert the resulting output file to the format of your choice (XML, HTML or text).
