No Forms available.

[ Edited ]

Good evening,

A Teamcenter installation does not allow me to create 'Forms' , though they being offered in the File/New menu. Any hint about how the Forms Object could have been disabled? Maybe from BMIDE?

 

Thank you.

This looks like a custom item type. What error message do you get ? Did you check sylog/RAC log for errors ?

Hello xplm2005,

 

No errors at all, the Business Object Type dialog opens offering all the available BOs, but not 'Form' entry on the list.

 

Could it have been disabled from BMIDE? It is such a common used object that it is somehow extrange that it is not available. :/

 

I cannot find anything wrong in the logs.

 

Thank you.

Oh Ok. Please check if you can find it in "File->New->Other..." menu (Ctrl + H with keyboard).
If it's available there, that means it is added in DM correctly, but I have no idea how to get it in the list in Create New Item dialog.

Re: No Forms Item Type

It is also possible to disable item creation through BMIDE. If the "Is Abstract?" option is selected while creating custom object, its instance cannot be created in client.

Re: No Forms Item Type

No, it is not present in the 'others'. All extensions are available though.

I checked if it was abstract previously, and it is not. Maybe a constant has been altered?

 

Re: No Forms Item Type

Ok now I understand that it's "Form". Your Title confused me first of all as it says 'Item type'.

 

I don't have a proper explanation for this, but if you relate the same case to "Dataset", you cannot create any object of type "Dataset". But you can create it's subtypes (PDF, UGMASTER, etc.)

 

I would wait for someone else to give the technical reason why it is not possible to create "Form" though it is not set as an Abstract class.

Re: No Forms Item Type

Hi It could be a problem of client cache for the types. Kindly regenrate the client cache and try again. generate_client_meta_cache -u -p -g generate types
