The Site object defines the attributes that represent the characteristics of a site. If the Site object exists on a device, that device is considered a Site Director. Starting at Release 10.0, you can no longer configure a connection to a cloud-based platform with the attributes in the Remote Services Connection tab of the Site object. The tab still appears but its attributes should no longer be defined.


  • In SCT, a Site object may exist without a Site Director. In this case, you can open the edit window and make changes to the custom authorization category; however, you cannot save any changes until you add a Site Director.
  • When you promote or demote a Site Director offline in SCT, the custom categories are rebuilt using their default settings.
  • If you need to change the name of the Site object, make sure you first close all user views. This action ensures that all object references throughout the site reflect the new Site object name.
