Need to separate copyOver behaviour for New View or New downstream Part

Need to separate copyOver behaviour for New View or New downstream Part

When creating or updating an equivalence link between an upstream and downstream WTPart, some attributes, IBAs or documents links are copied forward from the upstream WTPart to the downstream WTPart. It behave like that if the downstream part was created by New View (same number , ie WTPartMaster), or a New downstream Part (different part number)

The attributes or links copied forward are set in 2 properties:

com.ptc.windchill.mpml.copyOver.create.wt.part.WTPart

com.ptc.windchill.mpml.copyOver.update.wt.part.WTPart

But it does not take into account if the downstream part is a new view or a new downstream ...

need to split these properties to control also the copy other when downstream parts are "new view" or "new downstream"

for example:

com.ptc.windchill.mpml.copyOver.create.newview.wt.part.WTPart

com.ptc.windchill.mpml.copyOver.update.newview.wt.part.WTPart

com.ptc.windchill.mpml.copyOver.create.newdownstream.wt.part.WTPart

com.ptc.windchill.mpml.copyOver.update.newdownstream.wt.part.WTPart

or more precise properties per target downstream View.  to be able to choose which attributes to update depending of target view

com.ptc.windchill.mpml.copyOver.create.newview.MANUF.wt.part.WTPart

com.ptc.windchill.mpml.copyOver.update.newview.MANUF..wt.part.WTPart

com.ptc.windchill.mpml.copyOver.create.newview.SERVICE.wt.part.WTPart

com.ptc.windchill.mpml.copyOver.update.newview.SERVICE..wt.part.WTPart

Cause in case of a new downstream part, it is a different physical part (may be with a different CADDocument, mapped IBAs values from CAD ...)

for example a semi-finished part with more thickness . and don't want to propagate values from upstream ...
