Revision history:

Introduced in QPR 2014.1

 

Performs a procedure in the model.

 

Synopsis:

 

PGModel.ExecuteProcedure(Procedure, Parameters, out Result)

 

Parameters:

 

Procedure: String. Defines the procedure to be executed. Currently supported procedures:

ReplaceWith: replaces an element with another element.

Parameters: String. A semicolon-separated list of parameters for the procedure.

Supported parameters for the ReplaceWith procedure:

oOriginalElement=<ElementId>[.<Instance>] | <ElementSymbol>[.<InstanceId>]: Defines the element and instance that will be replaced - a process step, store, organization item, or a custom element. If InstanceId has been defined, only that instance will be replaced. If InstanceId is not given, all instances of the element will be replaced. Diagram elements cannot be replaced.

oReplacingElement=<ElementId> | <ElementSymbol>: Defines the element that is used to replace the original element. This element cannot be a diagram element.

oDeleteOriginalElement=True | False | 1 | 0: Defines if the original element will be deleted after the replace has been done. The default value is False. If DeleteOriginalElement is True, the InstanceId cannot be given in the OriginalElementId parameter. If the element cannot exist without instances and all instances are replaced, the original element will be deleted regardless of the value of the DeleteOriginalElement parameter. If the element cannot be created on diagram, the original element will be deleted regardless of the value of the DeleteOriginalElement parameter.

out Result: Variant. Either success or error. Not used with the "ReplaceWith" procedure.

 

Required Rights:

 

Modify rights to the all diagrams where the element instances are replaced, and at least view rights to the element that will be used as the replacement element.
