I have created a workflow which attahes the ppt to the item revision which is then reviewed and released. What i am not able to do is convert the Ppt to PDF. I have added a Do task after the Release task with an action handler TCRS-Create-Translation-Request added to its Start. But it isnt working. The ppt gets released as intended but the conversion doesnt work.
I have also tried placing the PDF change handler in the begining when datasets are attached to the Item revision. Can someone help me out on this?
A view questions:
- Do you install the TC Rapid Start environment?
- Do you install and configured the Dispatcher environment?
- Which TC Version we are talking about?
The TCRS-Create-Translation-Request Handler creates a Dispatcher request in the dispatcher queue. Once the msofficetopdf or similar module has been configured the native office files are converted to PDF.
Do not connect two path directions on other than OR-Tasks. You have to connect the reject path to the Do-Task and then back to an additional OR-Task.
Thanks for the answer. Is TCRS like an application that is to be installed on the TC server or is it an client application?How do i install it?
I have installed the Dispatcher Rich Client and added the relevant Access Rules. But when i try to convert PPT to PDF, the function terminates.
Thanks for the suggestion @RandyEllsworth, the change in the services file made it work.
I have just one problem, I initaite the workflow process from the powerpoint through a Teamcenter Add On, so i cant use the TSTK-CreateTranslationRequest handler since it works only on the Item Revision. Is there a way to make the translation work work when I initiate the workflow from Powerpoint?
