When Maximo 7.6 came out, the yellow background color on required fields was, unfortunately for many users, abandoned. Luckily changing this back is actually a pretty simple task. First, determine what skin you are using. The skin name can be found in the following system property: mxe.webclient.skin. In this example our skin name is tivoli13, […]
Recommended System Specifications (Non-Clustered Environment) – Maximo 7.6 Hardware is the backbone of any Maximo installation. That’s why understanding what the minimum standards for any system are is so important. Without this understanding you could undershoot them and have an incredibly poorly performing system or you could greatly overshoot them and waste resources. In this post, I have […]
Recommended System Specifications (Clustered Environment) – Maximo 7.6 Deciding on the correct hardware for a clustered Maximo environment can be a challenging task. Not all servers in a clustered environment serve the same function, nor are they subject to the same hardware load. This often creates some confusion, as hardware choice is server-type specific. Additionally, […]
The concept of EVERYONE group was introduced in Maximo v7. This brought a whole host of functionality changes which are described in detail here. Luckily though, it only brought with it one new configuration option. The ability to change what group is treated as the EVERYONE group. The reasons you would want to do this are fairly limited. They are almost entirely limited to the desire to use the group name EVERYONE for another purpose in Maximo.

Most often, issues with security groups can be chalked up to a logical error. However, in newer versions of Maximo security access issues […]

In previous versions of Maximo, it was near impossible to track licensing usage without performing a complicated audit of user rights and tracking Maximo user sessions. Fortunately, these days are long behind us with the addition of a new Administrative application that is now being included […]
Can you see two Workflow Designer tabs in Maximo? Something you may have noticed since upgrading past Maximo 22.214.171.124 is that there are two Workflow Designer “Canvas” tabs. At first glance, this looks like the first sign of Maximo becoming unhinged. However, two canvas tabs exist intentionally but only one should be visible. Starting in […]
Different Skins in IBM Maximo It’s that time again. End of support for another Maximo version. With that comes a lot of upgrades, a lot of training and in some cases, people missing the old look of Maximo. To make the transition easier, IBM has provided a way for users to choose between three different […]
In this video, the professionals at Ontracks Consulting step through the navigational differences between Maximo 7.5 and the newest version Maximo 7.6.
I have had many opportunities over the past year and a half to explore, test, upgrade and assess every aspect of IBM’s latest release of Maximo version 7.6. Maximo version 7.6 (released in December 2014) is by far the most functionally rich and technically advanced Maximo release ever. And we have to say; it’s not […]
