DHF Zolaris

Digicust integrates natively with Mic-Cust's DHF Zolaris. Just upload customs cases to Digicust. Digicust processes the case and sends the filled out customs declaration to your Zolaris system.

Many of our clients use Digicust as a black box and just check warning messages within Zolaris system before submitting the automatically created customs declaration to the authorities.


  1. The setup is easy. Configure the API directly in the Zolaris system.

    Click "Schnittstellenverwaltung"

Click the white white "new" icon. Then input the data as follows:

Instead of C:\DHF\Digicust\ you can set up any path you want to put the interface files to. Ideally, it is an SFTP server where Digicust can send the files to directly.

  1. To automate the regular import of interface files into the Zolaris application, we recommend setting up a Cronjob or using Task Scheduler on Windows. This guide will walk you through the necessary steps to configure the Task Scheduler for this purpose. To set up the Task Scheduler, follow these steps:

    1. Open Task Scheduler:

      Press Windows + R and type taskschd.msc, then press Enter.

    2. Create a New Task: In the Task Scheduler, select Create Task... from the Actions pane.

    3. General Tab:

      Name: Zolaris File Import

      Description: Automates the import of interface files into Zolaris

      Configure for: Windows 10 (or your specific Windows version)

    4. Triggers Tab:

      Click New...

      Begin the task: On a schedule

      Set your desired schedule (e.g., daily, weekly) and time

      Click OK

    5. Actions Tab:

      Click New...

      Action: Start a program

      Program/script: C:\Program Files (x86)\DHF\Zolaris\Zolaris.exe

      Add arguments (replace placeholders with your actual parameters): -s DB_SERVERNAME -d DBNAME -w 1 -u zolaris -l ZOLARIS_LIZENZNUMMER -o 1 -r SCHNITTSTELLE_ID -i Im_AF_Intra

      Click OK

    6. Conditions Tab:

      Configure any conditions as necessary, such as only running the task if the computer is idle.

    7. Settings Tab:

      Ensure Allow task to be run on demand is checked

      Configure error handling settings as needed

    8. Finish:

      Click OK to create the task

  2. In Digicust, navigate to your execution strategy settings and select "Submission".

  1. Customs cases are sent to Zolaris using SFTP protocol. Ask DHF for your Zolaris SFTP credentials. Then input the following:


DNS Name

The domain or IP of the SFTP server



Port of the SFTP server


Login name

The SFTP username



The SFTP password



The SFTP inbound path where to Digicust sends the interface files to


  1. Save the execution strategy. Upload customs cases to said execution strategy and wait for cases to arrive in Zolaris.

  2. The case should be filled-out and ready to hand in if Digicust has all information necessary. If not, try Configure Execution Strategies or set up Rules & Templates.

Happy automating with Digicust and Zolaris!


If the Dakosy interface is not working as expected, do the following:

  1. Use an SFTP client like https://www.filestash.app/sftp-client.html to check whether Digicust's interface files are arriving at the server correctly. If not, check the credentials and try again.

  2. The Digicust - DHF interface is well-tested and in production with clients. However, in rare occasions it might happen that interface errors occur.. Kindly forward any error messages to support@digicust.com. We are happy to help!

  3. Regarding task scheduler or Zolaris specific questions, please reach out to your DHF contact person.
