Error description

  • Customer reported that the wfassignment.duedate no longer
    populates date after the upgrade to 7.5.0.3 (from 7.5.0.2).
    
    As per client, in 7.5.0.2 and earlier, when a record is routed
    into
    Workflow and assigned to a Task Node where the task node has a
    time
    limit set; Maximo will populate the wfassignment.duedate with
    its due
    date (startdate + timelimit) for that active record. Since the
    7.5.0.3
    patch it appeared this functionality is no longer working.
    
    Steps in Maximo 7.5.0.2
    1) Create a simple Workorder Workflow with a Task Node and time
    limit
    2) Setup users with supervisors: (wilson > winston > cswilson) .
    Example:  CSWILSON is supervisor of WINSTON, which is supervisor
    of
    WILSON)
    3) Log in with wilson and create a simple Workorder. (wonum =
    1405)
    4) Click the Workflow icon and initiate workflow created in Step
    1
    5) Verify the Workflow is routed to wilson supervisor (winston),
    by
    going to Select Actions-> View Workflow Assignments
    6) On a SQL Tool, run the following SQL statement:
    
    select * from wfassignment where assignstatus = 'ACTIVE' and
    ownerid in
    (select workorderid from workorder where wonum = '1405');
    
    Note the Due date is populated on the wfassignment table.
    
    So, this is working as expected in 7.5.0.2
    
    
    
    (Exact same thing, but in 7.5.0.3)
    
    Steps in Maximo 7.5.0.3
    1) Create a simple Workorder Workflow with a Task Node and time
    limit
    2) Setup users with supervisors: (wilson > winston > cswilson) .
    Example:  CSWILSON is supervisor of WINSTON, which is supervisor
    of
    WILSON)
    3) Log in with wilson and create a simple Workorder. (wonum =
    1279)
    4) Click the Workflow icon and initiate workflow created in Step
    1
    5) Verify the Workflow is routed to wilson supervisor (winston),
    by
    going to Select Actions-> View Workflow Assignments
    6) On a SQL Tool, run the following SQL statement:
    
    select * from wfassignment where assignstatus = 'ACTIVE' and
    ownerid in
    (select workorderid from workorder where wonum = '1279');
    
    Note the Due date is NOT populated.
    
    So, this is NOT working as expected in 7.5.0.3
