Bentley i-model Composition Server for PDF Configuration

Bentley i-model Composition Server for PDF runs on top of ProjectWise Orchestration Framework Service and uses ProjectWise InterPlot Organizer to automate the creation of renditions (PDF, JPEG, TIFF, and/or CALS) from documents stored in ProjectWise.

Administrators use the Bentley i-model Composition Server Administrator interface (inside Orchestration Framework Administrator) to create, schedule, run, monitor, and review batch rendition jobs, while ProjectWise Explorer users can run on-demand rendition jobs on selected documents, flat sets, folders, and/or work areas. Upon completion of the job, the new rendition documents are stored in ProjectWise, and if selected an email notification is sent to the user who ran the job. As part of the system configuration, the administrator must define various rendition settings in ProjectWise Administrator.

Tip: As delivered, Bentley i-model Composition Server for PDF lets you distribute the newly created renditions (and/or source documents) to any folder or work area in the same datasource, or to another datasource. Through custom connectors you can distribute to other document management systems. Contact Bentley Professional Services about the availability of custom connectors.
