The Set Alternative Name When Used In BOM Generation Task allows you to change a name of a model displayed in a BOM(Bill Of Materials). This can be made configuration specific.
|(Name)||The unique name for this task.|
|Alternative Name||The alternative name to use in a bill of materials in the given configuration.|
|Configuration Name(s)||The name of the configuration in which to set the alternative name. (leave blank for current configurations, Pipebar (|) delimit configuration names to drive in multiple configurations, or use asterisk (*) to set in all configurations)|
|Force Use of Alternative Name in BOM||TRUE to set the flag in the model to apply the user defined alternative name in the BOM, FALSE to use the original model setting.|
When this task is added the properties are static by default.
See How To: Change A Static Property To A Dynamic Property to enable rules to be built on these properties.
|Property Name||Example Rule||Example Result||Meaning|
|Alternative Name||Part123Config3||Part123Config3||The alternative name to use in the bill of materials for the given configuration.|
|Configuration Name(s)||Config1||Config1||The name of the configuration in which to set the alternative name. If this property is left blank then the current configuration will be used.|
|Configuration Name(s)||Config1|Config2|Config5||Config1|Config2|Config5||The name of the configurations in which to set the alternative name. The configuration names are separated by pipebars (|).|
|Configuration Name(s)||*||*||Will set the Name change for every configuration.|
|Force Use of Alternative Name in BOM||TRUE||TRUE||This will set the flag in the model to apply the defined alternative name in the BOM.|
