Are you using Revit and Vault Professional? Have you upgraded to Vault Professional 2016 and noticed some issues? Make sure you take a look at this tip before you perform your upgrade.
We had a support case regarding a customer’s inability to search Autodesk Vault from within Revit after upgrading to Vault Professional 2016. To confirm the issue, we navigated to the Vault tab > Options. Once there, we noticed on the Searching tab of Vault Options, everything was grayed out.
We attempted a repair on Revit, reinstalling Vault, as well as rebuilding all search indexes, and remove/re-enable Revit Indexing Service without any success.
After a few days of troubleshooting we finally determined the issue. When upgrading Vault to a newer version, you need to perform an additional step. This step is:
Re-index File Properties by opening the Vault ADMS Console > Actions > Re-Index File Properties
When clicking the Calculate button from the Re-Index File Properties dialog, it only read two files will be re-indexed.
Along with performing the additional step above you have to expand the dialog using the chevron icon, then check the box “Force Re-Index”. Once checked and clicking the Calculate button again, the numbers of files to be re-indexed matched the number of files within Vault.
Finally, by clicking the OK button to begin the re-indexing, immediate results were produced within Revit.
