I need a customization for an item type, so i create a dynamic link library to achive that with using post action (USER_item_created). I want to get the created item tag and do something on it, but the item tag and item revision tag returns NULL.
Here is the sample code..
extern int ITK_user_main(int argc, char * argv)
extern DLLAPI int CUSTOM_method_register_callbacks()
CUSTOM_register_exit("CUSTOM_method", "USER_item_created", (CUSTOM_EXIT_ftn_t)CUSTOM_method_call);
extern DLLAPI int CUSTOM_method_call(int *decision, va_list args)
tag_t tItem = NULLTAG;
tag_t tItemRev = NULLTAG;
char * cItemID = va_arg(args, char *);
char * cItemRev = va_arg(args, char *);
printf("Item ID: %s\n", cItemID); // Item ID gets correctly
printf("Item Revision : %s\n", cItemRev); // Item Revision gets correctly
ITEM_find_item(cItemID, &tItem); // Item Tag is NULL ?
ITEM_find_revision(cItemID, cItemRev, &tItemRev); // Item Revision Tag is NULL ?
if (tItem != NULLTAG)
*decision = ONLY_CURRENT_CUSTOMIZATION;
*decision = NO_CUSTOMIZATION;
Do you want to just add a post action on item creation? or is there any special requirement which can be fulfilled by user exits?
can you explain the requirement?
I will create some dataset after creating new item revision (data will come other system) and some changes on item revision relations. I research doing all that on post action, but it requires custom codes on BMIDE. So I want to try USER libs. According to the documentation it sould be possible.
In documentation it says:
USER_EXITS_API int USER_item_created ( const char * item_id, const char * revision_id )
This USER EXIT ITK provides a hook point for customers to plug the customization codes into the item creation. It is called at the end of successful item creation.
item_id (I) Id assigned to newly created item
revision_id (I) Revision id assigned to the newly created item revision
