Automatically attach pdf and dwg to 2D

Hi everyone ,
I'm trying to automatically attach pdf and dwg to 2D from SolidWorks 2020 with Windchill 11.2.1. (WWGM 11.2.1.5) upon check-in.
I followed this guide:
https://www.ptc.com/it/support/article/CS58512?
But I can't figure out what the correct syntax is.
Which is the correct one for attaching pdf and dwg files?

PS: Same thing for Creo.
I attach an image of the preferences

Thanks,
Matteo.

Looking at the articles and WCHC topics, it looks like you need to define the "IMAGE" as *.jpg" or whatever image file format you plan to use. You also need to create all the additional file types in a known folder location using the required naming convention for the check in process to pick them up. I cannot find anything but save_bitmap config.pro option to have Creo save an image of a configured type. Nothing for PDF, STEP, etc.

 

For this reason, you may want to do this additional content publishing with WVS instead of this WGM preference.
