Description

  The present invention relates to a data transmission device, a control method therefor, and a program.

  In recent years, multifunction devices capable of executing a plurality of functions such as a fax function, a network scan function, and a print function as well as a copy function have been widely used. Usually, these multifunction devices are provided with an operation panel having a touch screen function and an operation unit having hard keys, and a user calls a desired function from a function list displayed on the operation panel and operates the device.

  In addition, in order to ensure security and charge, when a user uses a device, user authentication is requested. In this case, the user performs authentication using a touch panel or a card, and the device can be used when the authentication is successful.

  Here, when the user uses the network scan function and the other device as the transmission destination is a file server, the user uses the IP address or host name of the file server, the transmission destination folder, the login as the transmission destination information. Specify the user name and password to be used.

  In the case of the reading resolution, a desired file format such as 300 × 300 dpi, a reading size of A4, and a file format such as PDF is set. Further, a color mode for reading a document, a transmission document name, and the like may be set.

  The multi-function peripheral reads the original according to these settings, and transmits the read image to the designated destination using the designated communication means.

  As described above, since there are various settings that can be specified at the time of transmission, there is a demand for simplifying the user's setting operation.

  In the case of transmission to the file server described above, the authentication information for logging in to the file server is often associated with the user operating the device. For this reason, authentication information used for authentication when the user uses the device is also used as authentication information when logging in to the file server without allowing the user to input again.

  In addition, the transmission processing executed by the user is often routine, and the transmission settings such as the transmission destination and the reading setting once input are stored in the device as frequently used settings. . The user can call the setting by pressing a predetermined button to which the saved content is assigned, and this facilitates the user's transmission setting operation.

  If the user wants to save the transmission setting to the file server described above, after the transmission setting is completed, the user can operate the menu displayed on the operation panel to save the transmission setting as a frequently used setting in the device.

  Settings stored in such devices are not always valid at the time of calling. For example, an expiration date may be set for the password, and the password to the file server may not be valid at the time of calling. In such a case, if the user calls and transmits the settings stored in the device, a transmission error occurs.

  Therefore, in an authentication information setting device having a function of accessing using authentication information including an ID and a password, an information setting device providing a mechanism for resetting the authentication information stored in the device when the expiration date has expired Has been proposed (see, for example, Patent Document 1).

JP 2001-167051 A

  However, some authentication information such as a password is valid not only when the expiration date expires after a certain period of time, but also valid only while the user using the device is logged in. Such authentication information is not meaningful even if stored in the device, and is not preferable from the viewpoint of security.

  On the other hand, in order to simplify the user's setting operation, it is required that the user does not perform the setting operation again when a frequently used setting stored in the device is called. For example, if the authentication information is not saved in a frequently used setting, it is not preferable from the viewpoint of operability to request the user to input every time when calling.

  An object of the present invention is to provide a data transmission apparatus, a control method therefor, and a program that have improved operability related to input of authentication information used for transmitting data to another apparatus.

  In order to achieve the above object, a data transmission apparatus according to the present invention is a data transmission apparatus that transmits data to a server, and includes address information for transmitting data to the server and a protocol for transmitting data to the server. Transmitting means for transmitting data to the server based on setting information including at least information indicating information, information indicating a file format of data to be transmitted, and first authentication information for the server to authenticate a user; Registration instruction receiving means for receiving a registration instruction for registering the setting information from a user, and information indicating the address information, information indicating the protocol, and file format of the transmitted data based on the registration instruction And registration means for registering setting information that does not include the first authentication information, and the registration means Call instruction receiving means for receiving a call instruction for calling registered setting information from a user, second authentication information acquired based on the user's login information when the user logs in to the data transmission device, and In order for the transmission means to execute the transmission process including the address information, the information indicating the protocol, and the information indicating the file format of the transmitted data included in the setting information registered by the registration means. And setting means for setting as the setting information.

  ADVANTAGE OF THE INVENTION According to this invention, the data transmission apparatus which improved the operativity regarding the input of the authentication information used in order to transmit data to another apparatus, its control method, and a program can be provided.

  FIG. 8 is a diagram showing an example of frequently used setting information (transmission setting information) stored in the history on the memory 109 in FIG.

  The frequently used setting information includes destination information 811, reading setting information 812, a file format 813, and others 814.

  The destination information 811 is information corresponding to the protocol to be transmitted. In this example, it is “file”, which is information necessary for file transmission. Further, the destination information 811 includes a password as authentication information used for authentication in another apparatus.

  The reading setting information 812 is information indicating the size and resolution. In FIG. 8, the reading size is “automatic detection” and the reading resolution is 300 × 300 dpi.

  A file format 813 indicates a file format, and FIG. 8 shows a format using a high-compression PDF and OCR. Other 814 is information other than the above information, and is a transmission file name in FIG.

