Support of Windchill alias attributes in Arbortext

Support of Windchill alias attributes in Arbortext

Windchill has a type manager that allows creating attributes for specific types.

The Dynamic Document type, which is the default type used for Arbortext-created content supports adding Global, Alias, and Calculated attributes.

However, only Global attributes are seen by Arbortext: any alias attribute added to the Dynamic Document type is not available in Arbortext in the Object Properties window.

My use case would be to add alias attributes to Dynamic Document and view them in the Object Properties window in Arbortext Editor, or use them in bursting rules:

<dmsmetadata>

<twowaymetadatarule attrname="role" bndryelemname="book" metadata="alx.fpc" metadataelemname="book" mode="toxml"/>

</dmsmetadata>

Bottom line, I think it is valuable to be able to access an attribute of an object related to a dynamic document, make it appear as alias attributes of the dynamic document, and view its value in the Object Properties window or use it during bursting to put its value in the xml content.

Thanks,

Alessio
