|Map - Log in dialog box for Industry Models|
Additionally we have two databases - a production one and a test one. Users need to be able to connect to either of them. Here is how we do it without handing over the passwords:
Map - username and connection details for the login dialog box (command: _mapdbconnect) are stored locally. All details are saved in an XML file. Connection details comprises Oracle database name, mapsys/mapmain user name and password (encrypted).
We have created two xml files - one with the details required to connect to the production database, the other one with the details required to connect to the test database.
There are two desktop shortcuts to fire up Map. A script copies the machting xml file from the network drive to the local folder before Map gets started:
copy SYSTEM.config.mapsys.proddb "C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\AutoCAD Map 3D 2013\R19.0\deu\Settings\SYSTEM.config"
cd /D "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD Map 3D 2013\UserDataCache\"
start "" "C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD Map 3D 2013\acad.exe" /product ACAD /language "de-DE"
The Map user finds all the details for the Login-dialog box filled in already - all he or she needs to do is to enter the personal password. For the user the process is transparent.
