Abstract

Limiting the number of queries that display on the Side Navigation Bar in Maximo 7.6

Body

Starting in Maximo 7.6 there is a System Property that determines the maximum number of queries that display under "Available Queries"

in the side navigation bar. This property is called mxe.webclient.maxNavbarQueryLimit and is set to 20 (maximum number of queries that

will be shown) by default on both a fresh install and on an upgraded instance. This property was included in order to keep the page

displaying quickly and prevent the user from having to do a lot of vertical scrolling should there be a lot of queries.

To change the value go to System Configuration, Platform Configuration, System Properties. Then filter for the

mxe.webclient.maxNavbarQueryLimit  property value, change the global value, and save. Lastly select the check box beside the property

and then click on "Live Refresh".  With the property value set to 20 and the number of queries for this application less than 20, all of the

Available Queries will display and it will look similar to the image below:

With the property value set to 3 and the number of queries for this application greater than 3, only the first 3 queries will show under

Available Queries and it will look similar to image below with a link to "View More Queries":
