What is DoorKeeper?

DoorKeeper™ is an AddIn or App that adds functionality to Bentley Systems MicroStation® CONNECT. It's a tool for architects, designers and planners.

Here's a PowerPoint introduction to DoorKeeper .

Tag Doors

DoorKeeper simplifies the task of tagging a MicroStation DGN cell element. By tagging, we mean attaching DoorKeeper data to a MicroStation DGN cell. Once tagged, your cell becomes an Door. An Door has both visible geometry and DoorKeeper data.


Design an door cell in your corporate style, and add SmartText where you want DoorKeeper data to be substituted. DoorKeeper automatically connects your data to the cell's text fields. DoorKeeper labels Doors by updating text fields in your door cell.


DoorKeeper harvests your data and presents it in a FlexiTable worksheet. You can sort and filter the worksheet, export it to Excel, and place it as a DGN table in your DGN model.

Reports and Tables

You can use MicroStation's built-in Report and Table tools with your DoorKeeper data.

Search for Doors

You can search for Doors using DoorKeeper's Search tool. The search tool let's you find Doors tagged with matching data.

Categorise Doors

You can categorise Doors by adding them to a MicroStation Named Group. There is a number of MicroStation tools that work with Named Groups.
