How can I see the asset status history in the Assets application?

Body

You may have noticed at some point in your life that in the Assets app you do not have access to the status history. Unless you have some IS installed, then you will be able to see it in the Asset (Tr) - Transpotation application, for example.

Have not you noticed that yet?   Ideia

Take a look at you Maximo version earlier than 7.5.0.9.... Did you see?

But do not worry, because from version 7.5.0.9, this has already been fixed and now you will be able to see it.

Oh, cannot you see it yet? Opa

Oh yeah ... I forgot ... you have to make some settings so you can see it. Bellow are the steps so you can enable the Asset's status history option:

1) From a database SQL tool:
SELECT FROM FROM SIGOPTFLAG WHERE OPTIONNAME='VIEWSTHIST' AND VALUE='CALIBRATION'

DELETE FROM SIGOPTFLAG WHERE OPTIONNAME='VIEWSTHIST' AND VALUE='CALIBRATION';
