3.1.12.5. Connections with ERP linking

For connections as well, an ERP connection with link database is supported.

[Note] Note

ERP functionality of PARTconnection can be controlled independently of PARTdataManager and PARTproject.

When working with ERP connection, it is basically the goal to only use connections whose single components contain an ERP number.

Usually, the role definitions are set up so that the export of a connection is only then possible.

Normally, the status color green signals that this particular project contains fitting characteristics (with ERP number). For values, green signalizes that at least one project with this value exists and that this property contains an ERP number.

In this sense, the export is only possible on the "green path". In other words when continuously a green project and a green value are selected in all sections (see following image).[100]

Basic information about ERP integration and concerning the link database can be found under Section 3.1.11, “PARTdataManager – ERP/PDM extensions ”.

The following only explains the specifics when working with connections with ERP connection.

[Note] Note

When using an ERP-Integration, make sure that the key value of UseErpForAssPart is set on 1.

Configuration file plinkcommon.cfg -> Block PARTdataManager -> Key UseErpForAssPart

Configuration file plinkcommon.cfg -> Block PARTdataManager -> Key UseErpForAssPart

Furthermore the key erp_export_ts has to be activated.

Configuration file erpcustom.cfg -> Block LOAD -> Key erp_export_ts

Configuration file erpcustom.cfg -> Block LOAD -> Key erp_export_ts

Otherwise a respective error message is displayed.

The usual ERP rules have to be regarded.

[Note] Note

When working with ERP/PDM connection, certain elements may not be displayed because these were filtered by a specially set role restriction. Compare Section 4.12.2, “ Create and configure roles ” in PARTsolutions / PARTcommunity4Enterprise - Administration Manual.



[100] Primarily, the export condition of the actively selected role, determines whether the color green will be shown. In case there is no export condition given, the existence of an ERP number determines whether the color green will be displayed.
