Tip Tuesday! Scripting Examples in Autodesk PLM 360

By     MARCH 15, 2016

Teach to fish, stockI’ve recently been spending time teaching some folks how to fish – i.e., how to be a PLM 360 Admin.  One thing I like to teach is how to reuse existing scripts and techniques in the default tenant – ones like the library scripts ‘isOwner’ or ‘createNewItem’ can be employed as you develop new workspaces.  Another great resource is the Scripting Examples section of the Help Guide.  I know, I know… reading a Help Guide isn’t as riveting as most novels (kinda like reading the phone book – no plot, just lots of characters).  However, there are a lot of great examples and code snippets in there and my tip today is to make sure you know it’s there and peruse it a bit.

Any particular examples you’d like to see added to the Scripting Examples?  Let me know!

If you’re reading this, I assume it’s because you enjoy PLM 360 tips!  Join me next week for PLM Talk I’ll be going over some End-User Tips, Tricks, and Training information.  In addition to covering some of my favorite tips I share when training end users, we’ll talk about developing end-user training materials.
