1. Log On

The Logon options are enabled for a CIMPLICITY project and a computer project, if the user was not logged in when the Workbench started up.

Logon opens a Change Management Logon dialog box to log a CIMPLICITY project or computer project onto the Change Management server.

Tip: If a logged in CIMPLICITY project user name and password are the same as an authorized Change Management user name and password, you can avoid logging in twice , if you select to.

Specifications in a Change Management Logon dialog box are as follows.


User name




Change Password







User name

Authorized Change Management user.

Note: The privileges that a user has are set by the Proficy Change Management server administrator.

Therefore, it is possible for a PCM server user to be able to log into the PCM server, but not be able to modify or check in files even if the user has administrative permissions on the Proficy CIMPLICITY server.

Important: CIMPLICITY User names can be 32 characters, however, Change Management limits user names to 20 characters. If the same user names will be used for CIMPLICITY and Change Management, limit the length to 20 characters.

Windows authentication.

Note: The feature used to authenticate the Domain log on  is based on how the Change Manager access control was set up.

Consult Change Management documentation for details about setting up access control.




The Change Management server is identified for the project or computer as follows.


Server entered on the Change Management tab in the Project Properties dialog box.


Server entered in the Computer Properties dialog box.

Note: If the computer project requires a log on in order to make changes and a user tries to open a CIMPLICITY application e.g. the Options dialog box, a Change Management Logon dialog box will open for the user to log onto the PCM server. Even though the user is then logged onto the PCM Server, the Workbench status bar will continue to report that the user is not logged on. The Workbench status bar only reports a log on when the user logs on by right-clicking an icon in the Workbench and selecting Log On in the Popup menu.
