Connection Sites

At times, there is a need to associate a connection to more than one site. When you select a site within General information, you are associating to just one site. With the Sites ribbon group, you can select multiple sites within different levels of where the connection exists. This allows components to be assigned to the connection at any of the sites.

Connection Path Basics

Adding a Site

1.     Click the Facilities menu.

2.     In the Navigation pane, click Connections.

3.     Depending on the amount of records you have within your database, the list may not immediately populate. To populate the list, perform one of the following actions:

·         Within the search box, type the connection group name or portion of the name and then click the magnifying glass

·         Click the Show All button.

4.   The Connection Group list displays. Double-click the connection name.

5.   The Connection window opens. Within the Show ribbon group, click the Sites button. The window displays two panes of information; the top pane displays the sites associated with the connection. The lower pane displays a list of all the sites within your database, the following read-only information is available for each site: 

·         Site Name – displays the name of the site, this is the lowest level of the site tree.

·         Site Path – displays the complete path to the site. Each level is separated by a >.

·         Site Level – displays the site level name or number

·         Site Code – displays the three-digit alphanumeric site code.

6.   To add a site to the connection, find the site within the list, and double-click the record, the site name now displays within the upper pane.

! Be aware that sites do not inherit the associations of their parents. You must associate each level to the connection. For example, if you associate a parent and want all the children associated you must associate all children site as well.

7.   Within the Actions ribbon group, click Save (to save and stay) to continue working with the connection, or click Save & Close (to save and exit) to return to the Connection Group list.
