Configuration Locations

In OpenPlant PID CONNECT Edition, you can define two Configuration locations at install time.

First is the Delivered or Installed Configuration. This is the location where the example WorkSpaces are installed. By default, it is installed in C:\ProgramData\Bentley\<product_name> CONNECT Edition\Configuration\ folder. To install it at another location, select the location in the Delivered Configuration field in the Configuration page of the installer.

Second Configuration is the Custom or Shared Configuration, which can contain user’s WorkSpaces and WorkSets. To change the path of this Configuration, in the Configuration page, select the Custom Configuration (plus Delivered Configuration) radio button and then set the path in the Custom Configuration field. This Custom Configuration path is in turn written in the ConfigurationSetup.cfg file. The WorkSpaces created in this Configuration are displayed as Custom Configuration WorkSpaces in the Work Page.

Note: It is highly recommended that you use the Custom Configuration for your work and not the Delivered Configuration. The Delivered Configuration primarily contains example data for your reference and may get updated in future releases.

Post-installation, you can define a third Configuration location using the <-WR> command line argument. Such a Configuration is displayed as User Configuration in the WorkSpaces drop-down list in the Work Page.
