Select IBAs when customizing the search results table view

Select IBAs when customizing the search results table view

In reference to Document CS63168.  We should be able to select the IBAs to display with customizing the search results table view.  If only one type (e.g. CAD Document) is selected for a search, the IBA's are available to display in a customized search results table.  However, if more than one type is selected (e.g. CAD Document, Document), IBA's are not available.

It seems that the IBAs from each of the selected types could be made available to select to display in a customized search results table.

I personally think as long as a common (even if its custom) attribute is available then we should be able to add it to the view.

Michael Schumacher‌‌ & Gord Mehta‌,

I'm not sure if this will solve your use case, but in Windchill 11.0, if an IBA contains the value that you searched for, that IBA column indeed will be automatically added to the search results table.

For example, if you search for "steel", and you have some WTParts, EPMDocs, and WTDocs that all have "steel" as a value of an IBA, then those columns will be shown ad-hoc.

Does that make sense?  Does that help solve your idea?  Or are there other attributes you'd like to see in the table view that you didn't search for?  Can you give example?

Hi Gord - You might want to check out the discussion under this product idea: Allow all fields in Windchill search

Thanks a lot. This is exactly what we are looking for.

We will probably upgrade to WC 11 in late 2017 or early 2018.
