Error description

  • ACM issue. We are able to enter meter reading even if the asset
    has the
    status to DECOMMISSIONED
    
    Environment :
    
    Base Services - 71110
    ACM 7112
    Transportation 7111
    
    Problem Details:
    
    1. Go To Assets (CM) application. Select an asset that has a
    status of
    DECOMMISSIONED.  In our example, the ?Moved? checkbox is also
    ticked
    
    2. From the Select Action menu, choose ?Enter Meter Readings?.
    You are
    not able to add meter reading. This is making sense since the
    asset is
    decommissioned.
    
    3. But, if you go to the View tab and in the Direct sub tab.
    You click
    on the ?New Row? button, you are able to add meter reading. This
    is not
    aligned with the business rules of the Base Maximo.
    
    Therefore we suspect an issue within the Asset Configuration
    Manager
    (ACM) industry solution.
    
    
    Note from ACM L3:
    ===
    Please raise an APAR and we will address via a hotfix.
