Extending Windchill InfoPages

Installation of the RLIA Adapter extensions for Windchill does not automatically alter the Product and the Change Request InfoPages. You will need to customize the tabs in the Product and Change Request views suitably by either modifying an existing tab or adding a new tab. This is done in order to gain visibility and access to the new OSLC attribute information.

Product InfoPage Customization

To access the OSLC Service Provider Associations for Products follow this procedure:

  1. Go to the Products details page (Browse > Product > Details)
  2. Choose to either click [+] to create a new custom Tab for the Product view or select an existing Tab in the Product view for customization.
  3. Enter edit mode from the Actions drop down menu on the top left of the view.
  4. Click on Customize button on the right top of the screen (visible in Edit mode) and choose OSLC Service Provider Associations
  5. If “OSLC Service Provider Associations” is not available in the selection list then the RLIA Adapter is not properly installed. Return to Installing the Windchill Adapter to retry the installation.
  6. Verify OSLC Service Provider Associations is now displayed on the page.

This concludes customization of the Product view. Now, attend to similar customization for the Change Request view.
