We are releatively new to Windchill. I have 3 products, and each product has a team. Some people belong to multiple teams. My issue is that people in one product or team do a search on a partnumber and it shows it does not exist. So they use that number for a new part, then go to check-in and get a warning stating that the filename aready exists. They cant find the part being used anywhere. The I, the admin, does a search and there is the part in another product. I suspect we have some issues with our product/team setup. When they check-in a part it ends up in their Product, but we need visibility across the board. Any advice on how to do this the right way, or can someone point me to some good documentation on how to configure this? Thanks!
It's quite a good chess game (user permissions in Windchill). Membership in a Product / Library context Team is not assignment of permission, but is a necessary part of it.
Best tool: As admin, select a Document and then Manage Security. Note that the result is by state. Repeat for drawings or documents at each state in the lifecycle (or create a test one and use Set State to move it one by thru each state). Search for specific users as needed; determine the actual permission statements (ACLs) via the drill-down.
