Parameter file "SpecialCategories"


The →characteristic categories that are available in infra CONVERT are defined in the parameter file “SpecialCategories.json”. More specifically: these definitions are loaded when a new →project is created and saved in the project file. This means that it is only in the project possible to later change the category definitions for a project.

Important Each category definition has parameters that cannot be changed. If a parameter is missing or faulty, then the category is no longer available.

If you need additional categories, please let us know so we can expand the parameter file accordingly. Please only modify the file if you want to assign different values to parameters that are identified accordingly in the following description. Remember to make a backup copy.

During installation, the parameter file “SpecialCategories.json” is saved at the following location:

%ProgramData%\ELIAS GmbH\infra-convert\JsonData\SpecialCategories.json

If another parameter file is to be loaded when starting the program, this can be specified in the startup parameter file (see Configuration and Import > Parameterdatei für Merkalkategorien).
