SolidWorks Drawing and PDF files are Not Uploaded into Agile from SolidWorks When Users Selects the Save Option (Doc ID 2196050.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 06, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Agile Product Collaboration - Version to [Release 9.3]
Oracle Agile PLM MCAD Connector - Version 3.4.0 to 3.4.0 [Release 3.4.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Users download and check out assemblies and drawings. After making changes the user selects Agile-Save with Drawings. The drawings, assemblies, and components are on the save preview. The user selects Save and then continue.

PDF files are being generated for drawings in the workspace, but the *.PDF and *.SLDDRW are not being uploaded to Agile. Agile shows that the model files (.sldasm and .sldprt) were uploaded, but the .SLDDRW objects show that the file is the same as for the previous version.

A user reports that if the number of drawings being saved at one time exceeds more than two or three then these failures to upload begin to happen.

This is especially true if the drawings are being saved with the models at the same time.

This happen when the PDF generation for drawings is enabled. If PDF generation for drawings is disabled then the files are uploaded.


Expected Behavior:

*.PDF and *.SLDDRW should be saved into Agile.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Prerequisite: Activate PDF viewable generation in MCAD.
  2. Open multiple, plm-known drawing files in the CAD system.
  3. Save Session, the Save Preview opens.
  4. Save everything to Agile with activated "Save" or "Check In" save option.

Issue: Although (at least when selecting the "Save" save option in MCAD) the MCAD connector displays a successful save process, the CAD drawing and the PDF viewable have not been transferred to Agile (Files tab).
