Gateway: How to generate a pure IIF file from document

Hi all,

we have used the Requirement Solution for some years now (stated with the 2007 solution) and recently updated to I10.2.

For a maintenace project I am now asked to Re-Import an updated Word-Document into a 3 year old Integrity Document that was originally imported with the 2007 Solution.

The Document does not include an attached "source-document.iif" file as this "process" was invented later.

Does anyone know a way to easily generate the a IIF file of the current doument content which I would attach manually afterward; so the re-import would have something to match against.

I assume that the file is generated temporarily during a gateway export process anyway.

Or do I have to create my own XML-report template

THX in advance

Hi David,

in the meantime I found a way to export the pure iif file.

All i needed was an addiotional entry in the gateway-tool-config.xml file:
[code]
<export-config>
<name>iif Raw</name>
<exporter id="IIF"/>
<extension>iif</extension>
<title-field>Summary</title-field>
<gateway-configuration-name>IIFDocumentExport</gateway-configuration-name>
</export-config>
[/code]

Hi Mattias,

I thought there was an example on our downloads page (http://www.ptc.com/appserver/auth/it/esd/product.jsp?prodFamily=MIG), but I don't see it anymore. Below is some sample XML you could use.

Regards,

Dave

I got interrupted, but meant to explain that this is a gateway re-import template that will allow you to update an existing document number with new content. So if you export to get the ID, then re-import, Integrity will note the changes in the current document. Hope this helps your cause, albeit another route.
