Register a ProjectWise Project

Organizations can enable CONNECTED Users to register and collaborate on ProjectWise Projects. These projects contain project information such as Project Name, Asset Industry, Asset Type, Location etc. While creating a WorkSet in a CONNECT Edition product, you can associate it to a ProjectWise Project where the project information is included in the data files as properties.

Note: Project files, such as DGN files and library files are not stored on the cloud. They can be stored locally, on a network, or in ProjectWise.

What is the ProjectWise Project Registration Utility?

The Project Registration utility is an administrative interface for registering an Organization’s projects with Bentley. Registered projects are referred to as ProjectWise Projects. ProjectWise Projects provide information regarding the project themselves, as well as serving as a focal point for tying together other sources of project information.

For example, user and product usage for reporting and access to services available for each project.

Who can register a ProjectWise Project?

To register a ProjectWise Project, a user must have Administrator or Co-administrator privileges associated with their Bentley account. These privileges are required because registered ProjectWise Projects are Organization-wide resources that represent real-world projects and are used in many different locations for information organization and reporting. Therefore, access is limited to those members of an Organization with sufficient privileges to ensure that only recognized and permitted ProjectWise Projects be registered on behalf of an Organization.

Note: Users within the organization who were not designated as an Administrator or Co-Administrator who are requesting rights should contact their organizations Administrator. Bentley does not fulfill these requests.
