Error description

  • Reproduced on maxdemo 7.5.0.10
    
    Go to Intgration > Web Services Library
    Create webservice based on MXASSET object structure
    
    Use SOAP UI and this xml to create the Asset.
    Also reproduced using Data Import.
    
    XML:
    <soapenv:Envelope
    xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"
    xmlns:max="http://www.ibm.com/maximo">
       <soapenv:Header/>
       <soapenv:Body>
          <max:SyncMXASSET>
             <max:MXASSETSet>
                <!--Zero or more repetitions:-->
                <max:ASSET action="AddChange">
                   <max:ASSETNUM>PF1001</max:ASSETNUM>
                   <max:SITEID>BEDFORD</max:SITEID>
                   <max:ORGID>EAGLENA</max:ORGID>
                  <max:HIERARCHYPATH>BREAKER</max:HIERARCHYPATH>
              <max:ASSETSPEC>
                      <max:ALNVALUE>testtype7878</max:ALNVALUE>
                      <max:ASSETATTRID>TYPE</max:ASSETATTRID>
                       <max:SECTION></max:SECTION>
    <max:LINEARASSETSPECID>0</max:LINEARASSETSPECID>
                   </max:ASSETSPEC>
           <max:ASSETSPEC>
                      <max:NUMVALUE>98</max:NUMVALUE>
                       <max:ASSETATTRID>CAPACITY</max:ASSETATTRID>
                       <max:SECTION></max:SECTION>
    <max:LINEARASSETSPECID>0</max:LINEARASSETSPECID>
                   </max:ASSETSPEC>
                </max:ASSET>
             </max:MXASSETSet>
          </max:SyncMXASSET>
       </soapenv:Body>
    </soapenv:Envelope>
    
    Then, remove this section of XML and send:
    <max:ASSETSPEC>
                      <max:NUMVALUE>99</max:NUMVALUE>
                       <max:ASSETATTRID>CAPACITY</max:ASSETATTRID>
                       <max:SECTION></max:SECTION>
                   <max:LINEARASSETSPECID>0</max:LINEARASSETSPECID>
                   </max:ASSETSPEC>
    
    Check the asset description in Maximo - the value is changed to
    99.0000000000
    It should be 99

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:                                              *
    * Users who use the MIF import of Asset Specifications.        *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * Thru MIF import, the description is generated with trailing  *
    * zeros when the specifications have numeric values. This does *
    * not happen using Maximo UI.                                  *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    * none                                                         *
