Item Description Field Is Filled in Automatically Without Mapping

(Doc ID 2322586.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 30, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Agile PLM MCAD Connector - Version 3.5.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Actual Behavior

When only Design object's "Description" field is mapped to CAD property's attribute "Part Name" through Mapping Editor.
Item's Description filed is filled in by Part Number automatically after checking in both 3D model and drawings by executing "Save with drawings" and publishing to Agile.

Expected Behavior

Item's Description field not to be filled in by Part Number automatically

What is working

If Item object "Description" field is also mapped to CAD property "Part Name", Part Name is filled in to both Item Description and Design Description appropriately

Steps to reproduce

1. Create an Item in Agile
2. Create a new Part in Solidworks, save it locally and name it with the Item Number you have generated before
3. Set the mapping
4. Set the File Properties (important: leave the Value for the Design Description mapping blank)
5. Save the Part into Agile
6. Check the Item in Agile - Item Description should be mapped with the Item Number
