Automated Redaction

Automated Redaction
Foundation 22.1

In order to perform ad hoc Automated Redaction or an Automated Redaction process, the workstation must be registered for Automated Redaction.


A workstation used only to review and approve documents pending Automated Redaction or to create redacted versions of documents via Automated Redaction does not need to be registered for Automated Redaction.


It is considered a best practice to register processing workstations, such as Automated Redaction workstations, with a Named Client license rather than a Concurrent Client license. This ensures that the processing workstation always has access to the processing module; a workstation registered as a Concurrent Client cannot access the processing module if another workstation is currently registered for it.

To register an Automated Redaction license on the workstation:

  1. From the OnBase Client, click Admin | User Management | Workstation Registration. The Products Registered for Workstation dialog box is displayed.

    The right pane displays all products registered on the selected workstation.

    The left pane displays a list of the workstations that have, at any time, been logged on to your OnBase solution. The current workstation is shown at the top of the list and is marked with an asterisk (*). The following information about each workstation is displayed:

    Column Name



    Displays the symbols of the products registered for the workstation.

    The legend for the symbols is located below the list of workstations.


    Displays the name of the workstation.

    Last Logon

    Displays the date that the workstation last logged on to OnBase.


    Displays a short description of workstation.

  2. Make sure that the current workstation, denoted by an asterisk (*), is selected. Select Automated Redaction from the Products Registered drop-down list.

    If you are properly licensed for Automated Redaction and it is not available from the drop-down list, it may be registered on another workstation. Select each workstation that has a + in the Licenses column until an Automated Redaction license is found.

    To revoke the Automated Redaction license from the workstation, select Automated Redaction in the right pane and click the Revoke button. Then, select the current workstation and register the Automated Redaction license on it.


    If Automated Redaction is not displayed in the drop-down list and the license is not registered on any other workstation, it is possible that it may not be properly licensed.

  3. When you have finished registering the workstation, click Exit. The Products Registered for Workstation window is closed.

    After registering the workstation for Automated Redaction, you must relaunch the OnBase Client to reload the OCR engine and perform Automated Redaction on that workstation.
