Workbench configuration

Facilities administrators can change the unit measure for the floor plan, maximum number of search results returned, map icons, colors, and labels. In the navigation pane, Facilities > Workbench Configuration, contains the configuration settings divided into sections.

Map Properties

Map properties determine what users can see on the floor plan. The settings are self-explanatory and rarely edited. For a full description of each property, see System properties installed with Facilities Visualization Workbench.

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.

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 is 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.
  • If the geoJSON property is a "point" type and its name matches the parsing name field, the icons are added to the map.
  • 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 the Micello color palette

Map Labels

Specify which space types have labels shown by default on the interactive map. The settings section of the map 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.

Map Tasks

Specify which roles can see task pins on the workbench.
  • For each facilities map task, show task must be equal to true for its pin to be visible on the map by default.

Map Menu Items

Specify which catalog items are displayed in the pop-up menu on the workbench.
Note: You can display catalog items from any catalog (Facilities, IT, HR, and others).
  • To view catalog items from Workbench, right-click on a space and the catalog items display. Or, click a space and the catalog items display under Related Links.
  • For each facility map menu item, select the Roles for which this catalog item is visible. No defined roles means that the catalog item is available to all users.
  • For each facility map menu item, select the Order in which this entry appears.
  • For each facility map menu item, select the Campuses for which this catalog item is visible. No defined campuses means that the catalog item is available on all campuses.
