Burst Configuration - default WC attribute values

I am trying to understand burst configurations and more specifically, how to set Windchill attributes in a burst configuration file for doctypes.

 

For example, if I have the following in my burst config file

<typerule elementname="graphic"
targettype="wt.epm.EPMDocument|"/>

 

In Windchill, we have a defined soft type of com.aa.softtype. 

 

What tag in the burst confg file should I modify with a default value so when the objects are burst into Windchill, the value is populated in the Windchill GUI?

Re: Burst Configuration - default WC attribute values

The information about setting the Object type for new objects is in the Help Center topic called "Configuring Object Types".

 

For your example, if com.aa.softtype is a subtype of Dynamic Document, then you would want a rule in the <dmsobjtype> section like this:

<typerule sourcetype="graphic"
targettype="wt.epm.EPMDocument|com.aaa.DynamicDocument|com.aaa.softtype"/>

Note that all Arbortext documents must be Dynamic Document or a subtype of DYnamic Document.  They cannot be a subtype of wt.epm.EPMDocument.

 

The information about setting attribute values in Windchill is in the Help Center topic called "Assigning PTC Server Properties".
