Workbench configuration

Facilities administrators can change the unit measure for the floor plan, maximum number of search results returned, as well as map icons, colors, and labels.

Map properties

Map properties determine what users can see on the floor plan. These settings are self explanatory and rarely need to be edited.

Table 1. Floor plan properties
Option Selection
Specifies whether we should preserve the sys_class_name of a space when parsing geoJSON files if the space already exists

Yes or No

For example, if a space was changed to be a cube, but parsing rules suggest it is an fm_space, then setting this option ensures the space remains a cube and does not revert back to an fm_space.

The system base area unit for facilities space tables. Set to true to use meters squared, or false to use feet squared Yes or No
Maximum number of spaces per zone to retrieve for the zone edit tab Integer; default is 200
The color to use for highlighting the selected space on the floor plan map Hex values, RGB values, or HTML colors
Maximum number of search results to return per level on spaces tab in workbench Integer; default is 20
Maximum number of requests to return per level on move/facilities requests tab of workbench Integer; default is 50
Maximum number of search results to return per campus on spaces tab in workbench Integer; default is 20
Maximum number of search results to return for other campuses on spaces tab in workbench Integer; default is 20
Maximum number of search results to return when searching for facilities/move requests tabs in workbench Integer; default is 200

Parsing configuration

All the facility feature types must be defined for processing map set files and running transforms. A basic set of space definitions are pre-loaded for your use.

In order to create spaces for a feature type during parsing:
  • Set Create spaces to true
  • Set the sys_class to change the type of space that will be created
  • See Space hierarchy

Icon definition

A basic set of space icons and their definitions are pre-loaded for your use.
  • These icon definitions affect both parsing and runtime configuration.
  • The icons are added to the space during parsing if the geoJSON property is a "point" type and its name matches the parsing name field.
  • Set Active to true for the icons to be shown on the map.
  • Set Show by default to true for the icons to be shown on the initial map load.

Map colors

A basic set of feature types and their associated colors are pre-loaded for your use.
  • Use hex values, RGB values, or HTML colors.
  • Default colors match Micello's color palate

Map labels

Specify which space types should have labels shown by default on the interactive map. The map's settings section lets the user change the currently selected values.
  • For each facilities space type, show label must be equal to true for its label to be visible on the map by default.
