SD124422 - Vault Extensions Snorkeling—First Touch to Vault Extension and Automation Programming

Session Description

Vault data management software isn't just a single program; it's a framework, composed of many pieces like CAD add-in or Vault Explorer (Client) working together. You can customize some of these pieces and not others. This class will discuss the various ways to customize and integrate with Vault, including Vault Data Standard advanced scripting layer and Vault application programming interface. Following samples of standalone applications interacting with Vault, jobs automating repetitive tasks, or event handlers extending workflows, you can get started scripting and coding your own first extensions.

Additional Information
Understand different concepts accessing Vault software’s scripting and programming interface for customizing and automation
Learn how to reuse sample code for your first stand-alone automation/interaction with Vault
Learn how to replace a cumbersome task implementing your first custom job
Discover how to use workflow events to vitalize a code template and solve one of the most frequently asked requirements: check that the current user is really enabled to do what he or she is trying to do
Instructional Demo
This class will fit if your experience includes using a Microsoft PowerShell editor and Visual Studio (C# or VB.Net) as scripting or programming tool. We don't expect you know anything about Vault's application programming interface. Some experience with Vault Data Standard rule scripting is a plus, but not required.
