Mass imaging creates TIFF or JPEG images for a document set based on the settings in the imaging profile you select. Relativity also provides a default imaging profile that you can use out-of-the-box. You can customize profiles to create color JPEG images, adjust image size, and leverage other formatting options.
Note: Beginning in Relativity 9.5.342.116, the Imaging Request Agent is required to run any imaging job in your environment. This agent is responsible for performing background tasks when any imaging request is submitted via mass imaging, image on the fly, or imaging set. For initial installations of Relativity 9.5.342.116, an Imaging Request Agent is automatically installed and enabled in your environment. If you're upgrading to Relativity 9.5.342.116 or if at any point you need to install an additional agent, you need to do so manually. Beginning in Relativity 9.5.370.136, the Imaging Response Agent is also required to run any imaging job in your environment. This agent is responsible for properly picking up imaging set, mass imaging and image-on-the-fly messages from Service Bus (as published by Workers) and directing them to the proper finalization logic in Relativity. For initial installations of Relativity 9.5.370.136, an Imaging Response Agent is automatically installed and enabled in your environment. If you're upgrading to Relativity 9.5.370.136 or if at any point you need to install an additional agent, you need to do so manually.
The mass image operation uses the same technology as the Relativity native file viewer.
Note: The mass image operation is disabled if the Imaging application isn't installed.
To perform a mass image operation, perform the following steps:
Note: You can't use mass operations on Data Grid-enabled fields.
- From the mass operations bar on the document list, choose whether to image Checked items or All items in the current returned set.
Note: The maximum number of documents you can select at one time for the mass image action is 10,000 documents. If the number of documents selected exceeds this value, a warning appears and prevents the job from running. If you want to image more than 10,000 documents, create and run an imaging set.
See Imaging sets and Running an imaging set.
- Select Image in the drop-down menu.
The Image Documents pop-up displays.
Select a Source Type.
- Select an option in the Imaging Profile drop-down menu. Only profiles that you have permissions to use appear. You can also use the Default profile for the imaging job.
Click OK to create the images. Depending on the number of documents you submit, this may take some time. Image-on-the-fly jobs take precedence over batch image jobs.
Note: The default priority for all image jobs is determined by the current value of the
ImagingJobPriorityDefaultentry in the Instance setting table.
Note: If any of the documents you selected to image is of a type that is included in the Restricted Native Types object on the imaging profile you selected for the mass image job, that document can't be imaged and you receive a corresponding error message.
