Hi.

 

We have a lot of .tif drawings that we will be adding to TC.

 

Is it possible to set the workflow to multiple files to released in one go?

 

Kind regards

 

Darren.

Good afternoon, try using handlers:

 

EPM-create-status

EPM-set-status
https://docs.plm.automation.siemens.com/tdoc/tc/11.2.3/help#uid:xid1256819:index_workflow_designer:i...

 

For the EPM-set-status handler, notice the -status_not_shared argument

Addition:
You can take the TCM Release Process as an example, add the -status_not_shared argument to the EPM-set-status handler.

Hi @ArthurRM 

 

Looks complicated.

Do you know if there is a walkthrough guide anywhere?

 

I would do it at a folder at a time.  These folders will have up to 2,500 til files.

 

Kind regards

Re: Releasing Files

What method are you using to import the image files?   Using PLMXML import, you could attach the status as part of the import...

Good afternoon, Darren, I created a process for you, you can run it on a folder, all the objects inside the folder will be released.
You can change the status name in your text editor:

Import the process into Workflow Designer:

You can also use the release_man utility, but it assigns one status instance to all objects:
