Datasource Properties Dialog
Displays information about the selected datasource, such as the database being used by the datasource, global document and folder security settings, and various other datasource settings.
Sets the datasource name, a display name if necessary, and the type of database you are using to support the datasource.
|Name||Sets the internal name of the datasource. If no Display name is set below, then users will see this internal name, plus the name of the computer on which the ProjectWise server is located: <servername>:<datasourcename>|
|Display name||Sets the external name for the datasource. If a Display name exists, users will see this name rather the internal datasource name as set above in the Name field. Use a display name if you do not want to show off the name or IP address of the computer on which your ProjectWise server is located.|
|Database Type||Sets the type of database you are using to support the datasource. The database that displays by default in the list is the database to which the datasource is currently connected.|
|Connection - ODBC Datasource||Displays the ODBC datasource that is currently in use. If there are other ODBC datasources defined on this computer and configured to connect with the database, you can select a different ODBC datasource from the list.|
|Licenses||Shows the current statuses of your organization's ProjectWise server licenses.|
Used to restrict access this datasource. For details, see Restricting Access to Datasources.
Database Users tab
Sets the user name and password of the account that the ProjectWise Design Integration Server uses to connect to the database. The user name and password that display are those that were specified during creation of the ProjectWise datasource. If the user name and/or password changes in the database, you need to update them here also.
Used to control the Spatial settings for the selected datasource.
Revit Integration tab
Used to set the virtual drive letter to be used by all integrated Revit users working in a particular datasource. Each datasource by default is set to use the drive letter R.
Managed WorkSpace tab
Contains settings that control the overall behavior of the datasource.
Contains the default icons that are used in ProjectWise Explorer. To change an icon, double-click the item to change, or right-click the selected item and select Set Image. To change an icon back to its default icon, select and right-click an icon that has been changed and select Set Default Image.
Displays various statistics about the datasource. By default, these statistics are updated every 12 hours, but this can be changed through the StatisticsFrequency setting in ProjectWise Design Integration Server's DMSKRNL.CFG file. The statistic update time is displayed in the bottom left corner of the tab. If necessary you can manually update the statistics by clicking the Refresh button on the Statistics tab. Refreshing statistics can take a few minutes for large datasources, during which time you will be unable to use ProjectWise Administrator.
Audit Trail tab
Used to configure audit trail settings for the datasource.
For details, see Configuring Audit Trail.
|Settings||Opens the Audit Trail Settings dialog, which lets you select which actions will get recorded to the datasource's audit trail history, and also lets you set truncating rules for each audit trail record type. By default, all logging options for all record types are enabled, therefore audit trail is effectively fully enabled a new datasource by default. You only need to turn off the logging options you do not need to use. Once these global options are set, you can set Audit Trail options for each user on the Settings tab of the User Properties dialog.|
|Move truncated records into secondary table||If on, the audit trail records, when purged from the main audit trail table in the database, will be moved to the table specified. If off, then audit trail records will be permanently deleted when they are removed from the main audit trail table. To specify the secondary audit trail table to use, turn this option on and in the text field that becomes enabled, enter a name for the secondary audit trail table you want ProjectWise to create in the database to archive the old audit trail records. If the table does not already exist in the database, it will be created as necessary when the records expire.|
|Copy audit trail records along with copied documents||If on, and a document is copied to another folder, the document's audit trail records are also copied over with the copied document. The same records also remain on the original document.|
Folder Security tab
Contains controls for defining folder permissions, globally across the datasource.
Document Security tab
Contains controls for defining document permissions, globally across the datasource.
Granular Security tab
Used to give one or more members of the Restricted Administrator group full access to datasource properties.