  FIG. 9 is a flowchart showing the procedure of the registration process executed by the CPU 108 in FIG.

  The registration process of FIG. 9 shows a process of registering the currently set transmission setting as a frequently used setting, and this program is stored in the memory 109.

  In FIG. 9, the UI control unit 201 receives a save request from the user (step S401). Specifically, after the user operates the destination input button 701, the transmission setting button 702, and the like from the scan operation screen to perform a desired transmission setting, the user presses a “frequently used setting” button 704 to display a frequently used setting screen. A save request can be made by opening and pressing a registration button 802.

  Next, the setting value of the transmission setting requested to be stored is confirmed (step S402). Then, the UI control unit 201 determines whether or not the transmission destination included in the transmission setting in the confirmed setting value is a new destination for file transmission (step S403).

  If the result of determination in step S403 is that the destination is not a new destination (NO in step S403), the transmission setting does not include a password, so the transmission setting management unit 207 is requested to process the setting value as it is ( Step S409), the process is terminated.

  Specifically, the UI control unit 201 passes the transmission setting storage request received in step S 401 to the transmission setting management unit 207. The transmission setting management unit 207 stores the setting value in a predetermined area of the memory 109.

  On the other hand, if the result of determination in step S403 is a new destination (YES in step S403), the transmission setting includes a password, which may not be permanent. Therefore, the UI control unit 201 acquires attribute information regarding the password included in the transmission setting received in step S401 (step S404), and the password received when the user logs in to the image processing apparatus 100 is requested at the time of file transmission. It is determined whether or not the password is to be flowed (step S405).

  In other words, the login information that is a setting required to use the password used when logging in to the image processing apparatus 100 is the same password used for authentication when logging in to the image processing apparatus 100. It is determined whether or not interlocking is set. That is, the memory 109 stores a password used for authentication when logging into the image processing apparatus 100.

  Alternatively, if the image processing apparatus 100 is set to accept a password from the user when the file is transmitted, NO is determined in S405.

  If “YES” is determined in the step S405, a deletion / save selection screen for entrusting the user to determine whether or not to save the frequently used setting is displayed (step S406). That is, it is permitted to register authentication information required at the time of file transmission together with the file transmission destination. Details of this deletion / save selection screen will be described later.

  Next, it is determined whether or not the user has selected to save a password (step S407). If the password is selected to be saved as a result of the determination in step S407 (YES in step S407), the password is saved and the password deletion flag to be saved in the frequently used setting is set to OFF (step S408). move on.

  On the other hand, as a result of the determination in step S407, if password storage is not selected (NO in step S407), the UI control unit 201 deletes the password included in the transmission setting received in step S401 (step S411).

  Then, the password deletion flag stored in the frequently used setting is set to ON (step S412), and the process proceeds to step S409.

  If NO is determined in step S405, the password is valid information only while the user is logged in to the image processing apparatus 100, and is not permanent. Therefore, it is not preferable to save the password in a frequently used setting. .

  Therefore, the UI control unit 201 displays a deletion confirmation screen in order to prohibit registration of authentication information together with the file transmission destination (step S410), and proceeds to step S411. Details of this deletion confirmation screen will be described later.

  In this way, when the password is included in the frequently used transmission settings, the password can be stored appropriately depending on whether the password accepted at login is used as the password for file transmission. It becomes possible.

  10A and 10B are diagrams showing examples of screens. FIG. 10A shows an example of a deletion save screen, and FIG. 10B shows an example of a deletion confirmation screen.

  In FIG. 10, the deletion save screen shows “Password information is included. Do you want to register excluding password information?” And asks the user whether to save frequently used settings. It has become.

  In addition, the deletion confirmation screen displays “Password information is included. Registration is performed excluding password information.” This is a screen for notifying the user to delete the password. The deletion storage screen and the deletion confirmation screen may be displayed as pop-up screens.

  FIG. 11 is a flowchart showing the procedure of the reading process executed by the CPU 108 in FIG.

  The reading process in FIG. 11 shows a process of reading a setting value registered in a frequently used setting, and this program is stored in the memory 109.

  In FIG. 11, the UI control unit 201 accepts a read request from the user (step S401). Specifically, the user can make a read request by pressing a desired button from a “frequently used setting” button 801 displayed on the frequently used setting screen.

  Next, the UI control unit 201 passes the received read request to the transmission setting management unit 207. The transmission setting management unit 207 reads the transmission setting associated with the accepted frequently used setting from the predetermined storage area of the memory 109 (step S502).

  Then, the UI control unit 201 determines whether or not the transmission destination included in the read transmission setting is a new file transmission destination (step S503).

