Claim of US Patent No. 9,060,080

1. An image processing apparatus including a generation unit configured to generate image data based on a document read via
a scanner unit and a first transmission unit configured to transmit the generated image data to a
designated destination, the apparatus comprising: a transmission server; an instruction unit configured to instruct, according
to reception of an uploading request to upload the generated image data to an external server communicable with the apparatus,
the first transmission unit to transmit the image data to the transmission server;

a second transmission unit configured to acquire the generated image data, according to an instruction from the instruction
unit, from the transmission server, and transmit the acquired image data to the external server; and

a management unit configure to store transmission history when the first transmission unit transmits the image data to the
transmission server as a first history, and to replace the first history with a second history that is the transmission history
of the image data by the second transmission unit to store the second history when the second transmission unit transmits
the image data to the external server,

wherein the management unit stores a reception number issued when the first transmission unit transmits the image data to
the transmission server in association with the first history, and replaces, when the second history and the reception number
are acquired, the first history corresponding to the acquired reception number with the acquired second history to store the
second history.
