    Hi Everyone,

    We are trying to add new fields on search work order menu and its working fine. but its doing a completed Maximo server search and taking enough time as server has more than 1 million work orders .

    is it possible to restrict search functionality limited to local app data ?

    Searching of lookups (such as Asset) happens on the device but the WO search hits the Maximo server in Maximo Anywhere. I'm sure it could be done with customization but I'm not sure what it would take to do.

    I'm not sure if you are planning to switch to the new mobile product (Maximo Mobile), but it does a local search when searching on the work order list.

    Hi Rahul,

    I also had an issue with the performance of the search when I added some custom fields to the Search screen.
    I managed to optimize the search by making sure that the where clause is using indexes.

    Considering that Anywhere app is in your control it should be easy to identify what indexes are required.
    Please note that 2 methods should be modified to support your custom fields:
    setSearchQuery - validation method
    - populateSearch - main method

    Also I found that I had to change a default filter (istask: false) to

    var filter = {istask: false, historyflag: false, siteid: siteID};
    That was the main improver of the response time.
