I would like Vault to manage external iLogic rules that are called by Inventor ipts/iams/idws.
These rules are programming code that can affect model geometry, iproperties and drawing views. External rules are saved out to a directory visible to the Inventor project file. By placing them in a directory, it is very easy to share them among different Inventor files and users. If an external rule is edited and re-run on the Inventor file, the Inventor file will change.
Users can add the external rules to Vault using the stand-alone client, but the Inventor Vault Add-in does not see the dependency between the external rules and the Inventor file. If another user, possibly at a remote site, downloads the Inventor file from vault, Vault does not know to bring the external rules too. Users must remember to grab the latest copy of the external rule directory.
Vault should track these file dependencies. The rule files should be subject to the same revision and lifecycle control as any other file in Vault. Users should be able to perform all of the typical Vault commands on these files from the Inventor browser.
