Registers a project. Each project must be registered before you can connect to the integrated environment to perform any specific tasks, such as publishing or revising documents. You can register each project only once. To more efficiently distribute design work, you can register multiple projects to a single SmartPlant Foundation plant.
During registration, the software maps the project and all its associated data to a single SmartPlant Foundation URL, which points to one SmartPlant Foundation database, and returns a unique signature for the authoring tool/project combination being registered.
In an integrated environment, the term "project" is synonymous with the top level of the PBS hierarchy.
The SmartPlant > Register command displays a wizard that steps you through the following tasks:
Specifying the node name and virtual folder for the SmartPlant Foundation database.
Selecting the project with which to register.
Providing a description for uniqueness when used in a multi-registration configuration.
