Ever run into an issue where your users want to search in a module but they can’t.

If you run into this issue you might be able to check the search type of the attribute they are wanting to filter on check out the IBM document on how to update this.

 

http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21999428

As an example REPORTEDPRIORITY attribute is Read Only in SR Object. And if you want to update the attribute of REPORTEDPRIORITY to WILDCARD.

Back up your Database. Login to your Database as maximo user. Run update as below.

update maxattribute set searchtype = ‘WILDCARD’ where objectname=’SR’
and attributename=’REPORTEDPRIORITY’

update maxattributecfg set searchtype = ‘WILDCARD’ where
objectname=’SR’ and attributename=’REPORTEDPRIORITY’

After updating the database you need to stop the application server and re-start.

The search Type will be updated to WILDCARD

Label Text Properties

There is a property – ‘labelcss’ – that is not exposed on the Control Properties dialog for any control but can be used by entering it directly in the xml or in a conditional configuration. It can be applied to any control with a ‘label’ property. Multiple valid values can be entered separated by spaces for example ‘txtred txtbold’ to make the text red and bold. Because fo the nature of css files, all values may not render at run time based on how the properties are set in the other css files that cascade to drive the control behavior.

Valid values for labelcss property :

txtred

txtgreen

txtdarkgreen

txtblue

txtdarkblue

txtmaroon

txtpurple

txtorange

txtyellow

txtgray

txtbold                                   bold text

txtitalic                                  italic text

txtstrike                                 strike through text

txtuppercase                         UPPER CASE TEXT

txtlowercase                         lower case text

Why Wont my Signature Option fire off on Multiple Assets,Locations and CIs ?

There is a simple fix for this.

Select the Table Properties and move on over to the advanced tab.

You can use the Sig Option Data Source ID :  by setting the value to MAINRECORD as seen in an example below.

Example of where you will find the Sig Option Data Source ID

 

According to the IBM Article http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21620229

 Sigoption needs an Mbo to be evaluated against. When a sigoption is placed on a table, it will use the table’s ‘Data Source ID’ to evaluate the sigoption if there is no ‘Sig Option Data Source ID’ defined. Thus, if the table does not have any record, there will be no Mbo to evaluate the sigoption against resulting in the table not being displayed.
