One of the ways to create a non-auto select view in Maximo is to first create a native view on the Maximo database. This will give the Database Configuration application access to the native database's view metadata. The Database Configuration application will import the view but it will only populate the maxobjectcfg, maxviewcfg, and maxattributecfg (NOT maxviewcolumncfg) tables. The view will be treated as read only and Maximo does not support configuring the view in the Database Configuration application other than simply importing it.... [More]

I can’t decide. Some days I want a pie. Other days, I only want a bar.
The new Maximo BI Workspaces are perfect for my indecisiveness. I can change the display of the metrics from a pie, to a bar or from a wide range of other graph types. Using the Work Order Metrics by Classification workspace as an example, I initially view the Backlog work order metric in column format.
This column format is very clear, but I want to re-structure this metric so I can view the data... [More]

Content seems to be another one of those words who’s meaning has become blurred by our ever evolving technology and the need to define the work we do. The dictionary defines the plural meaning of the word content as “everything that is inside a container – example: the contents of a box”. In loose terms, you might see what we define as content in a similar way but you would have to take that definition pretty broadly. This article provides a description of challenges for content in the data world and... [More]
The domain application in Maximo is used for creating different domains in Maximo and two of these domain types enable you to validate and bring over data from other tables. This blog entry does not teach you how to use the Table and Crossover domains, rather it tells you how to get these two domains to work when looking up data from a table with Multi Language in use.
Due to the way Maximo handles Multi language functionality, you run into problems if you try to list and bring back data from a column that is Multi Language enabled. To... [More]

Thinking about the US Healthcare.gov website issues, it reminded me that people don’t always know what “performance” means. When we talk about performance we think it means “slow” or, if we think about our car, maybe we think it means “it works or it doesn’t work”. Well, already we have two different definitions of performance and we haven’t really begun to look deep into it. Having 17 years of experience in the performance business, I know that performance means the end... [More]

In Maximo when using the ‘Find’ field in the toolbar ,if there are multiple records that can be returned, the required record may not be displayed on the screen.

This is standard functionality.