  As a result of the determination in step S503, when the transmission destination is not a new destination (NO in step S503), the transmission setting does not include a password and may be read as it is. Therefore, the UI control unit 201 sets the transmission setting read in step S502 as the current transmission setting (step S510), and ends this process.

  On the other hand, if it is determined in step S503 that the transmission destination is a new destination (YES in step S503), the UI control unit 201 confirms the password deletion flag included in the setting value read in step S502, and the flag is ON. Whether or not (step S504).

  If it is determined in step S504 that the flag is not ON (NO in step S504), the password has not been deleted.

  Therefore, the UI control unit 201 sets the user name and password included in the setting value read in step S502 as the user name and password of the transmission destination (step S509), and proceeds to step S510.

  On the other hand, if it is determined in step S504 that the flag is ON (YES in step S504), the password has been deleted. Therefore, the UI control unit 201 refers to the setting of the device and determines whether or not the authentication interlocking setting has been made (step S505).

  As a result of the determination in step S505, when authentication interlocking is set (YES in step S505), authentication information associated with the user specified using the user authentication function can be used as authentication information at the time of transmission. .

  Therefore, the UI control unit 201 determines whether or not the authentication interlocking setting is login information interlocking (step S506). As a result of the determination in step S506, when the authentication interlocking setting is login information interlocking (YES in step S506), the authentication information used when the user uses the device can also be used at the time of transmission.

  Accordingly, login information, which is authentication information used when the user uses the device with the card reader 110, is referred to (step S507), a user name and a password are acquired (step S508), and the process proceeds to step S509.

  On the other hand, as a result of the determination in step S506, when the authentication interlocking setting is not login information interlocking (NO in step S506), the authentication information associated with the user uses information registered in the key ring by the user.

  Therefore, the UI control unit 201 refers to the key ring (step S511), refers to the authentication information associated with the user specified using the user authentication function, and acquires the user name and password (step S512). Then, the process proceeds to step S509. That is, when the authentication information is not stored when data is transmitted again to another apparatus, the authentication information registered in the key ring associated with the user operating the image processing apparatus 100 is reflected in the transmission setting information. .

  As a result of the determination in step S505, if the authentication interlocking setting is not made (NO in step S505), the authentication interlocking setting is not made in the device.

  Therefore, the UI control unit 201 displays a destination input screen and prompts the user to input (step S513). This destination input screen will be described later.

  Next, the UI control unit 201 obtains the password input by the user in the password input field 1004 (step S514), and proceeds to step S509.

  Although the password included in the file destination has been described with reference to FIG. 11, the present invention can be applied not only to the password of the file destination but also to other passwords included in the transmission setting. For example, it is possible to specify the file operation authority acquired from the file operation authority management server as the transmission file format to be added to the file. At this time, the transmission setting to be stored or read may include a password for accessing the file operation authority management server.

  In this case, step S403 determines whether or not the transmission setting includes a password for accessing the file operation authority management server. In step S503, it is determined whether or not the file format included in the read transmission setting has a file operation authority.

  According to the processing of FIG. 11 and FIG. 9 described above, the authentication information requested by another device at the time of file transmission is permanent information that can be used when data is transmitted again to another device. It is determined whether or not the information is information (step S405). When it is determined that the authentication information is permanent information, the authentication information is stored (step S408). Next, as will be described with reference to FIG. 11, when authentication information is stored when data is transmitted again to another apparatus, the authentication information is reflected in the transmission setting information (step S509). As a result, it is possible to improve the operability related to the input of authentication information used for transmitting data to other devices.

  FIG. 12 is a diagram showing a destination input screen.

  The destination input screen illustrated in FIG. 12 illustrates an example of a file destination input screen displayed on the operation unit 105 by the UI control unit 201. In this screen, a host name input field 1001, a folder name input field 1002, a user name input field 1003, and a password input field 1004 are displayed. The user inputs these fields.

[Second Embodiment]
Since the configuration of the image processing apparatus in the second embodiment is the same as that of the image processing apparatus 100 in the first embodiment, the description thereof is omitted.

  In the first embodiment described above, whether or not the password is permanent is determined by referring to the attribute information of the password of the new destination file transmission. On the other hand, since the password is always changed, when registering a file transmission destination in the address book, the password may be registered every time it is specified.

  When the user designates a file transmission destination that is designated for input every time as a transmission destination, the user is required to input a password every time transmission is performed.

  If the destination to be registered in the frequently used settings needs to be entered each time, the password is not permanent.

  FIG. 13 is a flowchart showing the procedure of the registration process executed by the CPU 108 in FIG.

  The registration process of FIG. 13 shows a process of registering the currently set transmission setting as a frequently used setting, and this program is stored in the memory 109.

  In FIG. 13, the UI control unit 201 accepts a save request for frequently used settings for transmission settings specified by the user (step S1101), and confirms the set values of the transmission settings for which the accepted save request is made (step S1102). ).

