Hi All

Il release 2011 it was possible create a bom using UpdateItemBOMAssociations.

But in release 2012 is not possible.In vault.chm i read that now,using this method,is possible to update existing links.

Not possible adding links.In 2011 it was possible.

Are there some workarounds?thanks

Hello Alessandro,


This is actually a typo in the SDK documentation. The UpdateItemBOMAssociations method can be used for creating a BOM as well as updating BOM's. The Remarks section in the documentation should actually read, "Prior to calling this function, EditItem should be called to lock the parent Item for editing. After the BOM has been reordered, call a commit function, such as UpdateAndCommitItems, to finalize the changes."
