Setting Type Overrides
Type overrides allow you to set certain attribute values that apply only for the selected type. Windchill RV&S allows two varieties of type overrides: overrides for fields and overrides for states. Overrides for fields and states can be set while editing a type.
When you set a type override, you are effectively customizing the applicable field or state attribute to suit the type(s) you administer. Windchill RV&S then applies the new attribute value only for the type you are editing. The customized value supersedes the global settings for the target attribute when referenced by the selected type.
Type overrides can also be set through the CLI using the im editfield and im editstate commands. For more information, see the CLI man pages.
