ArcGIS GeoBIM delivers an innovative, easy-to-use web-based experience for teams to collaborate on building information modeling (BIM) projects and issues in geospatial context. Architecture, engineering, construction (AEC) and operations teams can make better decisions by securely accessing up-to-date project and asset information, including digital models, documentation, issues, and reality capture.
The October 2023 release improves the user authentication experience for connecting to Autodesk Construction Cloud®.
Users of ArcGIS GeoBIM will notice an improved experience for logging into their associated Autodesk accounts. Connecting to an authenticated Autodesk account is required for accessing design and construction information stored in Autodesk Construction Cloud. Prior to this release, some users experienced issues when authenticating their Autodesk accounts with pop-up blocking enabled in their browsers.
Two areas in ArcGIS GeoBIM have been enhanced to simplify Autodesk account authorization:
Projects — After signing into ArcGIS GeoBIM, users are brought to the Projects page. When inspecting project details without an authenticated Autodesk account, users will now see a prompt to “Log in to Autodesk to view projects“. Clicking this prompt directs users to sign in to their Autodesk account and authorize access with ArcGIS GeoBIM. Once completed, users will see links to all associated projects in Autodesk Construction Cloud.
Apps — Users viewing the Apps page while not logged into an authenticated Autodesk account will now see a new prompt window directing them to log in. Users who have unsuccessfully signed into their account via the Autodesk login page will continue to be prompted in order to proceed.
