Tech Specs

Below are the technical requirements necessary to support IPDAS in your organization.

Supported Server Operating Systems
  • Windows 2022

  • Windows 2019

  • Windows 2016

  • Windows 2012 R2 (End of life 10/23)

  • Windows 2012 (End of life 10/23)

SQL Server Requirements

Supported SQL server versions (Enterprise\Standard):

  • SQL Server 2022 (in testing)

  • SQL Server 2019

  • SQL Server 2017

  • SQL Server 2016

  • SQL Server 2014

For larger firms (approximately 100 attorneys), we recommend a SQL Server with 16 GB of RAM.

The IPDAS database will typically occupy 1-5 GB of disk space (excluding back-ups) for a large firm.

User Workstation Requirements

Supported client operating systems:

  • Windows 11 (through 22H2)

  • Windows 10 (through 22H2)

  • Windows 8.1 (end of life 1/23)

Supported Microsoft Word versions:

  • MS Word 365 Semi-Annual Channel (currently 2208)

  • MS Word 2021

  • MS Word 2019

  • MS Word 2016

  • MS Word 2013 (end of life 4/23)

  • 32-bit and 64-bit

Note: MS Word 365 will be supported while its current Semi-Annual version is supported. As of December 2022, that version is 2208. We plan to support future Semi-Annual versions of Office shortly after their release, but not necessarily on the same schedule that Office 365 offers them.

Supported browsers:

  • Microsoft Edge

  • Mozilla Firefox

  • Google Chrome

Supported Adobe Acrobat & Reader versions:

  • All Acrobat versions supported by EFS-Web

IPDAS Requires Java. Supported versions:

  • Open JDK 19 (Sun distribution)

  • Open JDK 17 (Sun Distribution)

  • Open JDK 17 Amazon Corretto.


Note: When Java 20 releases in March 2023, we will end our support for the Open JDK 6 month releases and limit our support to Open JDK Long Term Support (LTS) releases.  Version 17, the current LTS release, is scheduled to receive patches through at least 2026 (depending on the distribution), so it may be some time before we need to upgrade.


While we will ship patch updates to Java 17 with IPDAS releases, we also encourage our customers to deploy patches if they are available (from Sun or Amazon) prior to the next IPDAS release, and will support those patches.

GhostScript requirement:

  • All versions (including 10.x) are supported.

We recommend that user workstations running Windows 10 or later have at least 16 GB of RAM, although IPDAS can function with far less.

Supported Document Management Systems
  • iManage DeskSite (end of life 1/23)

  • ​iManage WorkSite (end of life 1/23)
  • ​iManage Work 10

All versions of the following are supported:

  • NetDocuments
  • Open Text Docs Open

  • Open Text eDOCS DM
