Inspection form can't retrieve Meters

  • 1.  Inspection form can't retrieve Meters

    Posted 16 days ago
    HI All,
    I'm attempting to create a new Inspection form including a Meter reading.  When I go to select the meter, it can't find any records.  I have verified the meter is in the Meters group and active.  I have also looked the the API objects associated to Meters and made sure they were flagged for Flat File.  Also checked security Groups and objects.  It looks OK, but I may be missing something.  Any Ideas?   Thanks

    One thing to check would be around the Security Group authorization to the necessary Object Structures for these Work Center applications.

    The best way to do this would be to go to the Security Groups application and locate a group that should have access to the Manage Inspection Forms application. From there, navigate to the Applications tab and filter for the Manage Inspection Forms application. Click the Manage/Apply Template button above the general options for the Manage Inspection Forms application. In the ensuing dialog, the Security Template Authorizations table is collapsed by default. Maximize that table, and you should be able to click on the Object Structures Authorizations tab. There you will see the list of Object Structures that need to be enabled for the Manage Inspection Forms application to work fully.

    Thanks Alex, that helped.  I can select the meter in the form now, but when I go to do the inspection, I'm getting an error the meter is not available in the selected asset or location..

    Try following similar steps for the Conduct Inspection application. There are several more Object Structures that need to be granted for that application over the Manage Inspection Forms application. My guess would be that you're missing the MXAPIASSETMETER Object Structure permissions.
