File Control and Teamcenter or Insight

Question  Question

Can I use File Control if I am already running a data management application like Teamcenter or Insight?

Answer  Answer

File Control is designed to index unmanaged local or network folders containing Solid Edge data. This is one area that makes File Control so easy to configure. You simply point it at your existing data and off you go.

Teamcenter and Insight use a managed vault to store all the relevant Solid Edge data. As such it is not possible to use File Control to reference Solid Edge data that is managed by either of these applications.
