Queues are print-in channels for acquiring SafePages.
After a tap on the button in the main menu this panel is shown. See Section 4.2, “Menu”.

An entry is displayed for each queue, with identifying data and some usage statistics. From top to bottom:
The queue's trust or status (at the top right corner).
The URL Path of the queue. The path is relative to the /printers URL base.
An inline Line-Graph showing the day pagometers of the printed pages over the last 30 days.
The full IPPS URL variant of the queue.
SavaPage takes the first IPv4 address
of the first network interface on the server
platform as URL host. You can overrule this
behavior by setting a fixed IPv4 address or DNS
name in configuration item
Optionally, the allowed client IPv4 and/or IPv6 addresses as a CIDR Set.
The period in which activity was accumulated on the pagometer.
The pagometer of the queue including the number of jobs and bytes printed.

In response to an IPP Get-Printer-Attributes request the “printer-name” is returned as “SavaPage-urlpath”. So, in this example the IPP printer-name will be “SavaPage-public”.
Enter IPv4 and/or IPv6 address ranges as a CIDR Set at IP addresses allowed to restrict access to the queue based on requesting IP address. If the field is empty all requesting IP addresses from private networks are allowed to print to the queue. See Section 13.5.2, “HTTP XFF Header Settings”.

Some reserved queues like Web Print and Mail Print can not be edited. Other reserved queues like AirPrint and Internet Print are untrusted by nature, hence the field Trusted cannot be edited.
IPP printing from public IP addresses is denied by default. You can override this behavior by setting specific public IP address ranges at IP addresses allowed.
The PDF of incoming PostScript documents on a non reserved and driver-print Queue can be routed to a Single Printer Target that is defined as of the Terminal that matches the client IP address.
ipp.routing.enable configuration property is
enabled (see table below), the following section appears in the Edit Queue dialog:
Select the option to enable IPP Routing for this Queue, and optionally enter an IPP key/value map in
JSON format to override printer defaults. In this example

Use IPP attributes for routing and optionally use PPD to IPP Mappings in the printer PPD Extension File for the target printer.
IPP Routing Queues are marked with a small printer icon in the Queue List.

IPP Routing Plug-in instances are called on an IPP Routing event, just before the PDF is send to the Proxy Printer. These plug-ins edit the PDF, for example by adding a header, footer and QR code image.

SavaPage decides to print the PDF to Proxy Printer “HP-Reception”.
SavaPage notices that an IPP Routing Plug-in instance is present. Therefore, it calls the plug-in with the print job parameters (User id "Alice", Client IP address 192.168.1.50, CUPS printer name “HP-Reception”, Print Job Name “Sales Report”, date/time of the print) together with the PDF to be printed.
The IPP Routing Plug-in calls a RESTful service of a third-party QR code provider, passes the print job parameters, obtains the QR code in return, and draws an image of the QR-code on the PDF to be printed.