  Next, the UI control unit 201 determines whether or not the transmission destination included in the transmission setting in the confirmed setting value is an address book destination for file transmission (step S1103).

  As a result of the determination in step S1103, if the address book is not the address book destination (NO in step S1103), the UI control unit 201 passes the transmission setting in the received storage request to the transmission setting management unit 207 because it may be stored as it is. .

  Then, the transmission setting management unit 207 stores the setting value in a predetermined area on the memory 109 (step S1109), and ends this process.

  On the other hand, as a result of the determination in step S1103, when it is an address book destination (YES in step S1103), there is a possibility that an input setting is made for each password, and there is a possibility that the password is not permanent.

  Therefore, the UI control unit 201 acquires the attribute of the address book destination of the transmission destination included in the transmission setting in the received storage request (step S1104), and determines whether or not the input is specified for each password (step S1105). ).

  As a result of the determination in step S1105, when the password is not specified every time (NO in step S1105), this password is permanent, and the process proceeds to step S1109.

  On the other hand, as a result of the determination in step S1105, when an input is specified for each password (YES in step S1105), this password is not permanent, and it is not preferable to save it in a setting that frequently uses it.

  Therefore, the UI control unit 201 displays the deletion confirmation screen illustrated in FIG. 10B described above, and notifies the user that the password is to be deleted (step S1106). Next, the input password is deleted each time included in the transmission setting in the received storage request (step S1107), the password deletion flag to be stored in the frequently used setting is set to ON (step S1108), and the process proceeds to step S1109.

  The reading process in the second embodiment is the same as that in FIG. 11 except that it is determined in step S503 in the flowchart of FIG. 11 whether or not the transmission destination included in the read transmission setting is an address book destination for file transmission. The same.

[Third Embodiment]
Since the configuration of the image processing apparatus in the third embodiment is the same as that of the image processing apparatus 100 in the first embodiment, the description thereof is omitted.

  In the first and second embodiments, when calling frequently including a file transmission destination, the user name and password are set at the time of calling, not at the time of registration, according to the setting of the device.

  For this, not only the user name and password but also the destination host name and folder name can be set at the time of calling.

  For example, from the viewpoint of security, there may be a setting in which the device can be set to send a file only to a specific folder associated with each user. In this case, the destination host name and folder name associated with the user are also valid only when the user is logged in, and are not considered permanent.

  FIG. 14 is a flowchart showing the procedure of the reading process executed by the CPU 108 in FIG.

  The reading process in FIG. 14 shows a process of registering the currently set transmission setting as a frequently used setting, and this program is stored in the memory 109.

  In FIG. 14, the UI control unit 201 accepts a read request from the user (step S1201). Specifically, the user can make a read request by pressing a desired button from a “frequently used setting” button 801 displayed on the frequently used setting screen.

  Next, the UI control unit 201 passes the received read request to the transmission setting management unit 207. The transmission setting management unit 207 reads the transmission setting associated with the accepted frequently used setting from the predetermined storage area of the memory 109 (step S1202).

  Next, the UI control unit 201 refers to the setting of the device in the UI control unit 201, and determines whether or not the file transmission destination is set to be limited to the My Folder (MyFolder) associated with the user (step) S1203).

  As a result of the determination in step S1203, when the setting limited to the My folder is not made (NO in step S1203), the UI control unit 201 refers to the setting of the device. Then, the authentication linkage setting is confirmed (step S1211), and the user name and password are acquired (step S1212).

  Next, the acquired user name and password are set as the transmission destination (S1213), and are set as the current transmission setting together with the other transmission settings read out in step S1202 (step S1208), and this process is terminated.

  Details of the processing of S1211 to S1213 described above are the processing of steps S505 to S509 and steps S511 to S514 in the flowchart of FIG.

  As a result of the determination in step S1203, when the setting limited to the My folder is made (YES in step S1203), the UI control unit 201 refers to the setting of the device. Then, it is determined whether or not my folder information associated with the user is managed by the authentication server (step S1204).

  As a result of the determination in step S1204, if the setting is limited to My Folder (YES in step S1204), the UI control unit 201 refers to the login information obtained at the time of authentication when the user operates the device ( Step S1205).

  Then, the host name, folder name, user name, and password associated with the user managed by the authentication server are acquired (step S1206).

  Next, the host name, folder name, user name, and password acquired in step S1206 are set in the transmission destination (step S1207), and the process proceeds to step S1208.

  As a result of the determination in step S1204, when the setting for limiting to my folder is not made (NO in step S1204), the UI control unit 201 refers to the key ring (step S1209). Then, the host name, folder name, user name, and password associated with the registered user are acquired (step S1210), and the process proceeds to step S1207.
