In Vault objects have a property called path. I like to use the property in a rule when determin which category the part is.

For example:

If path contains "LIBRARY" category_name = "Library parts"

If path contains "DESIGN" category_name = "Design parts"

If path contains "Content Center Files" category_name = "CC parts"


In this way a user only has to place the part at teh right location on disk. During initial check in it will get the correct category automaticly.

I would like to have controls over the types of files that the Job Processor creates visualisation files for (DWF's).


I use the CC for about 50% of the parts in an assy and I have the visualisation files created on Lifecycle change to Released. I don't need visualisation files (DWF) to be generated for Bolted Connections, placed Content Centre files (standard or custom), Frame Generator files and such. I have no need to see DWF's of these or to supply them to another user. And the assy DWF file doesn't need the child DWF's either. It's just clogging up an already taxed Job Processor machine.

ACADE block library

Status: Under Review
by Valued Contributor m_simons on ‎08-20-2012 04:38 AM

It would be nice to see native support for the ACADE block library in Vault similar to the way it already handles content center.


I was able to sort-of finagle vault to work with an ACADE block library but it was not ideal.

The Vault search text box displays "Search Projects" or "Search Vault Explorer ($)" - often when clicking in the search text box the default text is not cleared and what ever is typed is added to the default text.  The result is that the search is not done correctly.


This behaviour is shown in the attached screen shot.


According to Autodesk Customer Support this behaviour has existed for several releases of the Vault.


I would like the search box default text to clear when clicking in the box to enter data.

More properties for inventor content center file

Status: Accepted
by Valued Contributor smilinger ‎07-03-2012 01:35 AM - edited ‎07-03-2012 01:38 AM

Some properties of the content center parts is very important but missing in Vault. For example:


the Standard property, the Size Designation property, and the IsCustomPart property.


All these properties are available in inventor (or in Inventor API) but not available in Vault.

Status: Accepted
Have you tried mapping these properties to UDPs?

Tool Palettes within Vault

Status: Future Consideration
by Distinguished Contributor randyspear6624 on ‎03-26-2013 05:25 PM

The ability to store and path all tool palette content (including supporting .atc files) within vault. It would solve several issues including security admin and performance.

Implement an option in Vault setting to enforce/lock Content-Center Language for Vault project ; in the same way as it can be done with Inventor project file.

The goal is to avoid multi-language CC parts like that:



This situation can occurred when you work in a multinational team where folks use Inventor with localized GUI:

Content-Center is automatically switched to the same language and/or can be too easly changed.


PS: tihs option can also to hosted by *.ipj file


Thank you

Better Engineering Change Order Dialog

-Make Detaildescription (1) higher and Properties (2) lower.


Now when i change the height of the window, the height from the Propertiesfield (2) is also changed.

It would be better if the height of the Detaildescription (1) is changed and not the Propertiesfield (2).

Fix the shared server problems

Status: Solution Provided
by Contributor Geveke on ‎08-20-2012 06:33 AM

When setting up a network path for a shared server, it is possible for users to get files from the library or content center (on that shared server) and have them checked out, possibility to modify these files and have them checked in again.


This behaviour should NOT be possible, users can 'destroy' a carefully build library this way.
