More Intuitive Error Messages

Status: Comments Requested
by *Expert Elite* on ‎03-29-2013 06:38 AM

Can we please be a little more descriptive in the error messages?

I get a message that tells me I cannot move a specific file in the vault from one location to another.

The message reads "File Cannot be moved"  looking at the details it says "File could not be moved due to vault error"

Really?  Why couldn't it have explained to the detail of saying one of the factory files was checked out causing this file not to be moved.  This is just one example.  I would like to see all messages be a little more descriptive.

 

Side note.  I would like to see less messages as well.  That is more of how the software is written though.

Probably a different idea for a different day.  :smileyhappy:

It would be nice to manage things like saved searches, grid settings and plug-ins through the Vault Settings window instead of copying files to each Vault user's computer.

 

Project Thunderdome is a good start, but I would like to go beyond Thunderdome.  It would be better if the app were easier to use and built into Vault.

The Lifecycle Event Editor is currently available only through the Vault SDK.  However the tool is not just for custom programmers.  For example, it's used to configure Project Sync.  Making it part of the Vault client would make admin tasks more convenient.

Hello,

We are trying to add a stamp or Water mark in the file preview based on life cycle state change. There should be a option in the API to do so, based on the requirement in life cycle state change. Even tried to check if any event is assosiated with preview tab click.

If we have a file with security based on Groups you will encounter a problem:

Case:

SALES can only see RELEASED

ENGINEERING can see Everything

Problem:

When the file in REV.A and Released State is send to Work in Progress, the people from SALES does not see the file any more.

They should have the ability to see the Released File, while Engineering is working on an improvement or modification

Formulas for UDP's

Status: Comments Requested

Why not to create formulas for UDP's? Even very-very simple just for text processing and calculation on-request.

 

Guys, Vault's running on SQL - como Dios manda...

MiWaNiZa, Can you provide some examples of formulas you would need and what you would use them for?

Item Master Improvements

Status: Accepted
by Active Contributor tmoney2007 on ‎02-07-2013 08:31 PM

When it is being sold as the integration point for Vault, the Item Master is inadequate.

 

First, lifecycles for items should be as configurable as for files.  If you use the system as intended and control the lifecycle of the file through the item, you are severely constricted.

 

Items should assume the properties of the files that created them, or they should be easily called through the API.

 

Given the possibility that an item could be created before the CAD representation exists, there needs to be an ability to attach a CAD file as a representation of an item after the item has been created (this is also a huge hurdle if a company converts a product from 2D to 3D).

 

Document item types should exist so that external applications can reference and control files that don't represent parts.

 

OR do away with the item master and integrate the BOM capabilities (for 2D and 3D) of item master into the file interface and do away with item master altogether.

 

This would probably help with any plm integration, PLM360 included.

Hello,

i think it's useful to have a scripting-interface like vlogic (http://justonesandzeros.typepad.com/blog/2012/03/vlogic-2013.html).

It should be possible to make extensions with this scripting interface for the job server, too.

Best regards

Michael

Enable- /Disable MenuItems

I'm not sure if it is allowed to request new API features in Idea Exchange.

 

It should be possible to enable/disable custom commands introduced by a vault extension. E.g. if a command is only available for a special user (Administrator) the command should be disabled for all other users.

Server Side Events/ Extensions

Status: Future Consideration
by rotring_ds on ‎06-28-2012 11:30 PM

I'd like to have the ability to write Server Side Extensions which can be executed when an Webservice Command Event is fired.

That would make it possible to keep data consistent more easily (currently, if a client doesn't have the necessary Extension installed, the event is not handled).

 

I know, you can create a Job to be executed on the JobProcessor to circumvent that problem, but Jobs are delayed and events would be more immediate.

 

An alternative solution could be some Server Based extension deployment. If extensions could be stored on the server and each client executed/loaded these, the problem might be solved too.
