Does anyone know what condition this state change warning is catching? Can you please provide an example if you do?
Hi Sally, I might be wrong but I think this warning might be seen if you are trying to change the state on a file and one of its referenced files cannot move to that state.
For example if you are changing state on a SolidWorks Part, and it's reference drawing is already released and cannot be moved, that warning might show up.
I beileve you get rid of this warning by:
1) Open EPDM Admin Tool
2) Right-click on a user/group, Settings
3) Go to Reference Dialog, tick "Do not mark referenced files when changing state"
Hope this helps.
Thanks for the input, but that's what the "no right to change state" warning is for.
Also, "do not mark referenced files when changing state" simply means that the default behavior is that the referenced files won't be checked in the dialog box (i.e. doesn't try to move all referenced files together through the transition automatically). However, the referenced files listed will always show up in the dialog box regardless of this setting; they just won't be checked by default.
Hi Sally, you are right. Apologies for my previous post.
I did a little more research, I think if you go into the Admin tool, and double -click on a user or group, go to Warnings:
- In the drop-down, make sure it says Change state
- Ensure that Parent can't change state is not ticked
I've attached a screenshot from my computer.
Hi Prasad. Thanks for folowing up, but I think there might have been a little confusion as to my question. I know how to enable and disable the warning, but I just was curious to know what scenario the warning actually flags.
Hi Sally, sorry for the confusion. I must admit this has stumped me. i have been trying to get the warning to come up for me, but so far no success. What specific action were you doing when the warning came up?
Hi Prasad. No worries. I never actually got the warning. Just wanted to know if I could use this to my advantage or not is all. Anyways, it's not a big deal... just curious that there's not explanation of it in any of the PDM help guide.
