Client used PCM-Archiver to move away from PCM and rename attachment files
The client is one of seventeen US Department of Energy National Accelerator Laboratories.
Want to sunset Primavera Contract Management, which has been unsupported for years and has security issues, but it has information that must be kept.
The names of some file attachments in Primavera Contract Management included characters that are not legal in Windows file names.
Primavera Contract Management environment database was overloaded, causing random errors when PCM-Archiver downloaded attachments or generated PDFs.
PCM-Archiver extracted all record data, attachments, and PDFs of the default form into an archive location on the file system that doesn't need Primavera Contract Management, or any other special software, to access.
We made changes to PCM-Archiver to automatically rename attachment files with illegal characters when it downloads them.
PCM-Archiver already had logic to re-try operations when certain errors occurred, which we expanded to cover these new errors. This allowed the PCM-Archiver process to complete successfully.
