Are you talking about locking down just that variable? Or all variables?
All variables - just take away check out rights on that work state.
Just that variable - You could set up a dummy "lock" variable that gets an action to set to "yes" when transitioning from 1 --> 2. Then set your rev variable with a control logic to grey out if "lock" variable contains "yes". Then you'd have to add a transition action to clear that variable when it goes back to state 1.
Thanks for responding.
Yes, lock down "all" Variables. Since we Manually set the Revision in the data Card, we want the data card variables - we don't want the transition to automatically increment the variables or edit them in any way. What you see in the data card is what you get.
Then we want to Set the Revision in that state so its identifiable in the History in case we ever need to get back to it.
Data Card Revision = 2
We want the Revision stated in the history as Revision 2
See my screen shot below for example...
That revision line you see is set when you have revision numbers set in the revision.
You might be able to run a transition action to set a variable (once again with a dummy variable, so you can clear it or whatever...) Then under the version comment set it to "Revision changed to (revision variable name)" (revision variable name) = > symbol, variable, revision variable
