Setting a Default Filter Where Clause for a Maximo Application

Question & Answer


The purpose of this document is to provide steps on setting up a default filter on Maximo application records in App Designer.


The following steps will help you set up a filter using a where clause in App Designer that will filter the initial records returned in a Maximo application.
Keep in mind this is not an Application Restriction but a default filter.
Being that this is only a filter, you will be able to re-query using the Advanced Search or Quick Find and get around the where clause parameters.
This may be useful if the majority of time you want a certain setting but sometimes you still want to be able query the other records.

Launch App Designer.
Select an application such as WOTRACK.
From the Select Action menu select Toggle/Show All Controls
Select the presentation link so that the presentation highlights in green.
Select Control Properties.
In the Where Clause property enter a value such as: TYPE = ‘PM’
