Component Centre is the new home for all of the OpenGround components that are available for you to download and install into your Cloud as required. Each component is stored with a downloadable file along with downloadable instructions that will explain how to get that component into your Cloud.
Component Centre is secured using the Bentley Connect Roles and Access, therefore users will need to be assigned to a role that has access to the Connect Centre.
This article will explain how to give access to users and also give a quick introduction to the system.
The links below preselect the filters to give you a filtered down list of components that are applicable for that configuration pack. Other items can be selected by unselecting the required filters as needed.
Please note that the individual region links below will take you to the general components page at the moment, where you will need to further filter down the components to match your needs. This will hopefully be resolved in the near future.
Component Centre can be accessed through the CONNECT Center, as long as the user account has the sufficient permissions to do so (see the section below if you require further information on this). After logging into the CONNECT Center, an icon will appear in the sidebar or in the My Services section at the bottom of the page.
Once the Component Center has been loaded, select the brands section on the left-hand side of the page.
On the Brands page, select the OpenGround icon and the OpenGround Brand Catalogue will then appear.
By default, a full list of all of the components will be shown. This can be scrolled through, searched or filtered down to show only the components you require as needed.
To filter the components down further, select the filter icon near the top right-hand side of the page and the filter options will then appear. It is then possible to drop down each one of these options and further filter down the catalogue to the options required.
Each component can then be explored further by clicking on the relevant component and then selecting the information icon on the top right of the page.
The component information tab will then appear. To download the component file needed to make this component work within OpenGround, select the Design Files tab and press the download icon to start downloading that file. Further information on that file can be found out by selecting the “>” icon.
If further information is required on how to install the component, the References tab can be selected and the relevant instructions can be downloaded by selecting the download button.
Users with Administrator Access for the Organisation can give users access via the role manager. If you require further information on how to modify team member roles, then see the following article, else this article will give a brief overview just for adding the Component Centre permission to an existing role.
Open the CONNECT centre and then select your organisation at the top of the page, then select the Roles and Permissions icon in the Resources section on the resulting page.
In the Enterprise Role Management page that then appears, select the Define Roles button to update a role with the required access.
From within the resulting page, an existing role can be selected and updated, or a new role can be created if required. Once the relevant role is available, select it and then browse through to the Service Access and Permissions section and find the Components Centre section, expand it and select the read permission and Save.
When a user next logs into the CONNECT Centre, they will then have access to the Components Centre option and will be able to access the components as required.
