The Components Center is a cloud-based service for managing, sharing and creating content catalogs.

The Components Center give the user the opportunity to:
  • Have immediate access to the latest published content from Bentley.
  • Maintain custom content on the Component Center making catalog administration easy. Changes pushed to the Components Center are automatically available to all users in the organization.
The option to enable Component Center functionality is found in the Component Center page of the Options dialog.
SettingDescription
Enable components center This option enables the Components Center functionality. When enabled, the catalogs in the Components Center will be available when placing a symbol.
  • Local content - Places the local catalog's version of the symbol.
  • Components center content - Places the Component's Center version of the symbol.
Placement Priority If you have symbols which are stored both in the local catalogs and in the Components Center, the placement priority determines which catalog symbol will be the default used.
Clear Cache When you place a symbol from the Components Center, it downloads the symbol file to a local cache folder. Placing additional instances of the same symbol will use the local cached version of the symbol. This option deletes all of the downloaded content from the local cache folder so if the same symbols need to be placed again from the Component Center the system would need to download them again.
