Mobile version customize header

  • 1.  Mobile version customize header

    Posted 4 days ago
    Hello,

    I am making mobile application in Maximo. I want to change alignment these options(Start Center, Profile, SignOut) to the left. Here we see that we can change this here. Anybody know how to change this for my custom application?

    Those aren't configurable with the Maximo framework (you'd have to modify the underlying JSP file) and would impact all applications by default (though you could write some logic in the JSP to figure out what app you're on). I think the JSP you'd want to modify is titlebar.jsp in the applications\maximo\maximouiweb\webmodule\webclient\components directory.

    Just be aware that modifying core files like this is very problematic on patches (even potentially IFIXes) as your file may get overwritten and you may need to merge in changes IBM makes.

    IN addition to what Steven writes, you could also consider alternative application development approaches.  It is hard to tell from the screen shots but it appears you are on Maximo 7.6.1.x.  If so and if yo have entitlement to Maximo Anywhere, the Service Request application was built off of the Create SR application design.  So any modifications that are necessary for your use case may very well be easier to implement, since the app is already built and you should be able to readily configure/ customize it.   All depending on your entitlements though. Hope this helps.

    Adding to Steven and Bradley's point. I believe you are trying the Maximo's mobile web page modification that means you would have a requirement that users are not willing to install a mobile app. If that is the case then try to use Service Request Work Center. The UI is much more responsive than maximo and a lot of things are configurable.
    Also, totally my point of view, customising Work Centers is easier than Maximo's core functionality. Code merge is similar to Anywhere code merge during upgrades or ifixes. Please note, one problem with work center customization is we dont know if the IBM will continue to use the underlying java script library for future release( currently work center uses polymer js).

    My understanding is that:
    • IBM are moving away from the Polymer library possibly because Google stopped developing it.
    • IBM are using their Carbon system combined with the React framework:

    https://www.carbondesignsystem.com/all-about-carbon/what-is-carbon/?_ga=2.116283078.1336590147.1626593167-1929669698.1622454850

    Here is a reference to the Carbon/React system being used in a Maximo related solution:
    https://developer.ibm.com/blogs/maximo-asset-monitor-ai-powered-remote-monitoring-at-enterprise-scale/

    The existing polymer work centres are quite complex so I expect it will take some time before the Polymer based work centres are replaced.

    Mark is correct. This has already been done for Inspections and Work Execution for Maximo Mobile. These apps are also available in the standard Maximo application like work centers and this will be the new platform. One big advantage of this over the old process is the framework for the apps. This provides a much better way to extend the applications than what exists today with Work Centers. Extending these apps is similar to the process for extending Anywhere (modifying XML file, writing some javascript, etc.). As the framework develops, I expect these to get built quicker but it will take some time to replace all of the existing applications.

    The other thing to be aware of is that at least today, you need to transition to Maximo Application Suite licensing to get access to Maximo Mobile which is the only way to get the new applications. You can install Maximo Mobile on a 7.6.1.2 environment, so you don't necessarily need to adopt the entire suite and technology platform transition to OpenShift, but would need to switch licensing.
