Use the following work process to map properties and generate XML for a Smart Construction retrieve. Retrieve mapping is managed using a configuration template and XML files. For more information on managing configuration files for Smart Construction, see Manage Template Files for Smart Construction.

You must configure a vault for files attached to the configuration document objects in SmartPlant Foundation. For more information, see Configure a vault for files attached to configuration documents.

Map properties in the mapping workbook

  1. Open the SPCRetrieveMappings.xlsm file. For more information on managing configuration files for Smart Construction, see Manage Template Files for Smart Construction.

  2. Edit the SPCRetrieveMappings.xlsm file.

  3. Save your changes in the workbook file.

Generate XML and retrieve documents

  1. Open the Main tab of the workbook.

  2. Click Generate Retrieve Mapping to generate the XML map file to be used during retrieve.

  3. Verify that the XML file was generated to the location you specified when you checked out the files.

    If generating the retrieve mapping data for the first time, browse to the Templates\Retrieve Mappings folder in the installation location. For example, browse to [Drive]:\Program Files (x86)\SmartConstruction\2018\Templates\Retrieve Mappings to find the generated XML file.

  4. Check in and sign off the workbook. For more information on managing configuration files for Smart Construction, see Manage Template Files for Smart Construction.

    If generating retrieve mappings for your project for the first time, attach the SPCRetrieveMappings.xlsm workbook and XML file to the Retrieve Mappings configuration document located in the SmartPlant Foundation Desktop Client. The SmartPlant Foundation Desktop Client stores the document, allowing users with the proper permissions to check the document out and in with revisions. For more information, see Attach the SPCRetrieveMappings.xlsm and XML files to the Retrieve Mappings configuration document.

  5. Retrieve documents into Smart Construction.

For more information on the retrieve process after mapping the properties, see Retrieve process after mapping properties.
