Providing Altium's own content, is the cloud-based Altium Content Vault. This vault houses all data under the following top-level folders:
Board Templates– offering board templates, managed sheets, and board connector components.
Unified Components– offering vendor-specific families of components, as well as generic components including capacitors and resistors.
The option to automatically connect to the Altium Content Vault is enabled by default. But if you have disabled this, connection can be performed from the Data Management - Servers page of the Preferences dialog. Provided you have a licensed instance of Altium Designer and valid Altium Subscription, a connection to the vault will be made instantly. This direct connection enables you to access and place content from the Altium Content Vault directly into your designs, through the Explorer panel.
A powerful vault-searching facility is also available to users of the Altium Content Vault. This facility provides grouping, sorting, and column-based filtering, to narrow-down results from a vault that contains an ever-expanding level of content.
