Required access rights for Hot Folder import in FlexiCapture 12 Distributed


What are the required access rights for the Hot Folder import?


The process that imports the files from the Hot Folder is the Processing Station process (FlexiBrSvc.exe).

It is needed to give full access rights (Read and Write permissions) for the Hot Folder to the account that is used to run the FlexiBrSvc.exe.

By default, this service runs from the name of Network Service, but if it's changed, you can check what account is used in Services > ABBYY FlexiCapture 12 Processing Station > Log On tab:

    Hi Anton, thanks for the post. How does one grant a read and write permissions to the Processing Station service? I'm able to see the properties of the service on my workstation, but can't identify how to grant permissions.

    Hello Stephen,

    The permissions for the folder can be set up in the folder properties -> Security tab.

    Please note that they can be controlled by the Domain Group Policies of your organization, in this case, please contact your System Administrator to give the needed rights for the user that runs the Processing Station service.
