There are enhancements and fixes for its Simulation Process Data and Resources Management software.

BETA CAE Systems has released SPDRM v1.8.1, which offers enhancements and fixes for its Simulation Process Data and Resources Management software.


Data Management

From now on, any Additional Attributes that are assigned to a simple file are automatically inherited when it is overwritten.

Script API

It is now possible for authorized users to get the “Last Seen” attribute for a user through the “um.getUserProfileInfo” script function.

Script Actions

Improved error handling when a script action with a wrong function name is executed.

Users Management—Security

The role of the active users is now displayed in a new column in the “Logged In Users” window.

Known Issues Resolved

Data Management

It was not possible to edit an external file (i.e., a file for which SPDRM only stores its path as a link), through a SPDRM client on Windows OS.

Process Management

On Windows OS, when executing an ANSA application node with “-i” option and Value Type “From input slot” in its Application Settings, the Input slot file would not be sent for opening in ANSA. This occurred when the file path contained forward slashes as path separators.

Data Views

An error could occur while trying to access the Pedigree of a Subsystem with Iteration (or any other versioning property) larger than 1.

Data Migration / Archival

During data migration, using the DM Import function, all non-STRING (e.g. FLOAT, ATTACHED_FILE) additional attributes would be stored as STRING in the target environment.

Documentation Updates

Updated Documents

Updated user's guide, Installation Guide, Scripting API guide, and REST API documentation.

Supported Platforms and System Requirements

From this version onward, the server application of SPDRM is available only for Linux 64bit. NOTE: Installation of SPDRM server application on MS Windows is not supported anymore.

The software requires a different license key to the rest of the products of BETA CAE Systems. This license key should be incorporated into the same license file, if such is already installed, and requires beta_lm, the proprietary license manager of BETA CAE Systems.

For details, refer to the System Requirements document.


Customers who are served directly by BETA CAE Systems, or its subsidiaries, may download the new software and documentation from their account on BETA CAE Systems' server. They can access their account through the “sign in” link at the website.

All files required for the installation of this version reside in the folder named: “SPDRM_v1.8.1” and are dated as of December 19, 2022.
