Suppose the user creates an item with an ID of 100001.
Then the system adds "/A" as an Item Revision.
I want the system to create a folder called "OPERATION_PAPERS" under all Item revisions. When first created or created by Revise function, doesn't matter.
It would be better is the folder's name is "100001_OPERATION_PAPERS", I mean having the ItemID as a prefix.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I could think of 2 ways:
- Create folder 'OPERATIONS_PAPERS' using automateandlink as a post action on item create. You could configure this from BMIDE. You may want to consider a custom relation between the item revision and folder (type: folder) as this will allow you to 'propagate' item ID (100..01) from item revision to the folder name.
- If Pseudo folder is okay for you (instead of a folder), then you could set up a custom Relation. Then set up a relation property + preferences on Item Revision to display this custom relation as a pseudo folder.
Folders (not pseudo folder) is handy to organize objects in the workspace but comes with few cons (duplicates etc).
Here is a link to the BMIDE documentation with title: 'Configure the automateAndLink extension'.
This should guide you with steps to create automatic folders.
Here is a link to the BMIDE documentation with title: Create a relation business object
This should guide you in the 2nd approach I mentioned (pseudo folder / custom relation)
I have taken the liberty to point you to TC11.2.3 Teamcenter documentation.
