In Maximo 7.1 and 7.5, storeroom locations are not status-able objects. This means that storerooms that have no inventory items in them, and are no longer in use for any reason, are still available in applications and location lookup dialogs. Currently there is a Request for Enhancement record created to add this functionality to future releases of Tpae, however there is a way to set this up to prevent these storerooms from being visible to users using current releases, without significant administration efforts.
In today's blog post we will be using the iKeyman SSL tool on Windows to create and manage keystores, keys and certificates as well as provide some examples of how we can use this tool. We will describe the differences between self-signed and CA signed certificates, and will be creating a self-signed certificate for signing our own certificate request. Once signed, we will receive our certificates into the keystore our application will use.
iKeyman is shipped with WebSphere application server as well as many other IBM... [More]

as you are entering the record, then sometimes the best way to do this is with an Automation Script. An Automation Script may
sound daunting but you can create a simple script with only a single line of code that will copy the value from one attribute to... [More]
