Export Organization as template

Export Organization as template

1. Describe your environment: What is your industry? What is your role in your organization? Describe your stakeholders.

We are PLM consultants and we work on many different industries. We set up Windchill environments for our customers, make customizations and perform the daily duties of PLM and CAD admins.


2. What version of Windchill are you currently running?

 

12.0.2.4

3. Describe the problem you are trying to solve. Please include detailed documentation such as screenshots, images or video.

 

An Organization cannot be exported from Windchill as a .zip or a .jar in a similar way as a Product/Library/Project can be exported.


This inability is described in the support article CS335973:

4. What is the use case for your organization?

 

We have customers who have need for multiple Organizations and adding them is a recurring task. At the moment we have to create a new Organization with the General template and then modify it manually after creation to suit the needs of the customer. This takes time and increases the risk of mistakes.

5. What business value would your suggestion represent for your organization?

If we could export an existing, ready made Organization or save it as a template, it would save huge amounts of time when creating new Organizations for our customers. Also it would help us to keep the Organizations consistent and thus make the administration tasks easier in the future.
