Yeah unfortunately this isn't possible. Since the classic Maximo UI executes a SQL filter to search, it has to be persistent to enable searching. For hierarchypath, we created a view in our system that builds this path out so we could use it for reporting and other purposes. With the new work centers ...

Yeah, there are a lot of ideas in this space. All with pros and cons that make it difficult to state what should be done. The short term decision the community has decided (as many people have done, including us, Bowser, and many others) to go the custom app with scripts to change editability rules and ...

Craig is spot on. The one I could think of that he missed was Calibration is functionality inside Nuclear & Life Sciences (which is really just Calibration with validation scripts) that is also supported inside of the standard Work Execution application. It's not Nuclear specific, but I felt since ...

OSLC (typically Maximo Anywhere calls) operates with the concept of namespaces, some of which start with jazz.net. If you go to the OSLC Resources application and open the lookup for the Namespace URI you can see a bunch of these examples (including open-services.net, purl.org, etc.). You can basically ...

This has long been a pain in Maximo. I submitted a RFE many years ago (https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/rfe/execute?use_case=viewRfe&CR_ID=36979) to better support changing these as simply changing the owner will break other things in Maximo. In the interim, we've created a custom application to ...

In the Advanced Search dialog of the Security Groups application there is an Application & Option search field in Access Information. With these two together you would be able to find that information. Any groups returned would have that permission. That's really the only UI out of the box that I ...

You can create a custom attribute on job plan and then cross it over to WO. But you'll have to decide which one you want to win when you get into the PM scenario where you could have discrepancy between the PM and JOBPLAN. Most of the time when we've done something like this for customers, they wanted ...

Biplap is correct. There is special logic that occurs in bulk actions like status changes to handle it failing on some while processing successfully on others. Normally a transaction all succeeds or fails which is (typically) what you don't want in a bulk action where some succeeding is OK. There's a ...

This is an interesting idea (defining something like &FIRSTNAME&) that isn't possible today. You could link to a child object that has the value you want (which could be a non-persistent that gets populated via script) but I could see a few use cases where this would be nice. Especially since ...

Any time you have : syntax in a relationship (IE :wonum), Maximo is going to replace this with a literal value (IE '1001'). Going through a relationship will still function the same way, but will only return the first record returned from the relationship (if it's 1:M). It does this by grabbing the in-memory ...

Not extremely important to the conversation but I'm not sure how you suppress the canDelete method with code which is where this error is thrown. You could delete it via other ways (such as SQL) but then you need to make sure you purge all the other objects too (such as CLASSSPECUSEWITH). Also, as Mark ...

I don't believe there is a variable for this today. The purpose of formulas was related to mathematical calculations for attributes with Excel like functions. The current date/time makes sense as there are a lot of scenarios where you would need to calculate the time difference between two dates. From ...

It's not a configuration option and I think would be significantly involved to implement. What I would suggest is ignoring email interaction entirely if you want to use buttons and just send a communication that has the buttons you need. From there you would have to come up with a design depending on ...

Try something like below. I haven't done a lot of testing on it, but at a glance it looks good against our system. WITH location_hier(location,siteid,parent,systemid,locpath) AS ( SELECT location,siteid,parent,systemid,cast(location as varchar(1024)) as locpath FROM lochierarchy WHERE parent is null ...

A DBC file is how IBM applies changes during patches. Each product (such as Maximo, Service Provider, etc.) has a dedicated folder of files. These files are a combination of DBC files (which are XML documents), SQL files (though rare), java classes (for more complicated processing that can't be done ...

So there is the "as it is" and "as it will be" to this discussion. What I mean by that is until 7.6.1.2, you are correct that it utilizes a report to execute the rollup. I believe in the Maximo Application Suite for Manage, they have transitioned this to the new process they've been working on. This ...

Christiaan and Mark's responses are good that it won't really give you what you're exactly looking for. I wanted to add though that it can in certain scenarios function like a changedate column when you're trying to identify records that have changed. If you're trying to perform a simple delta sync of ...

No, it's currently all concurrent (including admins). You can reserve points for specific users to ensure they're able to login but it just removes those points from the overall pool. That being said, IBM is listening for this type of feedback. If this is important to you I would discuss with your IBM ...

Yes, you can have some users who use Azure AD and some in Ping Identity (or any other Identity Provider). Just be aware that both providers could login with the same user. IE if you have a MAXADMIN in both providers and launch into Maximo, both will be allowed. There is no restricting user A to Azure ...

There are a lot of products that are used for monitoring applications. So many that I wouldn't feel comfortable making a suggestion of what to utilize. The product I would suggest for alerting, however, is PagerDuty (https://www.pagerduty.com/). We have multiple on call rotations (infrastructure, networking, ...
