Here is the problem when opening a simple 3D model file:
Has anyone seen something like this? Would you have some suggestions how to debug this?
At Bentley's recommendation, I’ve done some testing on our managed workspaces adding each CSB one by one until I can reproduce the problem. It looks like it happens when the application CSB is added. The only thing happening in that CSB is that variables _USTN_WORKSPACEROOT and _USTN_SITE are re-assigned to ProjectWise folders. I can’t see why that would cause every files (including all versions) in the opened document folder to be downloaded.
is there a reason you're setting those variables at all? And why in the application level? Are you pointing them to the folder where the opened document is at?
If a variable resolves to a folder location then everything in the folder will be downloaded by the managed workspace including all versions. You can get around this by specifying a file extension (e.g. MS_CELL = folder\*.cel). With the extension, only the current file version will be downloaded (as will all *.cel files in that folder).
Unfortunately, some variables only resolve to folders (OpenPlant Modeler has many of these as do other applications)
We use a combination of this and the exclude rules to manage what is copied down.
Dave, We also note this issue, it presented itself when there were numerous files in the folder set to a variable. This needs to be fixed!
