Hello! While working with a client who was reporting that they could only see one application in the My Recent Applications List. After doing some research and found that there was a property added that controls how many applications can be displayed in this list. The property name is webclient.maxRecentApps The value specifies the number of apps in the My Recent Applications list. Set to 0 to disable the list. This change can be done without restarting the server by using the "Live Refresh" option.... [More]
Now that Maximo 7.6 has been released, we have access to new functionality that benefits a highly available environment. Cron task instances can now be load balanced across all servers that are allowed to run them. What does this mean? Let's say that you have four clusters (one each for MIF, UI, CRON and Reports). In each cluster you have two JVMs. In previous releases, the purpose of assigning multiple JVMs to the CRON cluster was to provide high availability in the event that one of the servers goes down or...

Last week I made a blog regarding logging data in Maximo using a Raspberry Pi. The point was to show how to enter data in Maximo with an IOT device using Node-Red. That got me thinking about using the Raspberry Pi to create a Work Order just in case something needed to be investigated or fixed. For example, if the temperature in a room rise above a certain degree, you might want to send someone out to have a look at the room. It's easy to use the REST API to create a Work Order but it's a little bit more complicated to approve it. To... [More]

The Display Date format will be decided in the following order: 1. According to the setting.DISPLAYDATE value in the System Properties application Goto System Configuration/ Platform Configuration/ System Properties and look for the setting.DISPLAYDATE property. ...

The path looks like this: applications\maximo\maximouiweb\webmodule\WEB-INF\web.xml, open the file in text editor and add the following text to web.xml: "<filter> <filter-name>ReportRequestFilter</filter-name>...

I was working through writing up some documentation on the detailed configuration of Push notifications for Maximo Anywhere 7.6.1 and I ran it to an issue where the previous senderID and API key I had generated for our release of Push Notifications for the Maximo Anywhere 7.6 ISM was no longer working. My notifications were going outbound to MobileFirst without issue, however when attempting to connect to Google Cloud Messaging I was receiving the following error in the MobileFirst logs.
