The name of the Input Port as it appears in the SAFEQ Cloud system tree.
Select the type of Input Port to create from the drop down list. An Input Port can be one of the following types:
- Push Queue: This type of Input Port will send the job directly to the output printer (Push Printing)
- Pull Queue: This type of Input Port will send the job to the Storage Service, where it will be retained and released when a user visits a configured MFP (Pull Printing)
Printer (Push Print only)
If port type ‘Push Queue’ is selected, select a printer from the drop down list that should receive the job sent to the Input Port.

The Pending Jobs view displays a list of jobs and the job owner (user name). If the input port is a Pull Queue this list will remain static until the jobs are collected by users at the MFP Device. If the port is a Push Queue, then the pending list will show jobs in progress as they are sent to the printer via the Document Output service.
Jobs being held in a pull queue input port, can be deleted by an administrative user with “DeleteJob” permission, by clicking the delete icon in the pending job list.
