11.1 Prefaceadd section
With the help of the fee-paying endorser, you place watermarks on your images in the form of images and texts. This can be a logo to send BCS-2 orders CI/CD-compliant, but also text, e.g. to point out the special features of an order. It is also possible to position several endorsers on one image.
The “Endorse” function in BCS-2 is available in various menus and configuration steps:
- In the tab “Image” >> “use Endorser”
- In the tab “Job” >> “Apply an operation on the job” >> “Endorse Images”
- In the tab “Scan” >> “Operations after the scan” >> “Toggle Endorser after Scan”
- In the workflows in the script events
Note that the endorser feature works cumulatively. BCS-2 inserts all active endorsers every time the function is used, even if they already exist.

Description: Recognizable description of the endorser

On the other hand, the selection of existing data via the button “Select variable”. To do this, select the desired variable from the drop-down menu next to the button and confirm your choice by clicking on “Select variable”.
Use the “Font” button to set the font and font size.
A click on “Foreground color” or “Background color” allows you to define the font color or background color of the text.
BCS-2 displays the text in the selected combination of font, font color and background color.

Now select the button “Clone…” and BCS-2 displays the cloned endorser in the familiar configuration window. BCS-2 inherits all configured settings. Only to the name of the endorser it appends a two.
Edit the cloned endorser as usual and save it by clicking on “OK”.

Select the workflow that contains the endorser you want to import and click OK. BCS-2 displays a list of endorsers configured for the workflow. By default, all existing endorsers are marked for import. If you want BCS-2 to import only one particular endorser, click to disable the other endorsers.
Click “OK” and BCS-2 will import the desired endorser(s) and displays them in the endorser list.
Activate the imported endorser(s) by clicking on “insert active endorser for this workflow”.
