Tool to export and import ACL from Policy Administrator

I am looking for tool to export ACL from Policy Administrator in excel format.

The exported file can be edited and then has to be imported back to Windchill system.

The Windchill system should show the changes made in ACL.

Re: Tool to export and import ACL from Policy Administrator

The query below can be executed from within Oracle SQL Developer and can be exported to excel from there.  Then you can generate a load file to remove and add the existing ACLs.  However you need to program your own "remove" command because there is NOT one available OOTB.  This is what I have used to modify all ACLs in all of our existing containers (1200+).

SELECT --A2.namecontainerInfo Context,
--A1.name ParentDomain,
A4.name ChildDomain,
case when instr(A0.classnamea5, '|') != 0 then
    'WCTYPE|' ||
    (select wttdm.inthid
      from wttypedefinitionmaster wttdm,
        controlbranch cb
      where cb.ida2a2 = substr(A0.classnamea5, instr(A0.classnamea5, '|')+1)
      and cb.ida3b5 = wttdm.ida2a2)
  else
    A0.classnamea5
  end as ClassName,
DECODE(A3.permissionType,'0','+','1','-','2','!','?') PermissionType,
A5.name Principal,
case
  when A3.permissionMask = '-1' then
    '-1'

Re: Tool to export and import ACL from Policy Administrator

You can use LoadFromFile for importing ACLs, first you will have to come up with the XML in a specific format as mentioned below :-

You will have to write a program to generate XML in a specific format, may be reading inputs() from XLS example given below.

Re: Tool to export and import ACL from Policy Administrator

You do NOT need to write your own XML generation program.  Once a CSV is generated the XML can be generated with CSV2XML utility provided by PTC.

Re: Tool to export and import ACL from Policy Administrator

Hello Williams,

 

Does this SQL query need any modifications or can be used As-Is?

 

I tried using the same and couldn't get any values as output. Do you have any suggestions?
