Hello,

 

I am looking for visio stencils and any resources to create HLD and documentations.

Do you know where I can download it ?

Thanks

Hi @Bloopa 

I’ve had a quick check and it doesn’t appear we have Commvault Visio Stencils available, but I’ll ask our Marketing team if we have any resources available that we can provide.

Thanks,

Stuart

@Bloopa I have a few but they are kind of old. Can’t remember where I downloaded them from but probably from Commvault.

Hi Bloopa,

 

If you have access to Partner Advantage, the Visio Stencils can be downloaded from there: Partner Advantage | Technical Enablement | Technical Toolbox (commvault.com)

 

Kind Regards,

Michael

Nice find @MichaelCapon thanks!

Wondering if @MichaelCapon or @Stuart Painter  could make the visio stencils available via maintenance advantage or attach to this thread?

Hi @dude 

Let me check internally on the best way to make these resources available.

Some of the resources available above obviously represent the Advantage in Partner Advantage...

Thanks,

Stuart

Can the next time the stencils get updated please not have such a huge amount of white space around each stencil object.  The current ones look nice and modern, but they are super annoying

Hey @Anthony.Hodges !  I’ll share that feedback internally.  If there’s any reply other than acknowledgement for the next round, I’ll let you know!

Can the visio be available via Commvault Store? Customers have access to that and so I`d be able to use it.

Hey @dude !  I’m reaching out to the team who own the stencils and will add this to the request.

I’m also interested in this. It sounds silly, but that’s actually important, as delivering a good service means delivering good documents. Good documents, means...good graphs...so good stencils :)

Not silly at all!  Working on tracking down the owner.

Hi @Bloopa @dude @Bart @Anthony.Hodges -

@Mike Struening and I have shared this request internally. The Visio stencils are a resource one of our Sales Engineering leads created ad hoc and uploaded. We don’t have any specific plans to update them at the moment, but we’ll see if we can get a project going to do so.  In the meantime, let us know:

  • if you would like access to the existing stencil templates (and you don’t have access to them in Partner Advantage). We may be able to just post them somewhere in the community or provide access to you some other way, that shouldn’t be a big deal. 
  • would it be more helpful to have the icons (with reduced white space border) or the actual Visio stencils?

Thanks for the feedback, good to know these are useful! cc @MichaelCapon 

@JennK I would still like to have the visio stencils for internal documentation. As a customer (I dont have access to download them in the Partner Advantage site)I could download the from MA Advantage if you can make it available there or just upload to the community is fine too.

We also don’t have access to partner advantage, so from MA advantage would be great. (or community)

Thanks @Bart @dude - we’ll figure out a way to get the existing ones available to you, no issues there just a little time to figure out the best way to do so.  

Otherwise, we’ll keep everyone posted if / when there are any updates available to the stencil templates or the icons.

Hi and thanks @JennK ,

"Would it be more helpful to have the icons (with reduced white space border) or the actual Visio stencils?"

I guess you could say both. The stencil placeholders are all, say 100x100 in size, but the image each  inside is less than the size.

This means detailed design diagrams have overlapping icons that are difficult to group select. It also means that all Visio connecting lines get snapped to the whitespace border and not to the icon. The only way to get the lines to connect nicely is to manually override the X & Y coordinates for every line.

I too would like to see MA or CV Store available Visio stencils and images. Just adding my input since I had to go through my VAR and CV Sales Manager to get these.

Thanks, @TomK !  We expressed the interest to the Marketing team, though I have no ETA for anything getting released in a broader fashion.

Hi and I do also think the same. I need to create docs and without proper material we’re just dropping obsolete icons on our docs.

This does not help Commvault to be mentionned, as instead we can use ‘Backup server’ icons.

Some other backup software companies are very keen to make their stencils/icons available for free, or at least for their customers (through MA or Cloud or Store or whatever).. 

Thanks to push the concerned teams so we can help them doing (part of) their job.. :grin:

I agree with you 100%, @Laurent .  I’m going to reply back on that internal thread to (re-)push for something easier to acquire.

@Laurent , I heard back that the stencils are an informal resource, and not maintained.  We have passed the feedback along to our Marketing team, though for now if anyone needs the existing copy, send me a pm and I’ll help out (understanding that they are not official, etc.).
