Windchill Modeler Reviewer: Check if a FullPort has been connected

Remark: This is a replication of my ProxyPort review.

 

There are a lot of predefined reviews in Reviewer; most of them are around UML. When checking system models, I stepped over a standard review "Port on an IBD without any connections". This is looking for port symbols without any connection.

However, when verifying if a full port has been defined and it is not used yet, a check would work better looking for any connector link in the dictionary. Otherwise the typical diagramming of IBDs showing the interface - without being connected- would result in many review items to be manually marked as acceptable when using the standard review. I've attached the review here, which can be placed in the User-defined folder of Reviewer. Before, change its extension to *.rev.

Example: A System has a CPU and a Digital IO. They are connected via pins:

The CPU is shown with its interface in another IBD:

The standard review lists all the symbols, which are not connected. The new review understands that all the 2 full forts are connected, while the other review lists all port symbols, which are shown as not connected:
