Installing the Adapter Extensions to Windchill

These procedures extend Windchill so that the Windchill user is presented with additional Windchill User Interface elements that expose controls and forms for the consumption of OSLC information from configured OSLC Providers. The procedures also manually configure Windchill with new properties to store relationships with chosen OSLC Providers.

Procedure

  1. Deploy the OSLC Adapter for PTC Windchill servlet WAR to its server and servlet web application server
  2. Confirm that Windchill itself is installed and is operational.
  3. Log into the Windchill server as an Administrator and as a Windchill Administrator
  4. Browse to the installation directory of PTC Windchill
  5. run Windchill Shell with bin/windchill shell
  6. Web browse to download the extensions for Windchill from the OSLC Adapter for PTC Windchill servlet
  7. Copy the zipfile windchill_resources.zip to a temporary staging directory, for example /tmp/sodius_install
  8. Change to the Sodius Installation directory
  9. Unzip the Windchill Resources Zip file
  10. Stop the Windchill service

When the script runs successfully, this completes deployment of the extension.

Starting Windchill Server (If Necessary)

Now that all extensions have been properly registered, you can restart the Windchill server:

  1. Run the Windchill Shell
  2. Start Windchill, type: windchill start
