AWC 3.4 by-default shows the revision and not Item, it needs two clicks to traverse to Item. Can this behavior be configured to show Item instead of revision in folders.?
So revision directly references the folder and not item.
While RAC shows Item->Item Revision when created in RAC.
However, Item is created in AWC, it shows revision and again it needs couple of clicks to traverse to Item.
Can this be configured ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Yes, it is possible to have AW return Items instead of Item Revisions. Active Workspace will return objects that are indexed, and by default Item Revisions are indexed and Items are not.
If you decide you want searches to return Items instead of Item Revisions, you can do this, but do not index both!
AW indexing is controlled by the business object property, Awp0SearchIsIndexed.
If you want, for example, to return Vendor items, set the constant on the Vendor item to true, but also set the same constant on the Vedor Revision to false.
Thank you for reply.
I tried the changes as suggested. However in Home Folder, I still see the item revision and not item. Also pop-up tells that revision is created. Though it creates Item.
I wish to see Item in Home folder and not revision.
I think I understand. Let me give some background in order to explain why you're seeing this behavior.
Because of the revision-centric design of active workspace, when new documents or parts etc. are created, it automatically pastes a reference to the Revision that was created with the Item into the Home folder. They may still paste a reference to the Item into their Home folder, it just doesn't happen automatically.
Changing the indexing from Revisions to Items will change the search results to return Items instead of Revisions, but it will not change what is auto-pasted into the Home folder, nor will it change what has already been pasted. The creating user will get the Revision in their Home folder automatically, but any searches should return the Item instead of the Revision.
Keep in mind that if you decide to make active workspace display items instead of revisions, you may need to make changes to the style sheets to display the information you seek.
I hope this helps you understand why you're seeing what you're seeing.
