Import a .tsep extension to the Applications & components catalog

You can import Tekla Structures .tsep extensions ( Tekla Structures extension package) to the Applications & components cataloguser interface for displaying or modifying information in categorized lists

For example, profile catalog and shape catalog are catalogs.

. First download the extension from Tekla Warehouseservice for collaboration and for storing and sharing Tekla Structures content

In Tekla Warehouse the content items are stored in collections. Tekla Warehouse includes the Tekla Warehouse Service and the Tekla Warehouse web site.

Tekla Warehouse is one of the Tekla online services.

  2. Click> Manage extensions > Extension manager.

    Alternatively, you can open Extension manager from File menu > Extend > Extension manager.

  3. Click the Tekla Warehouse link and log in to Tekla Warehouse with your Trimble Identityuser account to Tekla online services and other Trimble services

    For a Tekla Structures user, Trimble Identity is a single sign-on account which enables the user’s online identity management.

Trimble Identity is needed, for example, for Tekla Campus and Tekla Warehouse, and to log in to Tekla User Assistance.

    .
  4. Search for the .tsep extension and click Download.
  5. Click the downloaded extension in your browser.

  6. Select the Tekla Structures versions to which you want to import the extension.
  7. Click Import.

    The extension is shown in Extension manager in all the Tekla Structures versions that you selected.

    Alternatively, if you want to import the extension to the current Tekla Structures version only, you can do the import in Extension manager after downloading the extension. In Extension manager , click Import and then double-click the .tsep file.

    You can still remove the extension from Extension manager before installing it. Select the extension and click Cancel.

  8. If needed, repeat steps 4 - 7 to import more Tekla Structures extensions.
  9. Restart Tekla Structures to install the imported extension.
  10. Open the Applications & components catalog.

You can uninstall an installed extension in Extension manager. Select the extension and click Remove. The extension is removed when you restart Tekla Structures. Installing and uninstalling an extension creates a log file to \Tekla Structures\<version>\Extensions\TSEP Logs.

System administrators can copy multiple .tsep extension files to a Tekla Structures user's computer to the \Tekla Structures\<version>\Extensions\To be installed folder. The extensions are installed the next time the user restarts Tekla Structures.

Copy .tsep extensions to a new Tekla Structures version

When starting to use a new Tekla Structures version, you can use the Migration Wizard tool to copy the installed .tsep extensions to the new version. You can open Migration Wizardtool that is used when taking into use an updated version of Tekla Structures for copying settings defined by the user in the earlier version

The migration wizard can be used to copy settings included in initialization files.

I get the message: "unable to import the selected extension as the package signature is invalid". How do I solve this?

Hi, Install the .tsep file from Windows Explorer by double-clicking on the file, or copy the .tsep file to the folder: XSDATADIR\Extensions\To be installed. By default, .tsep files are copied to \ProgramData\Tekla Structures\<version>\Extensions\To be installed. After you have done one of these, start Tekla Structures. The .tsep file will be installed without the error message.
