This may need to go into the Product Administration forum, but since it involves "Civil" I thought I might start here.
We have a select number of clients who have their own ORD standards and configurations. Most of them do acknowledge that those standards are written for their internal systems and that adjustment will be needed for the configuration to work on any other network. The biggest difference will be where project folders and drawings are stored. The other would be for user preferences, which I would prefer to keep in one centralized location as much as possible.
I'm trying to wrap my head around the ORD configuration (and I get to work on it just often enough to almost forget everything).I THINK that any Organization cfgs load before any Organization-Civil cfgs, so anything I try to define at the organization level would be overridden by the civil client standards. I could lock it there, I suppose...
How are you handling configurations to minimize editing of client configs yet redirect to office resources as needed?
I struggled with this as well
Your Workspace config can specify which Civil Organization is loaded.
So I've set this up in such a way (so far) that the delivered client standards are under Organization-Civil, but when they user picks which workspace they are in, it loads the correct Organization standard.
For Workspace level, my plan is to use it as an too append or add on configuration files that are not from the client, but apply for use.
I don't know if this is correct. But it seems to work for the 3 sets configs we have now.
The screen shot below shows the order of the loading of the configuration files.
The red arrow shows the 'Organization' standards cfg file being processed (45). These get loaded first.
The orange arrow is the WorkSpace cfg file (UK Projects) (47) - the first thing that this file does is then load the 'Organization-Civil' standards (UK Standards in this case - 48) - green arrow..
Finally, the WorkSet cfg file is loaded (purple arrow - 49) - 'Demo 109.cfg' in this example.

Hey Mark Marnell How do you pull up the File history dialog?
Shawn Cooke - I use the Bentley Configuration Explorer application. The screen shot shows the application's file history dialog.
