With Cost Profiles, you can set Cost Per Page (CPP) values for all devices of the same model. When a device is discovered in your environment, the system automatically creates a Default cost profile for that device model based on the information in the GAP database. If you need to override these default CPP values for a particular model, you only need to do so once. Any subsequently discovered devices matching that model will automatically inherit your override cost. At least one instance of a model has to be discovered in your environment for it to appear in the default model list.
Here's how to assign your actual costs to a device model:
- Navigate to Discover > Cost Profiles.
- Select the Default cost profile and edit it.
- Locate the manufacturer and model combination you would like to override.
- Enter your actual CPP in the 'Model CPP Mono' and 'Model CPP Color' columns
- Save your changes.
You can remove any override costs by clearing the field, but keep in mind that an entry of 0 will be honored as an override value.
NOTE: After you apply a model cost override, there may be a short delay (a few seconds) before the system displays the new value. You may want to refresh your browser.
