Hello Integration Framework team! Starting in Maximo 188.8.131.52 the Maximo Integration Framework (MIF) ifixes were separated from the Maximo or Tivoli Process Automation Engine (TPAE) ifixes. This was done to confuse you, right? :) Actually, it was done to decouple the products so that ifixes could be released more quickly, and shared between different products which use the MIF code, like REST and OSLC. So a MIF ifix can be used with the Mobile product as well as with Asset Management. Since the MIF ifixes are so much smaller... [More]

You should be all set.
I was using the Job Plans application in one of my test instances the other day and unexpectedly found one of the fields was read-only. Cross checking with two other Maximo instances I had access to, I confirmed that Out Of The Box the field should not be read-only, it should be read-write. The field in question was the Nested Job Plan field. Here it is: (NB: It is no longer greyed out - I have already fixed it - see below) Figure1: To correct this I had to export the application...

What are the mobile products and what do they do? The short answer is they each provide maximo users the ability to work from a mobile device, Such as a phone or tablet. The question is do you need to work disconnected? Connected? Or could you be in an environment where you will need to have the ability to work both connected and disconnected? Lets look at each product in order of appearance. IBM Maximo Mobile Suite Maximo mobile was originally created in a galaxy far far away but has come a long way in recent releases.... [More]

There is a rich text framework design gap in how entity characters are handled (encoded / decoded) behind the scenes that results in text truncation when a less than symbol ( < ) is present in a non-rich text field that's pulled into the communication RTE via a variable. This blog article will present a work around for this behavior. We'll set up the problem and the solution side-by-side. As with anything presented in these blogs, refine your approach in a test environment before rolling out to production.... [More]
There are a few things to consider. Please note that IE 11 Enterprise Mode is being asked to emulate IE 8 which we support for this version of Maximo. It is not a very popular option and our testing on this version is not as comprehensive as some other browser tests we do. We do, however, expect it to function similar to IE 8. Some functionality does not function as expected in IE8. The list includes, but is not limited to: 1. Rich Text Fields (Rich Text editor is used in Long Description (LD) fields to format LD content in a rich... [More]

One of the most useful features I have found within the Maximo GUI is the Field Help feature. This feature allows you to easily view the column and table that stores that field's data within the database. For example, here is a screenshot of the Asset field in the Asset application: On a Windows PC, you display the above dialog box by clicking on any field and then keying Alt-F1. But what if you have just switched to an... [More]
Hi Everyone, over the years we have found that troubleshooting ldapsync / vmmsync issues can be a bit confusing. I have found that creating a specific log file that only logs the sync information has been very helpful. This prevents you from sifting through the systemout.log to pick out the sync messages and errors. That can sometimes be like trying to find a needle in a hay stack. Follow the steps below to create a specific log ldapsync and vmmsync. Go to the Logging application. Go to select action drop down... [More]
It's currently October and for many people around the word, it means you have to reset your clocks. Some countries in the Southern Hemisphere like Australia and Brazil have already switched to summer time and Daylight Saving Time earlier this month. On the other hand, people in the Northern Hemisphere will soon switch to winter time and off Daylight Saving Time (October 25 for most of Europe and November 1 for North America). Maximo time might become out of whack if the Java ICU4J library is outdated in the Maximo Application... [More]
