Our service department recently was searching for a vehicle VIN number in Windchill. Lets say the VIN was 1HTGPSNR4HH542122 (an attribute, not name or number field), when this VIN was entered it returned nothing...what we found was that someone replaced the leading 1 with an I. No biggy, was fixed immediately. BUT we realized a searching short coming. The user tried leading ** to try and find the number, but couldn't. He searched:
With no return. Is there anyway to search and attribute with leading wildcards?
Solved! Go to Solution.
So this is working to specification and the only way to change its function is to add all internal names to the SearchableAttributesByType.properties? If that is the case I'll leave the system as is....we have WAY too many IBAs to make it worth it. We have been running WC for 5 years now and this is the first time it has come up.
Unfortunately yes, after you add this, you will have to re-index all the data. Its a pain. I went through this once. https://support.ptc.com/appserver/cs/view/solution.jsp?n=CS158084
