Is there any chance to bring the MPM Link contents to Navigate app.
Have anyone tried?
Yes. we have done some prototyping. It should be similar to exposing any PDMLink content. What is your specific use case?
We have created some contents in MPM Link. But as far as content delivery still we are making PDF and delivering to the Technicians.
If I have the possibility of creating a simple User Interface with the contents from MPM Link, it would be great.
Hope this answers your question. Let me know if you need some more details.
By the way we installed Thingworx Navigate in our own server. Let me know if you need some system details.
We have done the prototyping to make work instructions available in the app. User should able to view the animation as well with the help of Creo Widget. I have used the widget over a year back. Lot of issues were resolved since. It should be pretty straight forward.
Can you please share any help files, widgets or any other information's regarding this.
Thanks for your reply.
The widget you need is CREO View extension widget and you should be getting it with Navigate if I remember correctly. As I said the version I used was more than one year and it had lot of bugs. Those were resolved in later releases. Other than it is matter of using REST services from Windchill. We used Swagger to expose the JAVA method as web service.
Thanks Varathan for your reply.
We have navigate (Package Version 1.5.0) installed in our own server.
If you have some step by step guide, can you please share with me.
I don't have any document. I put together something in ad hoc for demo. It is like publishing any other service in Windchill and consuming in your mashups. Building Mashups is up to your requirements / imagination.
You should able to use Industrial Connectors. You can use WindchillSwaggerConnector or ODataConnector. I am not sure how much work is done on MPMLink side to take advantage of ODataConnector yet. With WindchillSwaggerConnector you should able to connect to end points in Windchill. There are Windchill documentation available to expose service as end point using Swagger (check help section). Follow that to expose your required service with wrapper which can annotate for Swagger. Windchill Connector should able to see that from Thingworx.
Varathan, I never used WindchillSwaggerConnector or ODataConnector as of now. Is there any way I get some help in this.
