When we were using Intralink 3.x we had a revision sequence that went from X0-X20,0,1,2,3...etc.
We have been using Intralink 9.1 since 9/09 and I have just discovered that we can only go as high as X10 before it increments to 0. I don't recall this being a limitation during migration and we obviously missed testing it..
I'm not sure we had any documents at rev X11 or higher, but today a user tried to revise to X11 and got an error message saying that the new revision did not exist or was not higher than the previous revision (X10)
Is there a way to update the revision sequence to add X11-X20 back in or is this a non-trivial task? It is the only sequence we have defined for documents.
I'm off to do some research..
You'll need to update your StateBasedRevision file (that might not be the exact name). I believe instructions are in the on line help and/or the Business Admin Guide.
One thing we recently did to keep track of Engineering Orders against models was add more versions into the statebasedversioning.xml. This allowed us to release models at the same time as an EO.
<value> - </value>
<value> - </value>
It worked for us to just add in the new itterations. It will only show up when you go to revise a part, but it shows up for all parts that had that "ASME" series. There are other methods of creating rules in Windchill config files with multiple levels but we weren't able to get it to work how we needed it to. It took quite a bit of testing on a development server toverify everything would work how we expected it too.
From the Windchill "Versioning Schemes Administration" link on the site/utilities page it shows:
In this example, the series levels alternate between a multicharacter series and an integer series. This Harvard series would result in version numbers such as A.1.A.1.
Based on how it's written I would think it would be A.1.1 where the last 1 is itteration.
Hope this helps,
