New with Bentley iCS for PDF CONNECT Edition Update 3.2, when mirroring the source folder to the destination data source, either for distributing renditions or source documents, a portion of the source folder path may now be mirrored instead of always the complete path. The amount of the mirroring is controlled via the “mirror depth” property of the rendition profile destination option. When folder mirroring is enabled, the default behavior remains to mirror the entire source folder path.
The mirror depth value is only relevant (and its user interface enabled) if folder mirroring is enabled.
The product does not support separate mirror depth control for rendition and source distributions. Rendition destination folders may be mirrored and source destinations not, or vice versa, but the single mirror depth value in the rendition profile destination option applies to all destination folders that are mirrored.
The mirror depth value is an integer, either zero, positive or negative. If zero, the full source folder path is mirrored. If positive, the mirror depth indicates the number of rightmost folders in the path to mirror. If negative, the mirror depth indicates the number of leftmost folders in the path to mirror.
If the absolute value of the mirror depth exceeds the number of folders in the source path, the entire source path is mirrored.
For example, consider the source document “\Documents\Users\John.Doe\Project\Test.dgn”. The mirror depth values below would result in the indicated deliverables under the destination folder.
0, >= 3, or <= -3
