The Export Locking/Counter path is used by the PaperFlow export process to track the output created from the PaperFlow and PVE/ImageSilo XML exports. The incrementing data group ID is tracked which prevents PaperFlow from duplicating data group ID numbers during the export process.
Data group ID numbers must always be unique to prevent data from being overwritten when imported into PaperVision Enterprise/ImageSilo.
When multiple PaperFlow workstations export batches using shared jobs, those workstations must use a shared export locking path. Additionally, if different jobs (i.e. not shared) are configured to use the same Company/Department Name and Company/Department ID, those workstations also must use a shared export locking path.
