Managing Broken Links

  You can manage broken links. This rule enables suppliers or OEMs to choose not to expose all documents, thus ensuring Intellectual Property protection.

The Keep  External Reference icon and the Reload   icon in the Rules toolbar in the Reconcile Window enable you to manage broken links by either keeping a reference to an external file or by reloading the data from the database. These reconciliation rules are available for documents that are part of the design or of the assembly but that are missing while reconciling, enabling you to integrate incomplete designs received from a supplier. Please see Defining Reconciliation Rules for specific information including rule availability.
