For those using categories and assignment rules in Vault, you may have found yourself attempting to find a more detailed way of utilizing the assignment rules. You can always utilize the file extension for assigning categories, but what if files with the same extension can exist in different categories? You could always search on another file property, but very often they don’t exist yet and going through the process of assigning them is often more work than assigning the categories.
powerVault is a native PowerShell extension that allows you to talk with Vault via pure PowerShell command-lets.
With powerVault, you get command-lets for dealing with files and items. For instance “Open-VaultConnection” for establishing a connection to Vault, or “Get-VaultFile” for getting/downloading a file, or “Get-VaultItem” for getting an item and many more.
What are Tokens
Autodesk Vault Search is based on “Tokens”. Tokens are individual chunks of a property value that allow the system to locate files based on pieces of information. This type of searching allows for quicker search results and reduces the impact to the system when searching vaults containing thousands of property values.
