  • 1.  Publish Channel to Extract Vendor Records When Modified

    Posted 06-24-2021 10:05

    We have a Publish Channel set up to extract vendor record(s) when they have been modified in Maximo. This extracted file is then used to integrate the modified data into our financial system, keeping the data synchronized in both systems. Everything works properly when a person modifies a vendor record one at a time. However, if we use MIF to update many records at one time within Maximo, the Publish Channel is never triggered to create the extraction files, even though the record(s) have changed via MIF.

    Is there a way to configure the Publish Channel to trigger rather the change was made by an end-user or a Maximo user (mxintadm)?

    By the way, we are currently using

    Thank you in advance for any assistance provided.

    The easiest approach if you want the publish channel to fire even on imports is to define an event filter on the publish channel (which can be done with an automation script). By default, it assumes if the record is being modified by the MIF that you wouldn't want it to generate an outbound transaction. But with an event filter script you could just set evalresult=False and it will cause the publish channel to still fire.
