reject only one file (drw) in a promotion request containing more than one

reject only one file (drw) in a promotion request containing more than one

when promotiong e.g 5 drw´s in same promotion request it would be nice if the approver could reject the 5 drw´ s individualy

so that if there is a problem in one of the drw´s , only that drw would be rejected

today the whole promotion request is rejected

Hi

the problem is that a promotion is not only a workflow handler for validating objects ...

But it is also a baseline (ie a collection of objects ), that we can use for filtering a CAD structure or a WTPart BOM

It assumes that all the object collected are "coherents"

a kind of lightweight "Configuration Management" ...

allowing to reject some of the objects will make the Configuration non coherent. For example, an assembly with some components not Released ...

Anyway. we do this kind of customization, cause we use also the promotion request just like a validation workflow handler

Hi

This way of behaviour throughout the whole system would be great.

There's so many situations where it would be nice if Windchill processes the files that actually works or is accepted instead of failing /stopping all of the files if just 1 fails/ is rejected.

This function would be nice, but I also see too many problems. If you have some business rules to check the BOM release or that the model needs to be released before the drawing, etc. it's very complex to handle such situations. The workflow needs to run further, but what happens if the assembly needs another part, etc.
