Method Keyword Improvements for Property Mapping

Improvements include the processing of “Method” keywords on all inbound operations (Add, Check-in and Save) and passing a full context item as input to the method along with any custom parameters that you want to include.

Missing Files Dialog

This Missing Files warning dialog has been improved to show which file a missing component references in order to make it easier to locate the problem references.

BOM Quantity as Floating Point Value

The Connector has been enhanced to allow floating point decimal values for the quantity property. Previously, only integers were supported.

Part Item Revisioning on Assignment

A new resource, “Do not version Part On Assignment”, has been added for cases when you would prefer the Connector make the Part-CAD link without revisioning the Part item residing in Aras.

Assigning Part Number to All Configurations

A new resource, "Assign Part numbers to All Configurations", has been added and when enabled, the Connector will load the complete family hierarchy of all the generics. The part number assigned to the generic will then be assigned to all of the configurations (referenced or not).

Keyword Mapping of Original File Name

This release adds another related keyword named “Connector.Original_File_name_base” which represents the base file name without the extension. This can be useful when the user wants to map the original file name to the native_file_name and then map it to item_number (using Connector.File_name).

Connector Server Packages for this Release

Language Localization

The Connector has been architected to support any language through the creation and usage of language specific resource files.
