change revision label maximum value

I use Windchill 10.2. I'm an untrained Windchill admin for my company. For the first time we have a .prt and .drw that need to be revised to 21, our system seems to have the maximum numerical value set to 20. See the message from Event Manager below.

 

Either new revision value "21" is not valid, or it is not greater than the existing revision value "20". Specify an appropriate value for the new revision.

 

Where in the Windchill Utilities do I find the place to change the max value?

There is a versioning file in Windchill that controls your versions.

My steps for setting up versioning rules:

  1. Change versioning Rules
    1. Get copy of existing versioning rules
      1.       java wt.series.LoadFileBasedSeries <filename.xml> -read
    2. Modify XML rule file for versioning sequence desired
      1.       Edit in an XML editor
      2.       Be sure it is UTF-8 encoded
        1. The read copy file may not be.
      3. Import XML Versioning file into Windchill from folder with file
        1.       java wt.series.LoadFileBasedSeries <filename.xml> -load
      4. Build Resource info files with new rules
        1. Run enumCustomize in command prompt
          1.       Load SeriesRangeSelectorRB.RB.ser from <Windchill_Load>/codebase/wt/series
            1. Add new series if needed
              1. The Key must match the name of the seed
            2.       Exit to rebuild the jar file
          2. Add rebuilt jar to Windchill code
            1.       Set directory to <Windchill_Load>/codebase
            2.       Ant -f MakeJar.xml custUpdate

Hope this helps. Ask if you need more help.

I've never done any XML work. To perform what you describe do I have to be logged into the Windchill server? I'm only familiar with some actions that can be accessed via a browser when logged in as orgadmin or wcadmin.

There's a lot there. As mentioned in my reply to BenLoosli, It sounds like server-side operations. I'll try to digest the support article you linked and then I'll have to team up with our IT, which are not Windchill admins either, but they have access to the servers.

My steps are basically the same as the video shows. I took them from the video when I wrote out my Windchill installation guide.

You will need access to the Windchill server and the administrator account to perform the version change task.
