The windchill shell sets some environment variables. You need to call first 

D:\ptc\Windchill_12.0\Windchill\bin\windchill2.bat -setenv

afterwards try again

Thanks for taking time to respond but can you please elaborate this with example so i can use in Azure Devops CICD to process further.

 

After hitting the command I'm getting below error 

D:\ptc\Windchill_12.0\Windchill\bin\windchill2.bat -setenv

unrecognized option: -setenv

 

and it will helpful  to me if you have any other alternative to configure deployment through Azure Devops.

Thanks in advance.

 

 

You can check out this thread. Ben used to work for us and got it up and running in Azure devops. I know how to use it and can kind of follow it, but i cant explain how it works.
