Cannot check in a family table assembly with associated WT-parts in to Windchill PDMLink from Creo Parametric due to Owner Link issue

  • Cannot check in a family table assembly with associated WT-parts in to Windchill PDMLink from Creo Parametric due to Owner Link issue

Error message in event manager:

"The listed Parts have an existing Owner Link or are getting associated to other documents as Owner Link and the "Contributing Image Attributes" preference is unset.
They may be associated to their peer documents using an Image Link."


  • ​The WT-part for the latest revision is already owned by a earlier version of the CAD-document


Background:

In this example the name of the object is: 

  • CAD-object: 123456789.asm, version B.1

  • WT-part:     123456789, version B.1 

    • When checking info on this part we see that its already associated to 123456789.asm, version A.1

​​Fix:

  1. Log on as wcadmin

  2. Add the WT-parten 123456789 B.1 to a new Workspace (WS)

  3. Make sure that the linked CAD-objects are added to the WS: 123456789.asm, version A.1

  4. Mark 123456789 B.1 and go to Edit --> Edit association

  5. Mark 123456789.asm A.1 and press remove, now the WT-part 123456789 B.1 should have no links

  6. Checka in WT-parten: 123456789 B.1

  7. Now the user can update and synchronize the WS

  8. Check in the original CAD-object: 123456789.asm, version B.1
