Model Add-In Management

Model Add-Ins are managed according to the security groups they are assigned to. Each Add-In defaults to 'not loaded' by anyone until it is assigned to a particular security group and either enabled for all users of that group or made optional, which means that each member of the group will need to explicitly enable that Add-In.

Access

Ribbon

Specialize > Add-Ins > Manage Addin

Available Add-Ins

The 'Manage Add-Ins' dialog lists the Add-Ins that are currently enabled for your model, and provides information on each one as explained in this table.

Groups

For projects in which security is enabled, you can select the list of security groups that will be able to access each Add-In.

Only users with 'Configure Model Add-Ins' permission can change this column.

Status

This column allows you to select the behavior of each Add-In for users within included security groups.

  • Disabled means that the Add-In can not be used by any users
  • Enabled means that the Add-In is loaded and run for all users in the selected security groups
  • Optional means that each user can choose to enable the Add-In themselves; by default any Add-Ins will be disabled until users enable them

Only users with 'Configure Model Add-Ins' permission can change this column.

Load on Startup

This column allows each user to specify that they want to use any optional Add-Ins that are available to their group.

If users are not part of a listed group, or the status is not optional, this has no effect.
