Newbie file

This may seem like a simple question but how do I access the file and how do I make changes to it?


Re: file

Which release? In 10.1 it is in <Windchill>/codebase/ In 10.2 it is in <Windchill>/codebase/WEB-INF/conf/

Use xconfmanager to set it. For example

start a windchill shell

xconfmanager -p -t codebase/ -s <somekey>=<somevalue>


xconfmanager -p -t codebase/WEB-INF/conf/ -s <somekey>=<somevalue>

Re: file

It is 10.2 but neither of your links seem to be working for me. Is there any other way?

Re: file

It should be the second command. Did you copy/paste? If so, try typing manually because the dash often does not copy/paste correctly.

Can you run "xconfmanager -p" to propagate?

Can you run "xconfmanager -p -t codebase/WEB-INF/conf/ -s testkey=testvalue?

Does it give errors or does it write "testkey=testvalue" into the file?

Re: file

it simply says webpage cannot be found

Re: file


I suppose that you have access to the windchill server.

Go to the file <Windchill root folder>/Windchill/site.xconf

This is the master file for changes, inside of it you can find commands as:

<Property name="NAME OF THE PROPERTY" overridable="true" targetFile="codebase/WEB-INF/conf/" value="VALUE FOR THE PROPERTY"

And there is your, in the path <Windchill root folder>/Windchill/codebase/WEB-INF/conf/

After that, all the chagest must be realized in the site.xconf ussing that style. You can't change directly.

When you finish to change/add/delete etc all the properties in site.xconf, you must go to windchill shell and write:

xconfmanager -p

This is the step by step method for changes, for your security.

severals of the changes need that you reboot Windchill, other only the background.

Attached may be of interest.

I always put properties files into a spreadsheet to record the OTB values.

Best practice is to add a few columns - OTB value, your current value, comments.
