ProjectWise Client 10.00.03.434
ProjectWise Server 10.00.03.280
Thanks in advance,
This might help, although we originally thought user sync would work as you described:
User sync server PW Web - Content Management Forum - Content Management - Bentley Communities
OpenRoads Designer 2022 R3 (10.12) | Microstation 2023.1 | ProjectWise CE 3.4
I thought this too however tested with a user and the user was not seeing the project at all.
Even when she searched the project it was not showing in her project list. It is really a odd process, which should have some kind of indication the process is completed or a way to see which users have synced to the project.
Turning on sync does not automatically sync all users and groups. It will make it so that when users access the project for the first time it will check the projectwise settings and if the user has access to the datasource it will add them to the CONNECT project
It should work for users outside of the organization if they have permission to the datasource
It will show up in their projects list only after accessing the project which is when they will be added to the connect project
So right now the user has to access the CONNECT project to be added to it. The easiest way is for users to be given a sharable link into the CONNECT project to access the data initially.
A user wont see the project portal in the list at all until they first click on a link to the work area connection, once this is done it syncs the user and they will then see the project within the list. Opening a web link to a file or folder within the project will do. It seems crazy to me but that's how it is, took me a while to work it out.
Another way to bring users over is by syncing a user list in to DM and that will bring the users over but it then treats externals and internal staff which again is not ideal.
