Migrating printers from the legacy framework
Use this guide to migrate printers in your store from the legacy framework to the new framework in Associate App.
To migrate printers to the new framework, use one of these 2 methods:
- Use the printers API to programmatically set up new printers.
- Use the built-in printer management in Associate App to manually set up new printers.
To use only AirPrint printers, use the Update app configuration method and set
To use Star printers, set the correct
star_print_resolution, otherwise the resolution defaults to
200DPI. Use the Update app configuration method and set
star_print_resolutionto a printer resolution of your choice.
Migrating printers using the printers API
Depending on the type of printer you want to migrate, you must set up certain configuration properties. Verify the existing configuration properties for your business using the legacy printers API before you continue.
You have to provide specific data during the printer migration process, such as a
for AirPrint printers, or an
interfaceType for Star printers. As the new printer
framework supports more
documentTypes, ensure that you define printers and their output
documents before starting the migration.
This table describes the configuration properties required for a successful printing framework migration based on the printer type. You can learn more about configuration properties from the printers API schema.

After you have retrieved the required configuration properties, use the printers API to migrate your printers.
Repeat the previous step for each printer you need to migrate in the store.
When the printers have been successfully migrated, they are displayed in Associate App and function as intended.
