Managing ModelCHECK Validation during Check In

Managing ModelCHECK Validation during Check In

In the future we plan to use the gatekeeper functionality in Windchill due to prevent the check-in of models with ModelCHECK errors.

In order to familiarize ourselves with it, we tried out some things in our test environment:
In Creo, the ModelCHECK has been configured so that the ModelCHECK is executed when saving models and the two parameters MC_ERRORS and MODEL_CHECK are created or updated accordingly.
In Windchill, the object type CAD document has also been extended by the two attributes.
Finally, the check-in options in Windchill have been set to check the attributes on check-in.

Now it works wonderfully that check-in is blocked if there are ModelCHECK errors.
However, we have an additional requirement which we have not yet managed to meet:
Under certain circumstances, new models are created in which the ModelCHECK is not executed and therefore the two parameters MC_ERRORS and MODEL_CHECK are not created (this is intentional).
These models should not be considered by the gatekeeper at check-in and should be easy to check in!
Can this somehow be realized?
