We have below requirement
In an assembly the check is performed on each item revision
- IF CAD model exists then JT file should be exist
- JT should have a Named reference
- JT file timestamp should be later than CAD model timestamp
If the conditions are NOT met we should trigger the dispatcher(ETS) request for JT file creation.
The requirement can be met with an ITK utility and cron-job . However I am exploring the possibility of OOTB methods.
Please let me know if you have any suggestions.

Thank you for the answer. Yes even I thought so but
Our requirement is not restricted to workflows. We have downstream systems and thirdparty applications which requires JT file.
Hence we are using ITK utility to make periodic inspections, however with ever growing data and geography we are facing issues with cron-jobs.
Could you use a query with EPM-set-condition? The query would check if the item rev has a UGMASTER dataset, a JT dataset, and that the JT dataset has a named reference that isn't null. Or EPM-check-target-attachments to check for the UGMASTER and JT datasets, and the query only to check the named reference. I don't know if there would be a difference between the two on the front end.
The date comparison would be trickier-- I haven't done enough with the query builder to know if it has a good way to do that, and I've had problems with date type properties in the past.
