Publish rules based on EPM Document Name

Hi,

Looking for ideas to publish objects different from regular publishing output with specific file names.

Say if object name with MANF Ex: 12190242-MANF-00A.drw, this need to publish additional or different output from the regular publishing.

Let me know.

Thanks

Murthi

Re: Publish rules based on EPM Document Name

You can add a regular expression in your publishing rule,similar to the highlighted one. You can ignore the rest of the rules, we have that to publish DRW as a pdf and store it as a WTDocument in published content directory

<rules xmlns="http://www.ptc.com" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.ptc.com/PublishRulesSchema.xsd">

<authoring-application name="PROE">

<additional-files name="DrawingPDF">

<file display-label="PDF" type="pdf" default="true" output-prefix="pdf"/>

</additional-files>

<param-set name="Share with WTDocumentReleased Drawing">

<post-publish name="delegate">com.ptc.wvs.server.publish.AdditionalFilesPostPublishDelegate</post-publish>

<post-publish name="published-content-link">create</post-publish>

<post-publish name="name">{EPM_NAME}</post-publish>

<post-publish name="lifecycle-state">RELEASED</post-publish>

<post-publish name="lifecycle-template">Basic</post-publish>

<post-publish name="type">com.companyname.publishedContent</post-publish>

<post-publish name="folder">/Published Contents</post-publish>

<post-publish name="additional-file-primary">.*\.pdf</post-publish>

</param-set>

<condition name="IS_Released_Drawing">

<attribute name="epmdoc_name" regex=".*\.drw" />

<attribute name="epmdoc_lifeCycleState" value="Released"/>

</condition>

<if condition="IS_Released_Drawing">

<publish evaluate-rules-on-republish="true"  additional-files="DrawingPDF" param-set="Share with WTDocumentReleased Drawing" on="create-representation"/>

<publish evaluate-rules-on-republish="true"  additional-files="DrawingPDF" param-set="Share with WTDocumentReleased Drawing" on="schedule"/>

<publish evaluate-rules-on-republish="true"  additional-files="DrawingPDF" param-set="Share with WTDocumentReleased Drawing" on="checkin"/>

<publish evaluate-rules-on-republish="true"  additional-files="DrawingPDF" param-set="Share with WTDocumentReleased Drawing" on="unknown-source"/>

</if>

<publish evaluate-rules-on-republish="true" on="checkin"/>

<publish evaluate-rules-on-republish="true" on="create-representation"/>

<publish evaluate-rules-on-republish="true" on="schedule"/>

<publish evaluate-rules-on-republish="true" on="unknown-source"/>

</authoring-application>

</rules>

I mentioned as a special Assembly with prefix 11111 to be published as PLT as addditional format.

But validation fails :

(wt.viewmarkup.configurationTemplateLoadResource/SCHEMA_VALIDATION_FAILED) wt.util.WTException: PublishRules-AdditionalFiles-Special ASM.xml failed schema validation - Line 32: cvc-complex-type.2.4.d: Invalid content was found starting with element 'condition'. No child element is expected at this point..

Re: Publish rules based on EPM Document Name

You did not close the condition - <condition name="is_asm">, add a </condition> after that

Also your regular expression should be something like this, I guess - (1111).*\.asm

Re: Publish rules based on EPM Document Name

Hi Binesh,

I did the closed now and works fine.

It creates additional file format instead of alternate format.

Any clues ??

Thanks

Re: Publish rules based on EPM Document Name

Hello Murthi,

Are you getting any error? anything in BGMS log.

Thank you

Re: Publish rules based on EPM Document Name

Hi Binesh,

My testing results are wrong.

The validation was sucess, but the rules applied to all drawings instead of drawing with the number "ISPL"

I changed the condition as below for Regular Expression to find only the Number containing ISPL -

<condition name="is_insulator_plate_drw">
<attribute name="epmdoc_number" regex="\bISPL\b" />


Though validator seems to be right, Rule is accepted in Windchill

I need to have two conditions  -

1) EPM Document Number to contain ISPL

2) EPM Document type should be Drawing.

Re: Publish rules based on EPM Document Name

I would suggest that you keep the two criteria separate.  For example:

<condition name="is_insulator_plate_drw">

   <and>

        <attribute name="epmdoc_docType" value="Drawing"/>

        <attribute name="epmdoc_number" regex="\bISPL\b" />

    </and>

</condition>

Re: Publish rules based on EPM Document Name

Hello Binesh,

 

I am new to windchill customization. I have managed to publish PDF to a WTdocument with AdditionalFilesPostPublishDelegate. However, I would like to auto publish pdf to drawing content as attachment instead of WTdocument. Any suggestions for this?

 

Regards,

Siju

Re: Publish rules based on EPM Document Name

Thanks Tom and Binesh.

\bISPL\b failed to search for the intended object though. But And condition works fine.

I did achieved this with

<attribute name="epmdoc_number" regex= ".*(?i:ispl).*\.DRW" /> 

Where I could create additional file type, but still searching for the rule to alternate file type [By Default I have defined DXF for all the drawings] - I need to replace with TIF for drawings containing ISPL.

Thanks

Re: Publish rules based on EPM Document Name
