This mode is enabled by selecting the "Background Publish" option in the CommonUI dialog box. After clicking OK, the Adapter communicates with SmartPlant Foundation via the BatchPublish parameter as to whether this mode is supported by Intergraph Smart Instrumentation.
This mode triggers SmartPlant Foundation to launch a different process for the publishing to take place. This process will maintain a second connection to the datapile.
This mode is especially useful in cases of a large publish operation where a user does not want to wait until the whole process ends.
