Let's use object model chart!

Status: Solution Provided
by *Expert Elite* | International Moderator on ‎07-16-2012 06:47 AM



Let's build and place an object model chart in our Idea Exchange, like this one for Inventor:




Also usefull describe charts for client applications: describe GUI and internal scheme (including links to Vault dll's):

  • Vault Explorer 
  • Autoloader
  • CAD applications add-ins
  • Job Processor
  • Wedserver
  • Custom apps
  • etc.

 Using this scheme we can see what are we missing, check collisions, and others.

In the same way that Vault AEC can write metadata and Revisions into the title blocks, legends of a sheet set in Civil 3d we need this in sheet sets generated by Revit and Revit Server.

for consideration ;


in our operation we have seen some file / folder ownership management problems  (inability to take ownership) seen between relicated servers. ie a remote server is down = no way to transfer ownership to other servers / sites.


i think there is the need to have some improved functionality on this topic and other general topics relating to the replicated environment.


is it sufficient to accept that if a remote server is down that there is no way ever to get ownership back of files back? despite very short or zero lease times etc etc.


i would have thought that the provider server would be able to force ownership back to itself or other server if the files were not checked out. i have searched to no avail & also have been advised by our VAR group that we cannot do this.

if that is the case then i feel that with some consideration of improved functional development that this would be possible or at the least have something along the lines of automatical ownership transfer configure to send ownership from remote sites after hours, back to the server who owns the files again before business resumes the next day. that way if a site does not boot up at the start of business, the other remote servers have the choice to take ownership if it is urgent.


this may not be the answer but with sensible discussion and development there may be solutions to the situations that could arise.

Please, consider possibility to check out Project links as a Hard links (for NTFS).

MiWaNiZa, Can you give a little more information on what you are looking for? Are you trying to force a working folder?

establish a system, where known issue go directly to the customer (especially platinum users)

e.g. WorkgroupReplication.xml issues and things where we can easily improve our system like web.config tweaks.

As part of the job configuration, an administrator should be able to specify whether a user should be prompted if a user attempts to create a duplicate job.


An example for this would be the create visualization jobs.  Users shouldn't be prompted that a duplicate job exists if they check in the file a second time before the first job was completed.


For certain jobs, you need this notification, for others it is completely unnecessary.  Also, it shouldn't go into the error log on the vault server.

MS Reporting Services support

Status: Accepted
by Contributor dmiller on ‎04-05-2014 09:05 PM

My understanding is that Vault currently uses a client local version of MS Reporting Services to render reports in the Vault client.  I would like to see support for the server version of Reporting services.  This way I could write companywide dashboard reports.  I would also be able to link Vault data to ERP system data.  We should have a way to use Vault API calls when developing SSRS reports.  If there is currently a way to do this I would like to know.

Index Block Attributes: Copy/Paste list of block names

Have the ability to copy/paste mutliple block names in one quick step.

We have approx. 50+ title block names, and it is a tedious task to import the names.




Also, we have 'version numbers' in our block names, so this is a 'living' and 'ever changing' list.

I'd like to see an addition to the Vault/File Status tab for a shortcut method to CHECK OUT INCLUDING ALL CHILDREN. Many times a day a have to go through the process of Vault/File Status/Options/Check Out Dialog/Settings/Include children and then the same again to turn the setting off.

Brendan, in Vault 2014 we have redesigned the Checkout dialog and it is much easier to perform what you are requesting with fewer clicks. When you upgrade to that release please give it a try and see if this addresses this request. If it doesn't update this idea and I will change the status.
