Am in need of,
1. Create a Single level BOM of any WTPart and export it as PDF format
2. Create a WTDocument using above PDF file as primary content
3. Associate WTDocument to WTPart (mentioned in Step 1)
Step 2 and 3 are quite straight forward.
But in Step 1, how to do I get PDF content stream at run time or how it would be downloaded particular location in server.
Note : All above 3 steps will be executed as process of WTPart work flow...
For item 1 you could run a workflow against the part in which you call a Cognos report. There is a workflow helper method that will enable you to run a report and save it back to the PBO as an attachment. This will require you to setup the Part with a workflow and also enable Attachements (which is a preference).
Help on the Worfklow helper method can be found here: https://support.ptc.com/cs/help/windchill_hc/wc110_hc/index.jspx?id=ChgMgmtAffectedAffectedObjResult...
Thanks for quick reply. I don't have cognos reporting, In other way will it work for normal (QueryBuilder) report?
I see where you are going with this but aren't you setting yourself up for data duplication? By saving the BOM as a PDF you are saying they should look at the PDF as the BOM. Why not look at the single level report again when needed? Avoid the multiple sources of truth.
