For all configuration files (file extension ".cfg"), you can find basic information under PARTadmin -> category Configuration files -> dialog area Short description. For some configuration files, in the dialog area Documentation, further information is displayed in order to explain more complex context. These files are found in this chapter. Configuration files to control the ERP integration are normally referenced under Chapter 4, Strategic Parts Management . Configuration files of the CAD interfaces are referenced under Section 2.3, “CAD specific information”.

This chapter is organized as follows:

  • Editing of configuration files in PARTadmin

    Here you can find information on the user interface and on how to perform settings.

  • Editing configuration files on file level

    In exceptional cases editing of configuration files has to be performed on file level.

    Here you can find detailed information on the specific tags.

  • Now all configuration files are following subdivided by their storage path, which is represented by an environment variable.

  • Keys in catalog directory and its subdirectories

    Here you can find keys from files of the catalog directory or its subdirectories. Not all files have the extension ".cfg".

  • Configuration files to control the user interface follow at the end of this chapter.
