Number-field missing in "Replace" dialog (Save as)

Number-field missing in "Replace" dialog (Save as)

When using the "Replace" functionality during a "Save as" in the workspace - it is only possible to search for replacements by "Name" (Commonname).

Problem:

  • Name is not unique
  • To many objects are listed (example "Bolt")

Here it should be possible to search also for "Number"

Good sugesstion.
Many customers also use the filename as identifier (which is also unique). Therefore I would recommend to add not only a search function for number, but also for filename.

Good suggestion to a good idea.  Without a unique identifier this collector functionality (such as number or file name) is almost useless.

Daniel Kremers‌, how did you get that replace functionality? I cannot see that button in our Windchill 10.2. Is it a customization or can it be activated with some preference?

Hello Jari Elomaa‌!

It is a Preference (Site):

Save As > ...Replace...

Thanks Daniel,

I'm only a product admin so that's why I'm not seeing it. I'll contact our site admin and ask, if this could be enabled for us.
