Need ability to disable Autodesk 360 Cloud Features

Status: Implemented
by Distinguished Contributor Thomas.Rambach on ‎12-12-2012 05:10 AM

We require the ability to disable (wiithout ability for users to bypass) all Autodesk 360 cloud features. This is a security risk for my industry and would not be allowed per government regulations.

Status: Implemented
This idea has been implemented within Autodesk Inventor 2015. Special thanks to the author of this Idea and likewise to everyone who cast your Kudo for it. Enhancements were made within the Inventor 2015 Installer so that Autodesk 360 is available as a shared component. It can be deselected to prevent its installation, or it can be installed in a disabled state, to be enabled later. Please be sure to check this out in Autodesk Inventor 2015. Thanks!

This is the first time I've actually seen Autodesk reply to an idea to say that it has been implemented. Well done Dan Szymanski!

"Cloud" anything is a bad idea all around. I am glad the fixed this.

This is indeed a show stopper for anybody with security requirements. ie military work.

Software companies love the idea because they want to be joined at the hip with the user and it means recurring revenue.

Hackers and spies like the idea because it is easy to get a hold of your information.
