Ricoh devices

Note that this manual is for Ricoh Cloud Terminal which is in SAFEQ Cloud Web UI called Standard Gen 2. This terminal connects directly to the cloud. The first generation of Ricoh terminal can connect to the cloud only via a secondary gateway.


  • Make sure that you have Cloud Terminal Integration enabled (for information on how to do this please follow Enable Cloud terminal integration guide).
  • The server needs to use a certificate trusted by the MFD. If the server is not using a certificate signed by a publicly trusted authority, this means the Certificate Authority needs to be added to the trust store of the MFD. The deployment tool can be used for the import (see fetch-certificate command for import from SAFEQ Cloud in Terminal Deployment Tool, or see the CustomCA-README file located in <your deployment tool location>\certificates for custom CA creation and import).

    A certificate issued for an IP address will not be accepted by the MFD. The server must use a certificate issued for a domain name.

  • Assign the ViewEndpoint permission to your end users in SAFEQ Cloud Web UI. This is needed for the end users to be able to log in. See Roles.



  • In WIM, if you change settings that require reboot, or after you click Reset the machine, you must restart the MFD manually or via the Terminal Deployment Tool. Otherwise, authentication at the MFD will not work for the end users.

Cloud print

  • Selecting input and output tray is currently not supported.
  • Jobs are always printed as Collated
  • If matching size is not available, printer prints job on available paper. This will result in job not being printed properly.
  • Optimized print delivery is used to release print jobs locally without transferring them through the cloud, if allowed by network visibility. Optimized print delivery has the following limitations:
    • Print progress during an optimized print delivery is not supported.
    • If a problem with the MFD occurs during an optimized delivery, such as paper jam, no print error message will be visible.


  • Scan Workflows with JPEG output format will result in a TIFF output file if the color was set to Black and White or the color was Auto and the MFD detected a black and white document.
  • Email method scan file size is limited to 18MB. If the scan file size is over, the email is not delivered. No extra notification of such an event.
  • The scanned document is lost if the device is powered off before scan delivery completion.
  • The scanned document is lost if paper size is not recognized while scanning on the glass.
  • If you modify a scan workflow that is currently being used by a user at the MFD, the scan workflow will be started with the original settings. To apply the new settings, the user must close and open the Scan application or log out and log in again.
  • If the MFD's HDD is full, an error message or "Upload unsuccessful" message may not appear.

Installing Ricoh Cloud Terminal

You can install the terminal in the following ways:

  • From SAFEQ Cloud Web UI
  • Manually via the Terminal Deployment Tool

Installing the terminal from SAFEQ Cloud Web UI


  • This installation method requires you to have SAFEQ Cloud secondary server (Gateway) in your network. The terminal can only be installed from the secondary gateway because of network visibility to the MFD.
  • Your secondary server has the Terminal client service created, and the service has Cloud terminal integration enabled.
  • You have already created Ricoh embedded configuration and added your Ricoh MFD according to section Adding Embedded configuration and Ricoh MFD. When adding the MFD, in the Client Terminal Services and Service drop-down menus, you must select services running on your secondary server.
  • In your embedded configuration, the API key for installation field must not be empty.


  • If you plan to use other card reader than YSoft USB Card Reader, you must configure it manually. See section Configuring Ricoh USB reader.
  • Terminal installation status messages are not localized
  • If terminal client service is not selected, the installation will not start (nothing is going to happen after you click Install and configure).
  • If the terminal configuration fails, you must click Configure to run it again.
  • The installation implicitly trusts any device specified in the printer address field. Make sure you are installing only in case you are aware of what device is on that IP address. To prevent MFD admin credentials and API Key leakage, make sure that you know which device is on the specified IP address before you run the installation.
  • If you want to upgrade to the Ricoh Cloud Terminal from the Ricoh Embedded with Application Type Standard, or any other kind of Ricoh terminal, you must first uninstall the old terminal so that you can run a clean installation of the Cloud Terminal.


  1. Go to Embedded clients and click the icon next to your Ricoh embedded configuration to open the configuration.
  2. Select all MFDs where you want to install the Cloud Terminal.
  3. Click Install and configure. The status will change to Installing.
  4. When the installation finishes, the status will change to Installed.
  5. If you plan to use a card reader, configure it manually. See section Configuring Ricoh USB reader.
  6. If you receive the error message "Installed: Failed to configure SP options. Please refer to documentation for manual configuration." you must configure the MFD manually. See section Manual device configuration.

Terminal-to-server communication

By default, the installed Cloud terminal will communicate with the primary server in the cloud. If you want it to communicate with your secondary server, for example, to prevent print jobs and other data from leaving your network), you must change the order of domains listed in your Customer information in the SAFEQ Cloud Web UI. Your secondary server domain name must be in the first place.
