Changing the upper left icon for an application in Maximo

Technote (FAQ)


How can I change the icon that appears in the top left of an application in Maximo.


The icon that appears in the top left side of an application is referenced in the MAXMENU table.

For the WOTRACK application the IMAGE value in the MAXMENU table is appimg_wotrack.gif

If you were to clone WOTRACK and create an application called WOCLONE, after you duplicate the application, you will see the application has a generic image and if you reference the maxmenu table for the WOCLONE application you will see that there is no image reference for the cloned application.

In this example we want the original icon associated to the WOTRACK application to appear for our cloned wotrack application called WOCLONE.

You will need to manually update the image column of the maxmenu application.

UPDATE MAXMENU SET IMAGE='appimg_wotrack.gif' where keyvalue='WOCLONE';

After committing the update you will need to restart the Maximo application server for the change to take effect.
