What’s new in Autodesk Vault 2025

Autodesk Vault have released its latest version - Vault 2025, packed with a host of new features and improvements aimed at enhancing security, streamlining processes, and improving user experience. 

One of the key focuses in Vault 2025 is on bolstering security measures. Administrators now have greater control over password policies, with the ability to enforce custom rules such as password length and the inclusion of lowercase and uppercase letters, numbers, and special characters. This enhancement ensures that user accounts are better protected against unauthorised access. 

Another significant update comes in the form of lifecycle email notifications. Users can now configure email alerts based on predefined templates, notifying specific individuals or groups about changes in document status. Whether it's alerting document editors about rejected files or informing checkers of documents awaiting review, this feature ensures that stakeholders stay informed and can act promptly, thereby streamlining collaboration and decision-making processes. 

Purging capabilities have received a substantial overhaul. Administrators can now purge entire folders based on lifecycle purge settings, simplifying the process of removing unrequired files. Additionally, ongoing purge management can be automated by configuring purges to occur upon lifecycle transitions, ensuring that outdated or irrelevant files are removed from the system. 

Vault 2025 also introduces improvements in backup management, allowing backups to be scheduled directly within the Vault interface. This includes support for various backup types such as database, full, and incremental backups, providing users with greater flexibility and control over their data backup processes. 

Among the smaller enhancements are features like searching historical item numbers, criteria-based basic searches, and an upgraded vault basic copy design tool. These refinements contribute to a more efficient and user-friendly experience. 

Furthermore, the Vault Thin Client interface has received updates, allowing companies to customise the interface with their own logo and set the workspace as the default landing page. These customisation options help tailor the user experience to better align with organisational branding. 

For developers leveraging Vault's API, Vault 2025 offers support for both .NET 4.8 and .NET Core 8.0, ensuring compatibility with a wide range of applications. However, it's important to note that any custom add-ins and functionality will need to be migrated to the new version if other apps are linked. 

In conclusion, Autodesk Vault 2025 represents a significant leap forward in data management capabilities, with enhancements spanning security, collaboration, automation, and user experience.
