Configure the Windows Explorer plugin

Use the Windows Explorer plugin when you want to view the status of items and folders in relation to a Dimensions CM project, or to update the local work area or the repository with changes.

PRIVILEGES To create or update items in the repository, you need the Update Item Content and the Create Item privileges.

Some operations require access to the Dimensions CM database. In this case, if you are not logged in, a login dialog box opens, which you need to complete.

Note: The Windows Explorer plugin uses client metadata to make comparisons between the work area and the repository. To create or maintain this metadata, the files and folders in the work area that correspond to existing items and directories in the project need to have been created using Dimensions CM item file operations.
