Prevent translation workflow from processing multi level

Valued Contributor

Hi,

 

I've create a workflow which only contains one task with the TCRS-Create-Translation-Request handlers to generate PDF, DXF and STP translated files for Solid Edge datasets.

When executed the workflow, it creates translations requests for all datasets in the structure.

The workflow target is a item revision which contains a Solid Edge assembly and a draf dataset.

 

What causes this behavour and is it prossible to prevent this?

I only want to process one level.

IMHO this is not possible with this TCRS Handler. It is only possible with the TCPB Add-On and the use of the TCPB-AH-CreateDispatcherRequest Handler.

Thanks for your reply Michael.
What's is this TCPB Add-on?
Can't find any info using Google.

TCPB: Teamcenter Power Box is an additional Siemens package for customers in DACH region. It consists of Workflow Handlers, command line tools, various datamodel tools and a RAC PlugIn. IMHO a must for every TC env.

Most of the TCRS-workflow handler have its seeds in old TCPB-workflow handler.

So this is not available in other regions?

And I assume this requires an additional license from Siemens?

IMHO it is available in DACH Region only. But you may ask you Siemens sales if it is available in your region.

Yes, it is an additional license seat for each TC author license.

Thanks Michael, will ask.

 

Does anyone know of any other ways of generating specific dispatcher requests in workflows?

Okey, came across handler "TSTK-CreateTranslationRequest", which enables you to only create request(s) for a specific dataset type and does not process datasets from other item revisions in the underlying structure.

 

Another (in my opinion) nice side effect is that the translation requests are not genereted in the name of the user "dcproxy" but in name of the user initiating the workflow task.
