Create Session Manager Database
This section outlines how to create Session Manager databases on the Enterprise and on the field machines. Engine Mobile uses the Session Manager database to transfer sessions between the field and the Enterprise. This database is necessary for all implementations except View Only.
An Enterprise user (e.g., Editor) creates a session which is stored in the Process Framework (PX) schema in the SDE database. The Editor can then send the session (or redline session on inspection) to a field user. The field user logs into an Access version of the Session Manager database in the field and retrieves the session from the Enterprise. This process requires a method to send/receive designs. This is covered later in the configuration.
Schneider Electric provides sample Session Manager databases for the Enterprise (SessionManager.mdb) and the field (Field SessionManager.mdb). The steps in this section illustrate how you can leverage the sample data to update your Enterprise to include the Process Framework workflow and create a new field Session Manager database.
