Last updated on FEBRUARY 06, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Agile PLM MCAD Connector - Version 3.3.0 to 3.5.0 [Release 3.3.0 to 3.5.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


On MCAD connector 3.5 version the attribute "CAD Old Filename" needs to be populated with the Solidworks document in which it was saved from. With MCAD version 3.3 there was the ability to set CAX Name to "CAX_COPY_FROM". While MCAD 3.5 has same view under preferences, the user is  unable to add a value in the CAX Name column. In general users are unable to add lines or update fields in the subclass tabs of the MCAD preferences

Users are unable to populate/edit the “CAX Name” column.

Expected Behavior: The user should be able to add a value in the CAX Name column

Steps to reproduce:
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Launch CAD system
  2. Open Preferences from Agile Menu within SolidWorks and go to any subclass tab, like Design tab.
  3. Try to Set value in CAX Name column for any attribute such as "CAD Old Filename" or "CAD Filename"
  4. Notice that the CAX Name column is not editable, users should be able to edit the CAX Name column.
