Ideate Cloud Connector

The purpose of the Ideate Cloud Connector custom integration is to use the Autodesk API to authenticate the user and to enable Ideate Automation to see and access hub names, project names, and Revit model names for which the user has the appropriate permissions. All access to the models is controlled via Autodesk BIM 360/ ACC. This sample email can be sent to your hub partners to request integration on their end if needed.

NOTE The Autodesk BIM 360 Account Administrator must complete these steps.

  1. Open your company’s BIM 360 Account/Hub.  Go to Account Admin < Settings.

  1. Top Panel Bar > Custom Integrations.

NOTE: If you do not have a Custom Integrations tab you can email [email protected] and request that it be turned on.

  1. Left Panel > Add Custom Integration

  1. Leave “Select Access’ checked for both BIM 360 Account Administration and BIM 360 Document Management.  Click “Next”.

  1. Select “Invite a developer”.  Type [email protected] in email field.  Click “Send”.

  1. After clicking “send”, the Account Admin > Settings > Custom Integration screen will look like this.

  1. After Ideate Software has approved the custom integration, the Account Admin > Settings > Custom Integration screen changes.  Click “Approve”.

  1. Congratulations, the Ideate Cloud Connector is now configured!
