Allow cascading attribute using export / import from spreadsheet function

Allow cascading attribute using export / import from spreadsheet function

cascading attribute can be used as replacement for attribute having multiple conditional constraint, currently neither is supported by export / import from spreadsheet, which causes huge impact on customer daily work. 

 

This is our TS case Import from Spreadsheet throws error "The value for attribute xxx must be one of the following []"

The same situation happens to attribute using multiple conditional constraints with enumeration list. We would ask to enable export / import from spreadsheet also for this kind of attribute.

Hello Everyone,

Wanted to share CS334077 where this issue is incapsulated. There is a "sort of" workaround detected that you may be interested in, if you're trying to accomplish this for one time activities, rather than for an ongoing usage.

PTC Windchill version 11.2 M020 CPS 03 has a bug when using OOTB spreadsheet tool for loading parts. PTC has provided a slight workaround in an article, the workaround is not helpful and cannot be implemented for us, we need this prioritized and a hotfix as part of the current version of PTC Windchill. 

The Business is unable to perform data loads and relying on IT to perform the data load by using the Windchill Bulk Migrator that is leading to delays and additional costs and efforts in the Project Implementation.

I understand this idea to be able do import and export cascading rules independently from the import from spread sheet functions for WTParts. 

Please correct if I am wrong.
We currently have to define a large number ob cascading attribute rules as part of a 3rd party data base to Windchill migration. 

And according to PTC Article CS305741 there is no way to do the initial load of the rules via a load file! Not even via API.

Creating a large rule set of cascading attributes via the UI is very error-prone.
