Signing into a managed content server from within Altium Designer

Modified by on Jun 11, 2021

Signing into and Connecting to a managed content server (such as Altium 365 workspace) from within Altium Designer

Applicable Versions: 20.1, 20.2

Solution Details

In earlier versions of Altium Designer, the Connections menu was not introduced, and users needed to find different alternatives to connect to an A365 workspace or other managed content server, such as using Custom Connection or clicking the Profile menu to view the list of shared workspaces. The Profile menu is located in the top right of the Altium Designer interface.

 

As of Altium Designer 20.1, there is now a separate menu called the Connections menu next to the Profile menu that allows users to view the complete list of shared and owned workspaces. All you have to do is sign in to Altium Designer with your AltiumLive account, activate your valid Altium Designer license with active subscription and select a workspace to connect to from the Connections menu. 

 


Following industry best practices for security and data integrity, Altium 365 supports TLS (Transport Layer Security) 1.2. As such, to be able to use the most secure protocol to connect to an Altium 365 Workspace from your design software, you must be using Altium Designer 20.1.14 or later, which includes support for TLS 1.2.
