Accessing an Altium Vault from Altium Designer_AD

Parent page:Working with an Altium Vault

Once you have installed and licensed your Altium Vault, you can access it. This can be done from two places:

The Altium Vault is a separate product from Altium Designer, and is installed and licensed separately. For more information, see Installing the Altium Vault and Altium Vault Licensing, respectively.

This page takes a look at accessing your Altium Vault from within Altium Designer.

Signing-In to Your Altium Vault

To ensure the integrity of your valuable data - stored within your Altium Vault - is maintained, each user is required to sign into that vault with a username and password.

The Altium Vault relies on a number of Microsoft runtime components for successful operation and access, in some situations these may not be present on the target machine. If you receive an error message about a missing library (DLL) when you attempt to sign into an Altium Vault, it indicates that there are missing Microsoft runtime components. To-date, this is only known to occur on Windows Server 2008 R2 x64 Datacenter.

Use this link to download and install these missing components: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/confirmation.aspx?id=29

Signing into an Altium Vault from within Altium Designer can be performed from a variety of places:

  • From the main DXP menu. Use the DXP » Sign in to Altium Vault command. The Connecting to Altium Vault dialog will appear, in which to enter the URL for the vault, and your vault access credentials. Once entered, click the Login button.

If you want to sign in using your Windows login credentials - taking advantage of the vault's support for Windows Authentication - enable the Use Windows Session credentials option.

Checking Sign-In Status

You can check whether you are currently signed in to your Altium Vault from the following places:

  • The main banner of the Altium Designer application window. When signed in, text will appear in the format .
  • The Data Management - Vaults page of the Preferences dialog. When signed in, the status entry for the relevant vault will show . In addition, the button will be Sign out (rather than Sign in).
  • The DXP menu. When signed in, the command will be Sign out from Altium Vault.
  • The Vaults panel. When signed in, the relevant vault will be available from the menu associated with clicking on the name of the vault currently being browsed.

Managing Your Vaults

Management of the connections to Altium Vaults is performed from the Data Management - Vaults page of the Preferences dialog. The main region lists all vaults that you currently have a connection to. Typically, you would access one Altium Vault for your organization, that is locally installed on a server within that organization. You can however connect to other vaults, for example if your organization does have multiple Altium Vaults, or if you still had some legacy vault technology (Personal Vault, Satellite Vault). This can be done by using the Add Vault (legacy) command, on the drop-down menu associated to the Sign in/Sign out button.

While it is possible to have a connection to multiple Altium Vaults, you can only be signed in to one such vault at any given time. This vault is distinguished in the list by appearing in BOLD, and appears at the top of the list.

In addition, you can connect to the Altium Content Vault - Altium's very own cloud-based vault, offering design collateral (including board templates, vendor-specific families of components, as well as generic components including capacitors and resistors).

The Data Management - Vaults page - command central for managing connections to Altium Vaults.
The Data Management - Vaults page - command central for managing connections to Altium Vaults.

The Status column reflects whether the connection to a vault is active and 'live', disabled, or whether there is an issue with the connection.

Use the menu associated to the Properties button to access commands for various aspects of management for the currently selected vault in the list:

  • Edit Connection to Vault (not available for the vault to which you are actively signed-in).
  • Edit Vault Properties
  • Edit Revision Naming Schemes
  • Edit Lifecycle Definitions
  • Edit Operation Permissions.

To clear a vault from the list, select it and click the Disconnect From Vault button. Again, this cannot be used for the vault to which you are actively signed in - you would need to sign out first. Alternatively, to keep a connection, but simply not enable it for use, disable its associated Enabled option.

Automatic Sign-in

Altium Designer can be configured to sign you in to your Altium Vault on start-up. The option to control this - Sign me in when I start Altium Designer - is available on the System - Altium Vault page of the Preferences dialog. The Altium Vault used is taken from the Saved credentials region of the page.

