Using the windchill attribute PTC_WM_CREATED_BY & PTC_WM_CREATED_ON in a format on a drawing it is changed when the object is revised to the user who revised it. Can this be fixed so the originator of the drawing is captured.
I can vouch that our userbase absolutely hates this aspect. I have been tasked with finding a better than 'manually write it in' workaround for this.
I also created an Idea for this:
We worked around this by creating a relation of Initial_created_by and Initial_created_on in our start parts. These would not update when a part was revised, only when it was saved as.
/* extract the date portion of the windchill timestamp paramsshort_created_on = extract(ptc_wm_created_on,1,10)short_approved_date = extract(ir_approved_date,1,10)short_modified_on = extract(ptc_wm_modified_on,1,10)year = extract(ptc_wm_modified_on,1,4)
/* Set ir_initial_ecn = to ir_ecn from windchill only when rev is 0if ptc_wm_revision == "0"ir_initial_ecn = ir_ecnir_initial_created_by = ptc_wm_created_byir_initial_created_on = short_created_onendif
