Thanks for all the great feedback I got from the recent posts about RFA security. I’ve submitted “Family Security Guard” to Autodesk to have it published (for FREE!). I will let you know when it is ready for download here.
The user will be prompted for a password in two situations:
- In the project environment when they attempt to open the Family Types dialog
- When they attempt to open a family file
After the password is successfully entered, the user will not be prompted again for the password during this Revit session. The password can be set in the pwd.txt file in the BoostYourBIM-FamilySecurity.bundle\Contents folder.
NOTE: This app only protects families when this app is installed. There is no protection when someone without this app attempts to modify families. (I know many people would like to protect families all the time, but unfortunately Revit does not support this)
