Unable to Save Defined Mappings to Design Object Attributes (Doc ID 2012428.1)

Last updated on JUNE 06, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Agile PLM MCAD Connector - Version 3.4 to 3.4 [Release 3.4.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Anything added to a new SolidWorks CAD file property doesn't map to Design object attributes. Mapping to items work and loading existing CAD data maps to Designs/Items correctly.

Steps to reproduce this issue :

  1. In Agile PC define a page 3 text attribute for the File Folder/Designs/Design object - for example, name it "length" - be sure that the new attribute is editable by the user.
  2. Create a new part or drawing from either a template or using the create new function in SolidWorks.
  3. Add a new property to the SolidWorks file - calling it the same name as the page 3 attribute created (example length) - fill in a value for this property.
  4. Set up EC 3.4 mappings for "Initial Save" and "Update Save", connecting the parameter "length" to the Design PLM parameter "length".
  5. Do an EC Save Preview, and save the CAD file. The Agile attribute won't update.
