Full Access parameters used in relations cannot be imported via xml file in Creo Parametric 4.0

Modified: 06-Aug-2021   


Applies To

  • Creo Parametric 4.0 to 6.0

Description

  • Full Access parameters used in relations cannot be imported via xml file in Creo Parametric 4..0
  • Consider first 2 parameters A and B.
  • in Parameters User Interface, when parameter value is:
    • driven by a relation (for instance A=400)
      • parameter A is flagged as Locked by Relation
      • it cannot be therefore imported back using a xml file as expected with >File >Import Data >In *.xml format
    • driving a relation (for instance d0=B)
      • parameter B is flagged as Full in Access column
      • same limitation occurs: it cannot be imported back using a xml file
  • In both above situations:
    1. accessing Details from Import Parameters User Interface gives following information:
The following conflicting parameters CANNOT be imported (possibly because they are used in Relations or violate Global Restrictions):
A
B
=> Is this behavior expected for parameter B ?
  1. When pressing Ok, no visible error message is thrown to inform users about failure to import the parameter values.
=> Is it possible to have a clear popup alerting users who did not access Details previously about the failure of the parameter import process ?
