Design Folder Structure Shows Wrong SolidWorks Configuration (Doc ID 2568254.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 11, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Agile PLM MCAD Connector - Version 3.6 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
If a component is configured and open within SolidWorks, when the parent part or assembly file is checked in - it will display the active configuration
on the structure tab and not the actual configuration being used. For example assume in the part XXXXXXX.SLDPRT, the structure (child) part is
YYYYY-Y as indicated in the SolidWorks feature manager tree. But during EC/MCAD save preview and on the structure tab it shows whichever
configuration of the base part that was active at the time of saving (in this case the ZZZZZ-Z was active)- even if that configuration is not being used.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
Design folder structure should show the correct configuration

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

Notice in this example the YYYYY-Y is used as the base part material in the XXXXXXX.SLDPRT.  Save preview will show AAAA-A and put ZZZZZ-Z
in the structure of the XXXXXXX.sldprt if it is the last active configuration.


1. Open the Part family in CAD, check that the active configuration is YYYYY-Y
2. Open the Main Part (XXXXXXX) - feature manager tree shows the right configuration (YYYYY-Y)
3. Click Agile * Save Preview

   Issue: Structure shown not correct,
   Press continue -> Save successful but Structure tab empty in Web client

4. 2nd attempt to save
5. Open save Preview again * the correct structure is shown with the external reference.
6. Execute Save As and Continue → Structure is correct on web client. Structure tab shows the right configuration of the part family instance (YYYYY-Y)
7. Back to SolidWorks, Select a different configuration of the instance, and switch back to the main Part

   Issue: An update window appears for a moment. On opening Save Preview, Structure now references the active configuration in SolidWorks
