Provide an option or flag to hide one-off versions from search results

We would like to filter out one-off versions from search results (both simple and advanced search) as well as from REST web service results. A similar issue was reported in a case from 2016: https://www.ptc.com/en/support/article?n=CS244630

 

We have only a specific user group that deals with one-off versions. For other users, one-off versions have no value. Therefore, we would like to show/hide one-off version for specific user groups.

 

Right now there's absolutely nothing in the Windchill data model to differentiate a one-off version from a regular version. Even the Revision attribute value of a one-off version is exactly the same as that of the corresponding regular version. For example, if I create a one-off version for Rev A, the new one-off version's Revision attribute value is still A. Only the the version changes to "A-1,<iteration>".

 

There is a need for a separate attribute (which acts as a flag) in the data model to clearly differentiate one-off versions from regular versions. This attribute can then be used to show/hide one-off versions.

Define what you mean by 'one-off version'?

We have many parts that have been created, checked-in and released at A.1 or 0.1.
