The Enterprise System allows organizations to install an enterprise server to maintain projects and libraries in a security controlled environment. Access to projects and libraries is controlled using Active Directory users and group membership. Licensed enterprise users may check projects in and out of the enterprise system and access centralized libraries and parts data for which they have the appropriate permissions. Enterprise administrators may implement project versions where appropriate.
The Enterprise System allows the user to create a hierarchy of folders, with each folder containing one or more projects.
If a user has the appropriate permission (and the project is not checked out by another user) they may checkout a project for modification. The user then may modify the project and save the project to their local enterprise repository so they can keep working on the project even if disconnected from the enterprise server.
When a user checks a project back in to the enterprise server the system will create a new project version (depending on the project configuration).
