Download Content
Use the Download Content action to download specific content from the authenticated Windchill server.
The Download Content action does not work for any Windchill server which has Windchill Rest Services 1.4 installed (where v3 of the DocMgmt domain is present). This has been fixed in Windchill Rest Services 1.5.
Complete the following steps to use the Download Content action in your workflow:
1. Drag the Download Content action under Windchill to the canvas, place the pointer on the action, and then click or double-click the action. The Download Content window opens.
2. Edit the Label, if needed. By default, the label name is the same as the action name.
3. To add a Windchill connector type, refer to Supported Windchill Connector Types.
If you previously added a connector type, select the appropriate Connector Type, and under Connector Name, select the connector.
4. Click TEST to validate the connector.
5. Click MAP CONNECTOR to execute the action using a connector that is different from the one that you are using to populate the input fields. In the Runtime Connector field, provide a valid Windchill connector name. For more information about MAP CONNECTOR, see Using Map Connector.
6. In the Select Media Entity list, select the appropriate media entity from the authenticated Windchill server.
This list specifies all entities or navigation properties that support media entities. Entities that support media have the HasStream property set to true. The navigation property on an entity is represented as EntityTypeName/NavigationPropertyName.
7. In the Entity ID field, provide the ID of the entity for which you want to download the media entity.
8. In the Media Entity ID field, provide the ID of the media entity that you want to download. If the media entity is a collection, provide the ID of the specific media entity that you want to download. This field is optional.
9. Click Done.
