I'm trying to make some changes to my setup of worksets in connect edition. Right now I have set the worksetroot to the following in my workset.cfg
_USTN_WorkSetROOT = P:\Proj18\$(_USTN_WORKSETNAME)\3 Projektering\K\
And my workspacesroot and down the line also the worksetsroot set to:
_USTN_WORKSPACESROOT = R:\Bentley\Workspaces\
This is because all our company's projects have it's own folder in P:\proj18 for projects created in 2018, no matter if we use microstation, revit or something else and we didn't want the .cfg file in that folder as well. But now I want to use the template function when creating a new workset to copy all folders and files from the template. Here's the weird part.
I created a new workspace called workspaceTest. Copied the buildingtemplate_SE (running aecosim but I guess that doesn't make any difference in the end) both folder and .cfg file to the new workspace's folder. When I now create a new workset called test1 with the buildingtemplate_SE as template a new folder and file named test1 is created in R:\Bentley\Workspaces\WorkspaceTtest\WorkSets alongside the buildingtemplate_se folder and cfg file. Now I copy the buildingtemplate_SE's folder to P:\Proj18 and change to _USTN_WorkSetROOT = P:\Proj18\$(_USTN_WORKSETNAME)/ in the buildingtemplate_SE.cfg. When I then create a new workset called test2 with buildingtemplate_SE as template a folder called test2 is created in R:\Bentley\Workspaces\WorkspaceTtest\WorkSets, not in P:\Proj18. But when I try to open a file in the workset test2 an error says the path P:\proj18\test2\design can't be found.
So, is there a variable available to separate the folder from the cfg file in some way?

I have experienced this also, though I wasn't getting the WorkSet folder under the Workspace/WorkSets location. It seems that when using a WorkSet seed that it isn't parsed to find out where its folders exist. If you leave everything in the default location it works well but in reality this isn't what is needed.The Defect we have on this is Defect 942787
Don't be afraid to question the status quo
Ok, thanks. Do you have an estimated time of when this could be fixed? Is there some way I can check on that defect? If this would work the way it should, it would improve our workflow pretty much actually.
Bentley told us this would be addressed in u13
