Force users to refresh lookup data?

    Anywhere 7.6.4:

    If I make significant/urgent changes to my data in Maximo, is there a way to force users to refresh their lookup data (if needed)?

    Thanks.

    There is no force refresh. There is a mechanism that looks at the changes.

    It would be better off to let them know via a communication to refresh the lookup data.

    As long as they are connected the updates will come across and usually without user intervention.

    How soon after update is the new data needed and what is the nature as that may dictate your strategy.

    Depending on the use case, if it's a small set of data that is critical to the operation of the app you can define the resource as system (isSystem="true") and it will be refreshed on each login. If it's larger datasets (such as ASSET) then Craig is correct that you should just let them know to refresh.
