Summary tab XMLRenderingStylesheet and required property when create Item

Legend

Good Afternoon, maybe who knows, how:

 

1.  Display Where Used, Structure and other like this:

 

Summary tabs.png

Where can I find information about this in the documentation?

 

By default, Summary tab usually looks like this:

2. How to change the logic which property is required when creating an item or custom item? When I create an item, I see the required Name property and optional ID, how can I make it to have the required ID and not necessarily the Name? As far as I know, this should change in BMIDE in the Operation Descriptor, but I can't change this logic:

 

Default:

In BMIDE:

 

BMIDE1.png

The Edit button does not allow access to change Required constant:

Your first requirement means that you have to modify the "Summary" stylesheet as specified in the Client Customization guide. Here is a link to the docs...
https://docs.plm.automation.siemens.com/tdoc/tc/11.2.3/help/#uid:id1109052

The second requirement is a little tougher. The Item ID and Revision ID do not show up as mandatory because they have number counters associated to them. You really can't live without the number counters which means these fields will never show an asterisk.

RandyEllsworth thanks for your answer. 

 

About "Summary" stylesheet:

I can't find in the documentation what specific tags are needed to add to display these tabs.

 

Your answer to the second question is resolved, thank you.

You have to build the tab into the stylesheet and populate the page/section yourself. You can use similar ootb stylesheets as examples. It's work (coding).

I found how to do it. Teamcenter sometimes does not cease to amaze me. Why it could not be written in the documentation? I wasted a lot of time searching, but as always everything was simple.

As it turned out, the element does not use the rendering with the name of the ItemRevSummary, but uses the BaseItemRevSummary rendering, which already has the necessary (OOTB), but commented tabs. I have uncommented some tabs.

Here are a few screenshots, some tabs are pretty handy:

While I was searching, I found information that the "Where Used" tab can cause performance problems, so be careful when using it:
