Sorry to bump an old thread, but i have started having this issue in the last few days.
our cad workflow had been working perfectly for the last few months, however i have been making a lot of changes to permissions and groups in the last few weeks.
we have an initial "file creation" state that then transitions to an "in concept" state and a "drawing" state. i hadn't touched the initial "file creation" state or the 2 transitions out of there though. these were all set to "all users" group, as were the "in concept" and "drawing" states. "all users" had pretty much all permissions to do all things except destroy and set group permissions.
it had been working fine since those changes were made. now just in the last day or two it has started playing up and sending everything to the drawing state. i hadn't changed anything there though. the only thing i could see was that in the categories the file extentions didn't have the second % at the end as in the screen shot above. but even after adding that the models still go to drawing state. i have also tryed adding the group i am in to the states and transitions and giving all permissions and then checking something in, and no joy. still sends stuff to "drawing" state.
i have also noticed that some files that we have in our library folders are going to the drawing state. in stead of going to the "librbay" state like they should, we have a seperate work flow called "library", but it only has one state called "librbay" and i have no idea how EPDM "knows" to send a part that is in the library folder to the "library" state. (apparently neither does it any more....)
any help would be greatly appreciated.
ok, i just worked out my issue. some how the "initial state" check box had been checked in the "drawing" state.... i certainly hadn't done it. not even accidently, and the only other guy that has access to it swears he hasn't been messing around in there other than when i had been looking over his shoulder to set some permissions......so who knows?.....solidworks fairy strikes again!....
As laura Suggest put the condition on WF and also make sure you have rights on Initial State to Add File.
