IPP Job Object

A Job object is used to model a print job. Job objects contain documents. The information that is required to create a Job object is sent to the print sever in the form of a create request when you initiate a print request through the IPP client to the Printer object. The Printer object validates the create request, and if accepted, the Printer object then creates a new Job object. This object is uniquely identified by a combination of printer-uri and job-id attributes or a job-uri attribute. See IPP Operation Keywords for more details.
