This is the second post in a blog series describing the updates to the ASCENT learning guides for Autodesk Vault 2024. As mentioned in the first blog, these updates are a response to requests from end users and instructors for focused learning guides for each user type, Vault software, and database setup  

 If you would like to view the other blogs in the series, you can access them via the links below: 

The blog provides an overview of the Autodesk® Vault Basic 2024 Administrator Essentials learning guide, which focuses on the administration-related functionality in Vault Basic. The guide also covers some of the end-user tasks that will be useful for new administrator users to get started with Vault.   

Note: If you are looking for end user-focused content, please use the Autodesk® Vault 2024 for Inventor® and AutoCAD® Users learning guide.  

Below is an overview of the Autodesk® Vault Basic 2024 Administrator Essentials learning guide: 

Description 

This learning guide introduces Autodesk Vault Basic 2024 to CAD administrators. Autodesk Vault Basic is the foundation module of the data management solution from Autodesk, enabling users to consolidate and organize all product information securely for easy reference, sharing, and reuse purposes. 

Audience 

This guide is intended for CAD administrators and focuses on administrative tasks. Hands-on practices are included to reinforce how to administer Autodesk Vault Basic. 

Database Set Up 

Before you start any practice, you need to perform the basic setup of the database. There are two methods of setting up the database so that you can choose the method that works for your environment: 

Method A: Create a Vault and Add a User (works alongside other vaults and keeps current vault intact) 

Method B: Restore the Database (overwrites current datasets and file stores in your current vault, therefore, be sure to back up any necessary vaults that you might require later). Using the restore method eliminates the need to set up the user required for the hand-on practices.

Contents 

First, you are introduced to the Autodesk Vault features in Chapter 1. Then, instructions on some of the end-user tasks required to get started with Vault are provided in Chapter 2. This will help you become familiar with some of the essential functionality required to support your users. Chapters 3, 4, and 5 cover the administration tasks that you will perform when setting up and managing Vault Basic.  

The chapters included in this guide are listed below: 

Chapter 1: Introduction to Autodesk Vault 

Chapter 2: Basic Vault Tasks 

Chapter 3: Autodesk Autoloader 

Chapter 4: Organizing and Populating a Vault 

Chapter 5: Managing Vault 

I hope this information is helpful for you! Please let us know if you require further information.
