Before users can start creating Collaboration Links from Windchill to the CLM Application , you need to define what CLM projects will be visible to the product you manage. This is done by defining associations between your product and those in the CLM Application. Once set, the association type will define on its own the available link types to create from the Windchill product to the CLM project. It is worth to mention that when creating an association, the available association types will depend in turn on the nature (domain) of the CLM Application.
This app supports the following associations and corresponding link types per application domain:
