New in Maximo 7.6.0.5: API_File Cron Task

Body

Ever wonder what the API_FILE Cron task is? If yes, then I can give a bit of information about this specific Cron task.

 

The API_File is an out of the box Cron task which was introduced in Maximo 7.6.0.5 together with the new Work Center. You can learn more about the Maximo Work Center here. The API_File Cron task is used for exporting Data Set to Watson in the Business Analyst Work Center.

 

Here's how the API_File Cron task looks like in the Cron Task Setup application:

SYSTEMOUT.LOG ERROR:

 

BMXAA6359E - A runtime error for host API_FILE.api_file:null occurred. Increase the amount of memory that is available to the Java Virtual Machine (JVM).

 

If you are encountering the error above in your Maximo server logs (systemOut.log) and you are not using the Maximo Work Center, then you can just disable the API_File Cron task to make the error go away.

 

That would be all. Thanks for reading!
