Import neutral file into WGM like Creo config.pro option allow_import_file_extension

Import neutral file into WGM like Creo config.pro option allow_import_file_extension

Trying to manage non-PTC CAD data (specifically Catia and Solidworks), and need to manage/store neutral file types (e.g. .stl, .pdf, and the like) derived from like data in Windchill, but can find no option for WGM to accept other file types. It can be (and is) done using the embedded browser in Creo using config.pro option allow_import_file_extension and list file types; been that way for years.... Earliest date of comments related to this task was 2013...

WGM provides a client-side configuration option to attach such a neutral file type as secondary attachment and upload it along with supported CAD Document file types. Using wgm.autoattach, for example, you can add analysis input files when checking in CATAnalysis file in Windchill.

 

In fact, allow_import_file_extension allows to save neutral file types to Windchill as CAD documents, it is not recommended because there is limitation in iterating these CAD documents with new contents.
