Define the administration settings

In the Administration - Settings dialog box, administrators can define in which way Tekla EPM can be used. For example, administrators can only allow each user to have one Tekla EPM session open at a time. In addition, administrators can define a password policy that all Tekla EPM passwords need to follow.

  1. Click the File ribbon tab in the upper-left corner of the Tekla EPM window.
  2. On the File menu, select Administration.
  3. Click the Administration ribbon tab.
  4. On the menu, select Settings.

  5. On the General tab of the Administration - Settings dialog box, define the settings according to your needs:

    Option

    Description

    Restrict each user to a single Tekla EPM session

    When selected, Tekla EPM users can only have one Tekla EPM session open at the same time.

    When cleared, Tekla EPM users can have multiple Tekla EPM sessions open at the same time.

    Tekla EPM idle session timeout

    Allows you to define the number of minutes that a Tekla EPM user can remain inactive before the user's session times out and the user is logged out.

    Type the number of minutes in the Tekla EPM idle session timeout field.

    If you do not want sessions to time out, type 0 in the Tekla EPM idle session timeout field.

    True-Shape Dimension Add-On

    The symbol that is displayed after dimensions if a plate item has a CNC file attached to it and the actual shape of the item in the CNC file is not a rectangle.

    For example, if a plate is triangular, Tekla EPM will know the true shape, although it cannot be shown in the item dimensions.

    You can replace the § symbol with [SQM] to display the area of non-rectangular plates in square feet or square meters.

    Allow list of changes to be cleared

    When selected, allows administrators and other users with the correct user permissions to clear the list of changes in a particular Tekla EPM module.

    When cleared, the list of changes cannot be cleared in any module, even by administrators or users that have the correct permissions.

    _fs_rl_user account enabled

    When selected, the built-in user login is enabled, so that the Tekla EPM Remote Server can connect to the Tekla EPM database without the administrator adding the username and password in the monitor settings.

    When cleared, the built-in user login is disabled, so the Tekla EPM Remote Server cannot connect to the Tekla EPM database without the administrator adding the username and password in the monitor settings.

    _fs_backup_user account enabled

    When selected, the built-in username and password are enabled, so that Tekla EPM can perform scheduled backups from the server computer without a username and password.

    When cleared, Tekla EPM cannot perform scheduled backups from the server computer without a username and a password.

    Enable extension directory

    When selected, users can use their own extensions with Tekla EPM. User-defined extensions need to be saved in the Extension default folder that is defined in the Default Directories dialog box.

    When cleared, users cannot use their own extensions with Tekla EPM. Also, the Extension option is not available in the Default Directories dialog box.

  6. On the Database Backup/Restore tab, define how the Tekla EPM database can be restored and how often users should get reminders to create backup copies of the database.

    Option

    Description

    Allow database restore from any workstation

    When selected, allows administrators to restore the Tekla EPM database using any computer.

    When cleared, the Tekla EPM database can only be restored on the server computer.

    For more information, see Restore the Tekla EPM database.

    Show background message if backup has not been run in 'x' days (0 for no message)

    The number of days after the previous database backup when Tekla EPM should remind users with a background message about backing up the Tekla EPM database.

    You can type a different number of days for users with administrative rights and for regular Tekla EPM users. If you do not want to give a reminder message, type 0.

    See an example of a background message below.

    For instructions on how to back up the Tekla EPM database, see Save a backup copy of the Tekla EPM database.

    Show popup message if backup has not been run in 'x' days (0 for no message)

    The number of days after the previous database backup when Tekla EPM should remind users with a pop-up message about backing up the Tekla EPM database.

    You can type a different number of days for users with administrative rights and for regular Tekla EPM users. If you do not want to give a reminder message, type 0.

    See an example of a pop-up message below.

    For instructions on how to back up the Tekla EPM database, see Save a backup copy of the Tekla EPM database.

  7. On the Password Policy tab, define the minimum length for Tekla EPM passwords and select the check boxes for the characters that all Tekla EPM passwords need to contain.

    If no password policy is defined, any passwords can be used. Note that Tekla EPM passwords are always case-sensitive.

  8. Click Save to save the settings.
