Synonym for Work Order Status

Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem(Abstract)

Status Change to Synonym of Internal Status

Symptom

We have a synonym, DEFERRED, for the workorder status CLOSE. If a workorder is already in a CLOSE status, we don't want the workorder to be able to be changed to DEFERRED. This is a problem when the inherit status change flag is set.

Resolving the problem

The following can be used as a workaround:

1. create a conditional expression
status ='CLOSE' and
custom('psdi.common.parse.InternalValue','WOSTATUS', :status) = 'DEFERRED'


2. go to domains application
bring up wostatus domain
click view / modify conditions
click New Row button to Create a new condition attach woclose condition to WOSTATUS|DEFERRED valueID
