You can modify the catalog definition settings of the Applications & components catalog using catalog definition files, and set up a group structure to suit the needs of your company. Always check the settings and the group structure when upgrading to a new Tekla Structures version.
Catalog definition files ( ComponentCatalog.xml ) can be located in folders pointed by XS_SYSTEM , XS_FIRM , XS_PROJECT , and in the model folder. If there are several catalog definition files, Tekla Structures combines the information in the files. For more information on the folder search order, see Folder search order.
When you create a group structure for the Applications & components catalog, define the highest level structure in a catalog definition file that is located in a folder pointed by XS_SYSTEM. To hide unnecessary parts of the group structure and catalog content from certain roles, edit the catalog definition files of these roles.
