Log changes made by Batchloader on part history

Hi. When I create and then release an ECN, I can see some descriptions and comments if I go to Views/History. However, I would like to find a way to also add some description on the History of the part when I use the batchloader to update any part properties. Is there a way to accomplish this?

Also, I am wondering if there is a way to also add comments when a manual change has been made (let's say, a manual release of a part, or manually promoting a part due to unforeseen circumstances).

Thanks in advance!

  • For manual release you could use the "Get Comment" checkbox in Lifecycle transitions. This gives user a prompt to enter a history entry. As far as I remember this doesn´t work for promotion triggered by Innovator itself. But as you want to track manual promotions it would be worth a try.

    Regarding Batchloader this is a use case I would also be interested in. It´s on a very basic way possible track whenever somebody logs in with an non-browser based application like BatchLoader. So you might create an server Method that checks if users comes from an external tool and write History entries by yourself.

    But that’s just a small brainstorming without any testing! There might be better options available already!
