Crossover domains can be a convenient way to copy values from a parent work order to a new child when adding a child work order. In most cases this works without a problem. However, if the values being copied from parent to child include ASSETNUM, LOCATION, and/or GLACCOUNT, the crossover domain may not work as expected. This is the case if these values do not match, for example, if the ASSETNUM does not reside at the location specified by LOCATION, or if the GLACCOUNT does not match the ASSETNUM/LOCATION combination.
In my previous blog post, “How to add a Maximo related object to IBM Maximo Anywhere” , I provided an example for adding a Maximo related object into a Maximo Anywhere app user interface (UI).

A view to show the details of each communication log.

Are you tired of extra clicks? Have you wondered if it was possible to skip the HTML display page and output your BIRT report directly to PDF? Well then, you've come to the right place!
In Maximo 7.5, the default is to run the report in HTML browser window, followed by outputting to PDF. However, I've found in many cases that users want the output in PDF format directly. Now, before we get technical, it is important to note that this change is not officially supported by IBM.
In order to... [More]

I took a bit of a hiatus from blogging during the month of February being out for a large portion of it at the IBM Interconnect Conference. But I'm back in the full swing of things now and want to share a bit of knowledge on Authenticating to your LDAP secured Maximo environment. This may be common knowledge to some as it is documented by other means. However for those who haven't ventured into configuring Maximo Anywhere to authenticate with LDAP, you need not worry as there isn't much to it!

Sometimes an admin needs to make some changes or maybe even to test some changes in their Maximo system and needs to prevent the 'normal' users from accessing the system, potentially corrupting the data during the config or testing and generally making a nuisance of themselves ( or working , as they like to call it ).
There is a function called Admin Mode available in Maximo and this can be set up to allow one or more Administrative users to access the system locally while preventing... [More]
