Is there an Action handler that can directly work on a dataset instead of an Item Revision. I know of TSTK-CreateTranslationRequest, but it works only on Item Revision . I need one to work directly on dataset(PPT) to convert it into pdf.
Don't your PPTs reside under a revision? Our CAD drawing datasets reside under a revision, and its the revision that is submitted to a workflow in order to create the pdf. It never occured to me to want to just submit the drawing dataset to create the pdf, although it makes sense.
Remember though, Dispatcher does several tasks. It performs a translation and the result is a PDF file. Its other task is to then create a PDF dataset and upload the PDF file back to Teamcenter and create a relation to the revision. If you didnt submit a revision - what would Dispatcher do with the PDF?
