Loosing Content References using Documentum adapterJuly 14, 2010 at 3:25 pmParticipants 3Replies 4Last Activity 12 years, 8 months ago
One of our users is losing content references in her XML files.
She has parent.xml and child.xml.
child.xml has content references to parent.xml
After she edits parent.xml sometimes child.xml loses the references to parent.xml… So when she checks out child.xml she gets the following error (attached screenshot).
XMetaL(R) Author Enterprise 5.5 (Version#: 184.108.40.206)

What version of XMetaL EE for Webtop are you using, and for what level of Documentum?
We were having similar issues with XMetaL EE 5.5 and DCTM 6.5 SP1. We had to request a patch, then all was ok.

Thanks for the response pmasal. I am not sure I understand your question. What do you mean by what level of Documentum? My post has the version listed under environment.
Thanks!pmasal July 14, 2010 at 3:57 pm

I'm sorry, I didn't see that you provided all the required information (didn't scroll down far enough).
I think you're encountering the same issue with Reusable Components/conrefs that we had. If so you need a macro that can be placed in your C:Program FilesXMetaL 5.5AuthorStartUp folder to allow the references to work.
I would send the macro and install instructions, but because this was created specifically for us, I would recommend that someone from JustSystems Support send the required fix, because there were some stipulations about using the macro, and there might have been additional developments in this area. Addam Smith and Ning Hu (both from JS development) helped us out and they would likely be able to help immediately.

I was able to resolve the issue. She had changed
tags. XMetal requires that the elements with the conref attributes must be of the same type that they are referencing.
Thanks for the feedback pmasal.
