Using Enterprise PDM 2011. How do I ensure that a checked in file always has a Revision set under Local Revision.
Local Revision meaning the one that shows on the Version Tab. The same Local Revision that has to exist so that a Task's Output File Details show correctly. If the Local Revision = No Revision, then when I make a PDF using the Convert Task with the Default path set to: <Path>\PDF\<Filename>_ REV<Revision>
An example output is:
If Local Revision has a value (say 3A), then the output would be: C:\PDF\Part_REV3A
I have figured out how to set this value whenever I change states (by setting variables and Incrementing Revisions) during the transisition. However, either during initial check in or modifing a file at a state and checking it back in, the Local Revision changes to No Revision.
I can manually fix this by selecting the file and Modify\Increment Revision, but this means it's not going to get done.
How do I set it so that anytime I check in a file, that Local Revision value stays set?
Examples when looking at Actions\Get Version
1. <Created> In this case the file was checked in, No Revision and created PDF is incorrect.
5. <No Comment> Checked out, saved, Checked in.
1.00 Changed State and set Revision during transition.
4. <No Comment> Checked out, saved, Checked in.
-.00 Manually incremented revision.
3. <No Comment> Versions 1-3 were created by Check out, save, Check in.
2. <No Comment>
In this example, versions 1,2,3 (before manually incrementing revision) and 5 output the wrong filename when a PDF is made.
Again, how do I set it so that anytime I check in a file, that Local Revision value stays set?
