Naming convention for Model Manager\Task Agent generated PDF's (11508020)

Naming convention for Model Manager\Task Agent generated PDF's (11508020)

Currently PDF's that are created\exported directly from MM use the following naming convention:-

PTN-13038-01-A-work-DRAWING_2D-aip_dwg_annotation-pdf

NAME – Version – state – Class - aip_dwg_annotation-pdf

is it possible to configure this the naming convention via XML?

Hi Barry,

I think what you're looking for is in wmconf.xml.

Search for <WebServices>, <MimeTypeMap> and let pay attention to the <DefaultNameFormat> tag. This tag defines the default name format for related files and your PDF. It's defined as

%DocumentObjName%-%DocumentClassName%-%ParentFileBaseName%%FileExtension%.

You may use your own <NameFormat> with your own name components (ex: %Name%, %DB_UNIQUE_ID_STRING%, or whatever other attribute available at evaluation time).

But beware about uniqueness name. Including %DocumentClassName% may differentiate a 2D PDF from a 3D PDF, etc.

Hope this will help you.

Hi Louis,

Thanks for the details - that's great.  I will test later and let you know how it goes!

Thanks

Barry
