Hi Madhu - In an Info*Engine context UFID stands for Unique Federation Identifier and and consists of three parts :

   <Local ID>:<Global Universal ID>@<Repository Name>

For example : OR:wt.part.WTPart:1547:518975639-1051290416828-696264-103-4-132-10@SERVER.ptc.com

Where :

1. <Local ID> : The Local ID identifies the object within the local Windchill system.

2. <Global Universal ID> : The Global Universal ID uniquely identifies the server.

3. <SERVER.ptc.com> : The Repository Name is used to identify the system for Federation

If you are dealing with objects coming from a single Windchill system, you can just use the <Local ID> : OR:wt.part.WTPart:1547 uniquely identify a Part within a Windchill system.
