I've been able to use a computed field and have it point to my thin client for Vault Pro and pass it a drawing number and have it return the search results. SEE IMAGE. This is very cool.....however.......what I realyy want is the link to the file details. SEE SECOND IMAGE. Is there way way to accomplish this using a computed field?

I wasn't able to see a clear method of passing paramters to Vault for this URL.

Orrin,

 

At this time there are two different ways you could go about this, given that vault web creates a unique url per item.

Pre generation:

Create url in vault, add to computed field

Post generation:

Use API / Autodesk 360 connect generate url, add to a feild in the PLM360 item, call on field for computed field generation.

Thanks.

 

Let me expand the topic a bit.

 

If I did use the search only method for accessing the web client file link - is there a way to pass data that are not in the item details tab? I'm thinking I may want to search based upon file name AND rev number/letter. How can I access those properties when they are not part of the item details?

Orrin,

 

To complete this action you would need a field within the item tab that tracks current revision (requires scripting) of the object, then with at combined information you could connect to vault(Autodesk 360 connect) send the item id along with the revision, retrieve the item url and add that to a field in the item tab which would then feed the computed field for the url of which needs to be displayed.
