Is there a way to know how many records are affected by a status change?
Just a heads up, regarding this case where you would like to see a count of records that will be affected by status changes displayed when performing a status change, the standard Maximo functionality does offer the above in one scenario but not in all of them.
In Maximo 7 versions this is not included, as per product design, as the change status information comes from the class files, where you may not be able to modify the information.
When the information is coming from the mbo's, this will not be possible without the java customization. There is no documentation about this feature currently published.
However, as a workaround, in Maximo 7.6 , there is a system warning message: "BMXAA2185W - This action affects all XXX records in this result set."
This message will be displayed when you change status from List tab without using the Select Records checkbox.
