The drag and drop interface is really useful for visualizing your workflows but you can't do everything without writing some code. In Part 2, we are tasked with modifying the OOTB Promotion Request Approval Process workflow to require approvals based on the file types attached to the Promotion Request.
Windchill Admins and Customizers,
It is finally your turn to learn how to work with Windchill Workflows! This series will shed light on the mysterious ways that workflows work and how you can manipulate them to do just about anything you want with the Windchill API and a little Java grease. I know trying to learn this stuff has always been a big pain to many people but don't worry! I will make it so easy that you will be impressing your boss in no time!
In Part 1, we will go over the basics of what a workflow is and do some high level manipulation via the Workflow Administration GUI. You don't need to know how to write code....yet...
Hi Blog Watchers!
I have been working really hard to get up to speed with the new .NET Core. I managed to convert my old ASP.NET only version of Windchill Quick View to .NET Core with MVC views. It's nice to be at the front lines of a soon-to-be-released framework. I had to make some CSS changes to entice me into sticking with it. Doesn't that color scheme look familiar?
Now that I seem to be getting the hang of this new framework, I will be creating tutorials on how I made parts of this happen based on how I understand it. Also, in case you have been keeping an eye on all the other Windchill related things and such that I have been doing, this is where they all start to come together. Exciting things on the horizon!
Keep checking back for more updates soon.
Windchill Quick View is an external viewer meant to gives non Windchill users access to Windchill content.
This is a new and active project that I am working on so please keep checking the main Windchill Quick View page for updates.
Export Released for Windchill has been released!
If you don't know what that is, it is a program designed to quickly export released PDF drawings from a Windchill system. I will be working on adding more features in the near future but please let me know how it works for you (if it does).
Check it out: Export Released
Due to the nature of the Windchill Business Analytics program I have been working on, I have decided it is best to have a programming journal showing the code, process, and progress.
My hope is that this will help some of you out there learn from what I have learned and apply it to your own projects in a more efficient way.
Keeping checking HERE for all updates.
I will first work on getting it up to the point where it is now and then keep it up to date as new progress is made.
Hello everyone! After a long pause in posting, I have decided to tease a new project I am working on called Windchill Business Analytics.
My custom Windchill Document Worker is now available on my GitHub. Feel free to try it out and start enjoying those PDFs! Download link below.
After a busy couple weeks of writing, testing, and more testing, my Windchill Document Worker is finally ready to be installed on a customer's system! It is more of a "free beta test" if you will. I am eager to see the results.
A new project I am currently working on is a way to export all files from the Windchill filevault. This could be used to recover files from a database and vault backup without having to restore Windchill to an earlier point in time.
A working prototype has been made that can currently export a test system with 5,700 Documents in under 13 min without the subfolder structure. Adding the subfolder structure significantly adds time to the export. I am working on a way to reduce this time by optimizing the code. The import function is currently being investigated.
