Is it possible to configure Maximo attributes using MXLoader? The answer is YES.

Thanks to Bruno Portlauri for the new MXLoader v6.1. In this update, new sheets for System Configuration has been included.  These features will be very helpful while migrating data between two different databases or two different Maximo environments.

We are going to add a custom attribute C_COMMENTS to WORKORDER object. Here are the steps:

Step 1 : Download MXLoader v6.1 here.

Step 2 : Open “System – Database Attributes” from MxLoader Templates.

        

Step 3 : Fill up the necessary columns to add C_COMMENTS attribute.

MAXATTRIBUTECFG.SEARCHTYPE

NONE

MAXATTRIBUTECFG.LOCALIZABLE

 Step 4: Run MxRunAction  as Sync-AddChange.

 

  Is it done? No. We have one final Step to perform.

         After adding attribute through MxLoader, the Database Configuration looks as below,

 Step 5: We must complete Database Configuration in Maximo. So, click on “Apply Configuration Changes”.

Now, we would be able to see the new custom attribute C_COMMENTS available in the WORKORDER object
