Xerox Smart Device Integration (SDI) setup

This article will guide you with the setup of Print&Share CQ Smart Device Integration for Xerox.

We asume this is a default (factory reset) device.


  1. Make sure the Xerox printers are installed on the Windows Server by installing the specific Xerox drivers for your Xerox printer model(s). Normally this is on the server where P&S CQ is installed.
    (These printer drivers can be found at the Xerox website.)
  2. In P&S CQ navigate to Manage > Smart Device Integration > General.
  3. Enable shared folder, select Predefined shared folder and select Custom for Share user and fill in the Username, Password of a local user and leave the Domain-field of the local user empty.

    (How to create a local user in Windows.)


Note: with Xerox we had more success with a local user instead of a domain user for the Predefined shared folder.

  1. Navigate to Manage > Smart Device Integration > Xerox.
    Here you should see all Xerox printers. Every Xerox printer in that overview should have an IP address asigned to it, so that P&S CQ can communicate with it. You can asign an IP address to a printer in Manage > Output > Printers.
  2. Now we will configure P&S CQ on the Xerox printer. In Manage > Smart Device Integration > Xerox select a printer and edit it. Fill in the device Username, Password.

    Optional: when using batch key card authentication you should Enable the Convenience authentication.

  3. For Desired actions select Print&Share CQ app: Install and Apply.

If everything is configured correctly, you now have Smart Device Integration for Xerox configured on the device.

Administrators can further control and secure the Xerox printers (e.g. by disabling Direct WiFi, ...)
