Did you know that the Autodesk Vault behavior can be tailored to meet your own requirements to improve the overall usability and compliancy of your process?
Through powerEvents, actions like changing a status, checking in a file, creating a folder or item, can be extended with individual rules and checks or actions.
With powerEvents, rules can be customized. For instance, you may prevent a certain file type from being added or block a lifecycle transition. Through the simple powerShell scripting language and an easy access to the Vault API through powerVault, anyone with little scripting experience can tailor Vault to follow the required business rules.
powerEvents can simplify and improve your daily work by running customized codes to perform automated tasks, like creating links between files and folders, queueing jobs in a customized way on lifecycle transition, or creating sub-folders when a project is released.
If your release process involves different people with different roles, powerEvents helps you add the required checks during the release process, so that the right people in the right sequence will review and approve or reject the given information.
In order to ensure that your design data match the ERP data, powerEvents can connect to the ERP system with the help of PowerGate and verify whether the item number exists and is valid and the properties comply. If not, the release process will be interrupted and powerEvents will make sure that just compliant data will be released.
With powerEvents, you may queue your jobs for your Jobprocessor in a smarter way, according to your own criteria.
For instance, you may want to queue only the jobs that concern a specific file type or item category, or those that are more urgent so that they are processed faster.
You can check which job does what anytime thanks to very accurate job descriptions.
Typically, when a new project is created in Vault, such project has a folder structure containing templates and other standard documents. The creation of the project structure can be automated through powerEvents, thus reducing the required time and increasing productivity.
