  • 1.  Change GL account to be not required on reservation page

    Posted Sun March 21, 2021 11:14 PM
    Hi,
    Got requirement from client to change GL account to be not required field on add/modify reservation popup. Look into library.xml and find the section of add/modify reservation, but cannot figure out the way to modify GL account field to be not required field in the library.xml. Tried other way to create automation script to change GLACCOUNT_required=False, but it doesn't work. Looks like the required fields logic on add/modify reservation dialog is control inside the logc of java class "psdi.webclient.beans.inventory.InvReserveDataBean". Is it any other way I can change required field to be not required on add/modify reservation dialog?
    Thanks!
    Best Regards,
    Jacky Qiu

    I feel like it should be easier and MUCH safer to default the GL to something meaningless (a set of dummy values like all 0's) rather than make it not required. There is potential for business logic later in the process that will fail hard if you nave a null value in there.

    Hi Tim,
    Thanks for your response! Yes, that's the current tactical solution we proposed to client right now. But really interested in whether any easy way in Maximo to change it. I pretty sure this field is not required for other reservation is converted from material requisition.
