To Integrate Changes in Creo Parametric
1. Start a Creo Parametric session and retrieve the target object to be integrated.
Integration must be started in Pro/INTRALINK Workspace prior to beginning the integration process in Creo Parametric. The target object is checked out from the Commonspace browser and appears in the Workspace browser. The source object is then no longer listed in the Workspace browser.
2. Click File > Integrate on the main menu for the mode.
3. The MERGE_VIEW Window appears, displaying the corresponding target or source object (whichever is not yet active in the session), and the DIFF_VIEW Window appears, displaying the difference report for the object revisions. The INTEGRATE menu and the ACTION menu appear.
4. Specify an action to be taken (Take From Source, To Delete, Do Manual, and so on) for items in the difference report. For example, if you choose to merge different dimensions for an item, the source dimension value is used in the updated target object. If you specify an action for a child item, Creo Parametric warns you that parent items are marked with the same action; you can then confirm or cancel the assignment.
5. If a feature needs to be integrated manually from the source object to the target object, exit Integrate mode, then use commands in the FEATURE menu (such as Delete or Copy) to do so. If you use Copy, specify FromDifVers and Independent to indicate how and from where the feature is being copied.
6. For items that you have integrated manually, use the Merged and Deleted commands in the ACTION menu to indicate the updated status of each item.
7. For items which you marked to be integrated automatically (using Take From Source, To Delete, and so on), click the Execute command from the INTEGRATE menu.
8. Upon choosing Execute, all items are updated according to the specified action (for example, if you selected To Delete, the corresponding items are marked DELETED). If you choose to delete a feature that is new in the target object, this feature is removed in the updated target when Execute is chosen. If a merge is not possible because of missing external references, or if the merge regeneration fails, the standard regeneration failure interface appears.
If the RegenBackup option in the ENVIRONMENT menu was set, then the system first backs up all the targets that would be affected by the Execute command before actually processing the command. After the execution has completed successfully and provided that you have not already restored all the affected objects from within regeneration, you can then confirm or cancel the changes. If you cancel them, all objects that have not been restored are restored from their backups. All items that are undone also become unmarked, so that you can execute them again.
9. Click Done/Return from the INTEGRATE menu when the integration session is finished. Updated versions of target objects are saved automatically. You may continue to integrate changes at a later time repeating the process explained above.
After the integration process is complete and the modified target object is saved, you must enter a Pro/INTRALINK session to submit the modified target object back to the product database.
Resolution in Pro/INTRALINK
Submit the modified target object back to the product database for approval. Upon approval, it becomes the latest revision of the object in the Pro/INTRALINK product database.
