Change Request Collect Objects for Arbortext

Are Arbortext users are having a problem with the change collector.

Currently, they Revise the Publication and then some of the  Assembly Groups and some of the Graphics. This puts just those items IN WORK. The structure of the Publication will contain many other Assembly Groups and Graphics that have not changed and are still locked from the last CR/CN and are Released for Production state.

As they cannot collect from the structure view, they can only select the Publication to start a New Change Request.

The problem is that after selecting the Collect Objects and opening up the Return Collected Objects window, the collect dependents return all items structured under the Publication. 

If we change the filter to only bring in IN Work, it will collect the last In Work iteration even if that is not the highest version.

The collector does not show the State of the objects so they need to blindly collect then sort and remove all the items that are Released for Production.

We have tired a few adjustments in the Preferences / Change Management / Collector / Affected Object Collector with no positive results.

Re: Change Request Collect Objects for Arbortext

I don't think I exactly understand the issue, but probably using a lifecycle state like 'Reviewed' for ready-to-be-promoted objects would allow to filter out required items.

 

Other than that, filtering required object in the collector or just manually selecting object for promotion could also be helpful.
