Lacey,I am back on this topic now and have learned a lot since November of last year. But now we are looking at using the SA while integrated with ArcGIS. We are wanting to consider using the OOTB fields on the SA (LONGITUDEX & LATITUDEY). I fully understand now that a once an object in linked to a map feature it has the spatial representation by way of that map feature.
But if we want the X/Y of our ASSETR as it comes in from GIS how can we do that at the same time rather than as 2 separate interfaces using the (ARCGISASSET, ARCGISSRVAD Enterprise Services)?
Can we modify the ARCGISASSET Object Structure to include the Service Address or better yet create our own clone of that and then replace the OS on the ES that does ARCGISASSET? Or any other method to have Maximo sync the ASSET and the X/Y of it in the same integration as it seems that the data should be readily available as the ASSET is passed over and not need to be done as 2 separate integrations (which is overkill in my mind for 2 fields). Anything I am missing here?
Also, if we set the "Use an external or GIS address system" in the Org settings that does not help in this process telling Maximo we want the X/Y coming from GIS for SA in Maximo?
