When using RFID to audit assets at a location can be done using Maximo Mobile 7.5.1. How can this be done? Can I see who did the audit and when?
The first thing you need to do is associate the RFID Tag to the assets. This is done using the attribute MOBRFIDTAG attribute on the asset object.
1) Go To Application Designer
2) Open the Asset application
3) Add a new Text box to the screen
4) In the Text Box Properties add MOBRFIDTAG to the Attribute field

Sometimes you might have a question that you think is pertaining to basic product functionality, but you don't want to go through the process of entering a PMR and then waiting to ask one of our support engineers directly, through that channel. There is a faster way to get many of the answers to these... [More]
It's been a bit since my last entry in this series, so I thought I'd take some time this morning to finish off this tutorial on configuring a basic horizontal cluster. If you haven't read my previous posts, you can jump over to Part 1: WebSphere Configuration and Part 2: JMS Configuration .
In this final portion of the three part series, we will go over the following topics.
Creating the Virtual Host
Assigning Names to JVM's
Building and Deploying ear files
Today I am going to provide a workaround to avoid a common error that I usually face when testing Maximo Upgrade scenarios on DB2 databases. If you missed my previous "Maximo Upgrade Tips" entries, check them through this link .
One of the common errors that can happen during an upgrade of Maximo Base Services from versions 7.1.x to 7.5.x on DB2 databases is related with the application heap size configuration parameter of the database - applheapsz , usually set by default as 1024 or 2048 depending of what where... [More]

Recently I encountered a Maximo user who requested for a report parameter lookup to be added to a BIRT Report request page. Not just any parameter, but an unbound Location(s) parameter lookup that was to only show and display records subject to the Location being specified on the request page. Upon initial setup of the Table Domain and simple lookups.xml modification, the goal was partially reached but the lookup was returning ALL locations and not those subject to the Table Domain.
Within our Report Development Guide(s) (... [More]
If you are a Maximo user or a Start Center manager, you probably already created a Result Set portlet on your screen.
You must have also felt a need to add columns from other tables/objects to that portlet.
If so, you probably faced this technote:
On Result Set Portlet in Maximo 7x, Adding a Dot Notation/Joined Attribute
YES, now it is working perfectly.
BUT WAIT... Something is missing here!
I cannot filter/sort the dot notation column!!!
Any customer with a large database has run into the famous preset limit of 5000 was exceeded error message. There are a few ways around this message, increasing the size of the fetch stop limit. This workaround will not always work as it is a global setting and who wants large result sets across all applications for all users. Another option is to decrease the size of the result set itself by adding further information to filter information as needed. Good option but it we don't always have the option to filter out information into... [More]
I've been working an issue with a colleague recently regarding Change Polling with the VMMSYNC cron task. When using Tivoli Directory Server there is a key step that is missing in current documentation that isn't needed with Active Directory, missing this step will prevent Change Polling from working. Before I go into the the missing piece regarding Tivoli Directory Server, I will explain a bit more what Change Polling does.
In Maximo 220.127.116.11 change polling functionality was implemented. When enabled change polling allows the... [More]

Recently I have had a few people ask me how Maximo security works when users belong to multiple security groups with different conditions on each of the security groups.
To start I would like to go over some of the fundamentals of how Maximo decides what applications and options a user is allowed to access once they are logged into the product. What the user sees is determined by the security groups they belong to and how the security rights from each group combine to give the user a security profile.

Ok, you are a Maximo user, right? So, it is very likely that this dreadful message has popped up on your screen before immediately triggering a desperate reaction from you.

Recently, I got questions about why PM generated Child Work Orders from routes do not have PM (Preventive Maintenance) information populated. This is actually working by design. Only the work order the PM created references the PM on it. The children are created by the route stops, not the PM record. Hence, the child work orders would not contain have any PM information.
However, Maximo can be configured to have the PM information populated on child work orders by creating crossover domains and escalations.
Below are... [More]
