Configuration process

The following is an exemplary set of steps to set up Pure Cloud printing. Your setup may differ according to what kind of queues, authentication, terminals, etc, you are going to use.

Pure Cloud printing


Your tenant in SAFEQ Cloud is created, and you have received your username and password to log in to the SAFEQ Cloud Web UI.

Adding a pull queue

Configuring authentication

SAFEQ Cloud supports three types of authentication:

  • Local user authentication
  • Authentication to external directory using a service account
  • Authentication to external directory performed on the client side (client-based authentication)

For details, see Authentication providers.

Example: Setting up Microsoft Entra client-based authentication

  3. Fill in:
    1. Name – Enter an internal name used for identifying the particular authentication provider configuration.
    2. Domain – Enter your organization's domain. It should match “@domain” part of the users who will use it to authenticate to SAFEQ Cloud.
    3. Type – Select Client
    4. Identity provider – Select Microsoft Azure OAuth2
    5. Service – Select authentication service
  4. Click Test to see if the connection works.
  5. Click Save.
  6. Go to Access Control.
  7. Click Add to create a new access control entry. This will grant permissions to the end users to log in to SAFEQ Cloud.
  8. In Authentication Provider, select your newly created authentication provider.
  9. In Security role, select Users.
  10. Click Search.
  11. Authenticated users will be displayed.
  12. Click Save.

For more information on client authentication, see Client authentication.

Installing SAFEQ Cloud Client

SAFEQ Cloud Client is a desktop application that can be installed on end-user workstations to create print queues and install the SAFEQ Cloud universal driver automatically. For its features, see SAFEQ Cloud Client.

The Client can operate in two modes: Local storage mode and Gateway mode. For details, see SAFEQ Cloud Client overview.

Both modes can be used in the Pure Cloud printing scenario, but we recommend using the Local mode. In the Pure Cloud printing scenario, the Gateway mode has the following limitations:

  • Direct printing is not possible.
  • Releasing the print job from the Mobile application is not possible.

  1. To download the latest version, go to 

    Y Soft Partner Portal at

    • In Product, click SAFEQ Cloud.
    • In Type, click Installation files.

  2. Download the Client.
  3. Log in to SAFEQ Cloud Web UI. Go to Customer information to see your Domain.

  4. Run the Client installer file. On the Server parameters screen, fill in the Domain in the Server address or host name and in Account domain name.

  5. In User authentication:
    1. Select Custom login to SAFEQ Cloud server if you wish to log in with your Customer admin account (Local account).
    2. Select OpenID Connect if you wish to log in with your Entra account and the authentication to SAFEQ Cloud is set up as client-based.
  6. If you wish to use the Local storage mode, select Enable local storage and direct print job delivery.
  7. When the installation is finished, you will see the Client icon in your system tray.

     Right-click it and select Login.

    Note that if the option to Automatically trust new clients/servers is disabled in the Security menu of SAFEQ Cloud Web UI, you will need to authorize each end user's SAFEQ Cloud Client in Infrastructure > Endpoints.

  8. The print queues you created in SAFEQ Cloud Web UI will be synchronized and visible in your Printers and scanners.

For silent installation and the available command line parameters, see Installing SAFEQ Cloud Client on Windows and Installing SAFEQ Cloud Client on macOS.

For deployment via Microsoft Intune, see Deploy SAFEQ Cloud PC Client using Microsoft Intune.

Mobile printing

  1. Log in to SAFEQ Cloud Web UI.
  2. Go to Mobile Print and click Edit.
  3. In Mobile print service, select mobileprint service. Leave the other settings at their default options.
  4. Click Save.
  5. Download the Mobile app:
  6. Configure the app settings and log in. See Mobile app guide.
  7. Submit your print job. See printing.

Adding a printer

The following instructions use Fujifilm BI MFD as an example.

  1. Set up the MFD according to the instructions for your MFD brand. See section Device Setup.
  2. Use Terminal Deployment Tool to install the Cloud Terminal on your MFD. See Terminal Deployment Tool.
  3. Create the terminal configuration in Printers > Embedded Clients. See Embedded.
  4. Register the MFD in SAFEQ Cloud Web UI. See sections Registering Cloud Terminal in the SAFEQ Cloud web interface and Adding FUJIFILM BI printer and Embedded configuration in SAFEQ Cloud Web UI.
  5. Perform post-installation setup of the MFD, see section Finishing device setup after cloud terminal installation/configuration.

Releasing a print job at the MFD

The end users can authenticate at the MFD via card, PIN (short ID), username/password, or combination of these methods.

For generating a PIN, see My Profile and Short IDs.

For card self-registration at the MFD, see Using FUJIFILM BI Cloud Terminal, section Activating a New ID Card.

After logging in at the MFD, you will see the My Quick Actions screen. Tap Print all or My print jobs.
