  • 1.  Displaying department specific values in ALN domain for single site

    Posted Wed June 01, 2022 10:34 AM
    Hi Guys,
    We are using one site for all of our departments.
    For the departments, we have introduced a DEPTID field, as a replacement of SITEID.
    Now the requirement has come to display department specific values in ALN domain.
    Since we are not using Site, so how we can achieve the same?
    Please guide

    thanks in Advance

    There are many customers who have a similar situation where the idea of SITE was introduced and rejected for many good and valid reasons.  When it comes time to start using DEPT specific values from DOMAINS and the like, now to essentially reintroduce built-in capabilities with SITEID, is often addressed with Conditional Expressions, Automation scripts, and sometimes added attributes. Depending on the cost involved and how far down the path you are using Maximo, you may want to weigh the cost of redeveloping this functionality vs. re-implemeting using sites.  This is not trivial.

    Should you decide to build this functionality start with a Design-Thinking Session and ensure that all of the functionality you want is identified and documented. This will help consolidate some of the functions you want into reusable code in your automation scripts.  Insofar as the specific capabilities with ALN Domain, there is oaf cause a SITEID column, which allows you to enable specific values for any given site.  If you want to create a new column for DEPT (or whatever your attribute is named,) then you could do so and introduce the necessary code to allow you to enter the data, and use it in the vairous dialog boxes, screens, lookup etc. that are scattered all over Maximo.  This is certainly do-able and with Automation scripts you can certainly accomplish all of this.

    Hope this helps
