What are the business objects for which a report manager cannot generate reports in Windchill.

What are the business objects for which a report manager cannot generate reports in Windchill.

Dear All,

I have been working on generating a few reports using Windchill OOTB from a few days where I am struggling to get exactly what I want. So if everybody who have already generated reports could provide information regarding for what business objects reports cannot be generated it would be helpful for me and others to filter out which reports can be generated and which cannot. For example, a report to show the user participant groups is not possible since user participant group information is not stored in the database but is stored in WinDS. In the same way if anybody\everybody could share information it would be of great help.

If you are on Windchill 11, using report manager and adding a type to your report you can get the list of all selectable types.

 

Take a look also at this document https://community.ptc.com/t5/Windchill-Questions/Resource-for-reporting/td-p/448738

 

In it you can find lots of report ready to use.

Thank you for the link Mr. Marco_Tosin, but what I was trying to generate was a bit more complex. I have experience generating reports for multiple requirements but this is quite out of my league. For example, I need to compare current iteration and latest iteration of the (n-1)revision of a given wtpart. I need to display the change in BOM and attribute changes in parent wtpart. So I asked if there is a way to know which objects are not allowed to generate report from.

If your request is to generate report for users and groups, then in the document I pointed you there is what you are looking for.

It is about BOM iteration comparison with changes reflection in the report which is not there in the report given. And also report related to workspace information. I will try using them as example and try to generate. Thank you Mr. Marco_Tosin.

Be careful that you CANNOT build a recursive BOM report using report manager.

Why not just use Info Compare from the Version History page?

Here is an example:

Assuming you are using WTParts...

Thank you Jeff for the detailed information.  I had given demo regarding this in the initial phase itself but requirement is a report to be generated using query builder. Is it possible to do this using query builder?
