Publishing Question --Copy Forward

Publishing Question --Copy Forward

We have disabled representation copy forward when objects are revised and/or iterated.

Is it possible to prevent representation copy forward when an object undergoes state change?

In this case, if publishing fails, our watermark will have incorrect state information in the representation.

Kirk,

 

The answer is yes and no.

Here’s the thing. State change does not make a new object in Windchill thus there’s really no “forward” to copy to.  That’s the “no”.

 

The “yes” is that you could have the current  representation automatically deleted if the republish job is unsuccessful.

This does require writing some code but better that than people working with the wrong rep.
