Today, I'm going to go over step by step installing a Maximo 7.6 Feature Pack. It is very similar to the process for installing Interim Fixes, which I documented at Installing an Interim Fix in Maximo 7.6 . I thought that a post dedicated solely to Feature Pack installation would be useful. Feature Pack releases differ from older Fix Pack releases in that, in addition to bug fixes and compatibility notices, new functionality may be added. See Maximo 7.6 Maintenance Delivery Strategy for more... [More]

Using MessageSight you might want to use the syslog forwarding feature in order to centralize your logs and create alerts/incidents based on them. Before using this feature you need to know how syslog packets are sent and what format is being used. The syslog packets are sent to a process on the appliance that is forwarding the messages externally. This process is using syslog-ng format as described in RFC 6587. You can check the format on below link: Transmission of Syslog Messages over TCP https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6587 One... [More]

A few weeks ago I entered a blog about getting data from Maximo using the REST API, Maximo, IoT and REST. This blog will continue on with the REST example and show you one example on how to enter data into Maximo. For example, if you had a large tank and wanted to know the water level you could use a BeagleBone to read the water level and report it to Maximo. Imagine you have your BeagleBone Black setup to read a potentiometer that had an arm attached to a floating device in the tank. The potentiometer is now reading the angle of... [More]
Have you ever wanted an escalation to run every day but not on weekends? Maximo 7.5 supports using a calendar-based schedule for escalations . There are 2 fields (Calendar and Shift) that have been added to the Escalation Point section in the application for this purpose. In the Calendar Organization, the Calendar and Shift fields specify values to limit when the escalation is run. The Calendar and Shift fields specify the days and times for which the escalation is valid. If you set up a calendar to be only Monday to Friday and then... [More]
