We are thinking about moving from traditional cell libraries to Component Center.
If I have a cellibrary->How do I import each model to Component Center (including model name/description) without doing this individually for each model?
Possibly I could split it up into several dgn files thru some batch process and use web interface to import. But then I will lose the description. Anyway to import description in the web interface?Running Microstation CE Updt 15
Hello,Name and Description only work in single upload - in case of multi-upload, one can edit the component from web portal after upload and add description or change name.
In case of multi-upload, name of the file is assigned to component name property and description remains empty.
Any word on when that oversight might be fixed? What is the defect number for this obvious bug?It doesn't make sense for a multi-upload tool to not upload the same information as a single-upload. Why does Multi-upload ignore such important information? Having to edit each component after upload defeats the point of uploading them in multiples.

I bet for internal use there are tools to import components with all details.
If your cell library have multiple models, you can upload that file from web portal. Select Components -> Click "+" to open "Add Component(s) to library" dialog, then you can click "+" or drag and drop your cell library to the dialog, all the models in this cell library file will be uploaded at one time, then when you select this cell library in MicroStation Place Component dialog, you'll see an "Attach" button(for file has single model, will be Place button), click Attach will open cell library dialog and it will list all the models with descriptions.
The multi-upload Naveed mentioned is upload multiple files via "Add component(s) to library", not upload multiple models in one single file.