When you sign-in to an Altium Vault, through the Connecting to Altium Vault dialog, you can enable the option Automatically sign in after start. This will enable the option in preferences, and store the current server address and access credentials to the Saved credentials region.

If you want to sign-in to your vault using Windows Authentication and your usual Windows login credentials, enable the option to Use Windows Session credentials.

Configure automatic sign-in, when Altium Designer starts, as part of your preferences.
Configure automatic sign-in, when Altium Designer starts, as part of your preferences.

Signing into an Altium Vault from Different Computers

Support is provided for signing into an Altium Vault, using the same credentials, but from different computers. If you attempt to sign in to a vault that you are already signed into from another computer - either through Altium Designer, or the vault's browser-based interface - a pop-up dialog will alert you to this. You can choose from two options offered in the dialog:

  • Terminate existing session - close the existing session that you have on the other computer, and continue to login to the vault from the current computer.
  • Start new session - login to the vault from the current computer by using an additional connection license, and thereby keep logged into the vault from the other computer as well.

You will only be able to login from the current computer as well, provided you have enough Vault Connector licenses remaining.

Signing-out from your Altium Vault

You can sign out from your Altium Vault by:

Your access to the vault will also be terminated when you exit Altium Designer. In addition, and for an Administrator of your Altium Vault, there is the provision to kill a session from the Users - Sessions page of the vault's browser interface. This can be used to terminate an existing session, and thereby free up a Vault Connector license.

The ability to browse the content of the Altium Content Vaultdirectly through the Explorer panel has been removed by default. Instead, if you attempt to switch to viewing the Altium Content Vault, you will be presented with a dialog. This dialog informs you that the Manufacturer Part Searchpanel should be used, and offers the ability to continue your search for a part by launching this panel. The content from the Altium Content Vaulthas, in reality, been ported behind the scenes in support of Manufacturer Part searching. This is highlighted in the Manufacturer Part Search panelthrough use of the icon. Component entries listed with this icon have schematic symbol and footprint model items defined and referenced, and therefore, can be placed, downloaded or acquired. The Manufacturer Part Searchpanel provides the ability to search for real-world manufactured parts by offering a sophisticated search feature based on categories and parametric filtering. The panel harnesses the manufacturer and supplier data resources of the Altium Parts Providerservice to source the most pertinent and up-to-date component data. A selected manufactured part can be downloaded as a library or acquired into your active managed content server, or its parameters and datasheets can be added to an existing part in the design space. The preferred supplier(s) of that manufactured part may also be selected and added, as Supplier Linkparameters, to an existing design part.

Should you really still need to access the Altium Content Vaultthrough the Explorerpanel (not recommended), you can do so by enabling the option, in the Advanced Settings dialog- accessed by clicking the button, on the System - General pageof the Preferences dialog. You will need to restart Altium Designer for the change to this setting to take effect. The content of this document will then still apply.

Providing Altium's own content, is the cloud-based Altium Content Vault. This vault houses all data under the following top-level folders:

  •  – offering board templates, managed sheets, and board connector components.
  • – offering vendor-specific families of components, as well as generic components including capacitors and resistors.

The option to automatically connect to the Altium Content Vault is enabled by default. But if you have disabled this, connection can be performed from the Data Management - Servers page of the Preferences dialog. Provided you have a licensed instance of Altium Designer and valid Altium Subscription, a connection to the vault will be made instantly. This direct connection enables you to access and place content from the Altium Content Vault directly into your designs, through the Explorer panel.

Note that the Altium Content Vault is hosted on an Amazon S3 Server. Your IT department may need to allow access to this server if proxies are employed. Without access, you will not be able to acquire content from the Altium Content Vault, to your own vault, using the Content Cart.

Note however that this area offers only a subset of the wealth of content available in the vault, and does not, for example, include components that have been created by Altium as a result of customer requests. Connect to and browse the Altium Content Vault to see fully what is on offer.
