Change Management Propagate Properties from PR to CR

Hi All,

In Change Management the synopsis and descriptions are propagated. Relations like ProblemItems are also propagated based on the preference CM_ProblemReportRevision_Relations_To_Propagate.

 

Now I want to propagate the following:

  • ChangeSpecialist
  • Analyst
  • Some Custom Properties

Is this handled with Preferences or in BMIDE and how is this handled

 

Kind regards,

Hello Menk,

 

Custom Properties:

In general, Teamcenter Propagation rules (BMIDE --Extensions --Open Propagation Rules Editor) are handy to propagate custom properties from source object to destination object through a relation or reference.

 

Participants: ChangeSpecialist / Analyst

Between PR to CR, you could try setting up a compound relation using CMImplements relation on participant property.

 

If your use cases (like OOTB) allow 2 PRs to 1 CR, then propagation rules, compounding on destination object can be tricky.

Hello Harish,

 

Thank you for your quick reply. 

The problem is that there will be multiple PR's to a CR. There is a preference to propagate relations, but the ChangeSpecialist is a Compound Property.

 

Synopsis (object_name) is propagated from PR to CR, but I don't know how.

 

We are also thinking of some customizing and will get the ChangeSpecialist from a Role in the Assigned Project

 

Kind regards,

When I last investigated, I discovered that Synopsis (object_name) is hardwired.

If you use 11.2.x, you can use propogation rules maybe?

Hi All,

 

I just tried propagation rules to cpoy the ChangeSpecialist1 from a PR to an ECR.

The property for ChangeSpecialist1 is cm0ChangeSpecialist1 (compound untypereference)

 

First you have to set the Property Constant Fnd0PropagationGroup to a Security Group.

In BMIDE the OOTB value is No Group and it is not possible to change this.

 

After this  the Propagation Rule should be defined.

The functionality I want to use is:

  • After deriving an ECR from PR the Participants shoud be propagated.

Should I use the referene CMImplemented by and all the properties with a Propagation Group will be propagated?

 

Then there is the following:

If a propagation rule is used to set a property value, the value can only be changed at the
business object type where it is set, not from the business object where it is inherited. Therefore,
if end users attempt to change values of properties, they can change only those values on source
objects, not those that are inherited by propagation.

 

Did any of you every try this?
