Resource for reporting

Re: Resource for reporting

I noticed the same. Apparently we don't have access to that content on the old site. That's sad but also understandable if they want to "clean up" as content now has been migrated - even

A while ago I manually updated the first 2 links I was interested in to point to the migrated content here on ... as an example here's screenshot of the first one from the document above:

Resource for reporting  PTC Community - Mozilla Firefox.jpg

I did the update by simply searching for "Automatic report creation" in the search box in the banner top right and pasting in the link, striking out the old link etc. Try doing the same with the text "Below returns latest Iteration of each Revision" from the next item to see how it works.

Yeah, it's a *lot* of work ... but in the end we will have:

  • All old content linked to above now living locally here. I guess (hope!) links on here should be able to live on for a pretty long time
  • Still have the full context of each of the links with the original Exploder posts. IMO there's value in that compared to just having e.g. the raw .qml files etc. attached locally

What do you think guys? Is it worth e.g. taking turns or voluntering on updating the links somehow? Or do you have other ideas?

P.S.: I'm not particularly attached to the way I did the formatting. Suggestions are welcome. I just tried to do what I did to somehow leave a trace of what I did to the document (yep, that's probably a habit picked up from working too much with Windchill ;-).

P.P.S.: Kudo's to Marco Tosin‌ for collecting the document above in the first place. It has become a very valuable ressource.

Re: Resource for reporting

Marc - can you confirm you're getting an authorization error on all the links provided above? I'd like to minimize the amount of changes we make to the original document, so tracking down exactly where you're seeing errors is critical.

Re: Resource for reporting

Ryan Kelley‌, I checked them all and removed one that worked, and found one other that pointed to the PTC Tech Support Site and removed that one too.  The remaining links all fail to reach the appropriate destination.


Re: Resource for reporting

Marco, the second to the last one - OIR export - is supposed to be included in the next major release in December (10.3 / 11.0).

Re: Resource for reporting

Thanks again, Marc. I've followed up with the team who maintains the PTC/USER portal to ask how we can alleviate this permissioning issue. Stay tuned.

Re: Resource for reporting

Thanks for your info Tom.


Re: Resource for reporting

Ryan Kelley‌  any status update available concerning this?

I ran into a situation today where the solution was listed in the document. but unavailable due to the broken links.  Very frustrating.

Re: Resource for reporting

Hey Marc - I've reached out to the administrator of the PTC/USER site to see if they can fix the user permissions on their ends but have yet to hear back. I'm just ramping up after a week on vacation and will reach out to them again.
