The Naviate Cloud Manager Custom Connection uses Autodesk® Forge Apps and BIM 360® Custom Integrations to interact directly with Autodesk® BIM 360®. Once the Naviate Cloud Manager Forge App has been added to BIM 360®, the Forge App credentials are used to interact with Autodesk® BIM 360® from the Naviate Cloud Manager. This done via the Custom Integration Definition described in the following section. 

Please Note — It is only necessary to create one Forge App per BIM 360® Hub. All users and Naviate Cloud Manager connections connecting to a Hub can share the App created for it.
