Abstract

MIF object structure Child object key attributes not displayed

Body

Question:

I created a Maximo Integration Framework Object Structure with main object as WORKORDER and child object as WOACTIVITY. The WOACTIVITY has the key attributes SITEID and WONUM.

When generating this object structure Schema/View XML file, why these two fields are not included in the WOACTIVITY section?

 

Answer:

By default, the child object Key Attributes are automatically removed if the parent object has the same keys.

However, you can change this behavior.

In the Maximo Object Structures application - Select Action - Advanced Configuration

Uncheck the "Exclude Parent Key Attributes" option for this child object. This will make the child object key attributes are visible in the Schema/View XML file.
