You want to set up crontask parameters for the JMSQSEQCONSUMER or IFACETABLECONSUMER crontask instance so that only messages for certain enterprise services are processed by a particular crontask instance.
For example, you may want to process only workorder transactions associated with the MXWOInterface enterprise service. if you set the enterprise service name in your crontask parameters to a value that matches a valid enterprise service name but do not enter the name of an external system which hosts the...

Do you follow the 3 second rule? You drop a fabulous piece of toast and you have 3 seconds to quickly pick it up from the floor and still eat it - before it becomes contaminated?
Do you also apply that same rule to metrics or reports? The information must be analyzed and understood within 3 seconds or the user discards it and moves on to the next task.
Quickly consuming BI data is a critical, increasing requirement of businesses today. Using the new Cognos BI... [More]
This post describes a solution to the Locale-specific decimal separator-related problem that may cause the Inventory Options dialog to load without values. This document will be useful to you if you see the following when going to Administration > Organizations > Inventory Options > Inventory Defaults:
Out-of-box Maximo has 3 inventory-related MAXVARS that, like all MAXVARS, are stored as String values in MAXVARS.VARVALUE and MAXVARTYPE.DEFAULTVALUE. These MAXVARS,... [More]
So, end of March, and time to blog again. I was going to do an entry on upgrading from Maximo 188.8.131.52 to Maximo 184.108.40.206. Things didn't work out as I planned. I have 26 screen shots ready for that post (or posts), but at about screen shot 24, I realized that I had goofed. Instead of upgrading from Maximo 220.127.116.11, my upgrade database was at Maximo 18.104.22.168. That is not supposed to be upgradeable to 22.214.171.124. Rules are, follow the instructions step-by-step, and don't magically hope that the 126.96.36.199 upgrade will update my database without a... [More]
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). The example added the communications log object, which is related to the work order, to the Maximo Anywhere Work Execution app. This included:
A view to show the list of communication logs that are related to the work order.
A view to show the details of each communication log.
I have documented additional steps to... [More]
There is a bulldog on my toast. Combined with a steaming cup of coffee, its consumption is highly restricted.
You may also set up data restrictions in your Maximo environment - enabling users access to various subsets of data. Typical types of data restrictions include Organization and Site data restrictions.
Starting with Maximo 76 , new site, organization and set restrictions are applied to the metadata publishing process. This new restrictions enable that the user... [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!
To get started we have one... [More]

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]
