Internet Printing Protocol (IPP) attributes and values are registered by IANA. See the IANA site or the PWG site for a full list.

SavaPage uses two types of extensions:

L.1. Internal IPP Extensions

Internal IPP Extension attributes are intrinsic to SavaPage. To distinguish them from IANA registrations, their names have a org.savapage- prefix. Attribute value extensions with type2 keyword syntax are int. prefixed.

Attributes and values are summarized in the sections below. Attribute values are IANA registered, and the semantics can be found in the Reference documents. Attribute value int. extensions are described separately.

L.1.1. Internal IPP - PPD Mapping Extensions

These Internal IPP extensions are used to map vendor specific PPD options to an independent common denominator. They are never send to CUPS as print job descriptors.

L.1.1.1. org.savapage-finishings-staple

Staple positions are specified with respect to portrait media orientation. See RFC3806.

L.1.2. Internal IPP Job Ticket Extensions

These Internal IPP extensions are used in Job Ticketing Cost Rules. See Section K.4, “Job Ticket Extensions”.

L.1.2.1. org.savapage-finishings-ext

This attribute represents a finishing action, on a set of pages (a copy), executed externally by an operator, on the printed output.

L.1.2.2. org.savapage-cover-type


This attribute is intended for externally printed Job Tickets only.

The same PDF document must be printed twice with different page ranges:

  1. The first page(s) are printed on a single cover page. The cost for this action is calculated according to the Job Ticket Copy Cost Rules.

  2. The rest of the pages are printed on selected media. The cost for this action is calculated according to the Job Ticket Media Cost Rules.

L.1.2.3. org.savapage-job-sheets

This attribute determines which Job start/end sheet(s), if any, must be printed with a Job. Contrary to the IPP job-sheets definition, where sheets are part of the job, org.savapage-job-sheets are printed as a separate job. In this way sheets can be printed from a different media-source with distinctive org.savapage-job-sheets-media and media-color.

A job sheet is a single monochrome page with job detail information.

Table L.8. Internal IPP Attribute: org.savapage-job-sheets

L.1.2.4. org.savapage-job-sheets-media

The IPP media for org.savapage-job-sheets. Multiple keyword values are allowed, like iso_a4_210x297mm, iso_a3_297x420mm, etc.

L.1.3. Internal IPP Marker

These Internal IPP extensions are used to add a special marker to a print job. They are never send to CUPS as such, but translated by SavaPage to "real" IPP or CUPS options. IPP marker names have a prefix.


SavaPage creates IPP print jobs that are printed according to LandscapeOrientation Minus90. This is convenient most of the time. For example, when a landscape oriented PDF is 4-up printed, and staple-top-right and punch-dual-right are available as finishing. But, what if staple-top-left and punch-dual-left are the only options available? In that case a 180 degrees rotation of the "Finished-Page" is needed. This is where the boolean option comes in. This marker is added to each proxy printer as option to make the printed result "Rotate by 180 degrees", and translated by SavaPage to the proper CUPS orientation-requested and number-up-layout values.

AttributeKeyword ValueSyntaxDescription not rotate. by 180 degrees.
