How can I connect MAXIMO Application to SharePoint?

    Question

  • How can I connect MAXIMO Application to SharePoint? I wanted to integrate MAXIMO to SharePoint that, whenever I click a field in MAXIMO will export all data into a word document and stored it in ShaerPoint. I wanted to use SharePoint as my DMS. I hope someone will give answer for this. Thank you.

  • Hello Brooke,

    Can u provide more details on Maximo application  & what  do u mean by connecting to share point ?  how do you intend to export  data to SharePoint ? How does this need to show up in SharePoint ?

     

    If you just need to copy the  word file  onto a SharePoint list ,  Explorer view can be used .  Here is a blog which explains Explorer View  http://blogs.technet.com/b/manjesh/archive/2010/01/03/all-about-explorer-view-in-sharepoint.aspx . Once you get us the details we will be able to better understand the issue. Thanks Manas

  • Hello,

    I am also looking at solutions that would integrate Maximo with Sharepoint.  If we were to save an attachment using Maximo functionality, but instead have that attachment be stored in a Sharepoint list so we can take advantage of our Sharepoint expertise and Sharepoint Archiving strategy, is this possible?

    Thank you,

    What we are trying to do is to use the Maximo application to receive a reference to a local user file then, using a set of credentials mapped to the Maximo application, "save" the file into a SharePoint document library. We should be able to provide a human readable description to go along with the actual file name.

    This should be a user transparent operation. Consider this an exercise in SOAP or REST communications. The idea is to have a one-way-street for the attachment. Once attached, it is a historical document that should never be edited again.

    The current method is to save the document in SharePoint, then reference the file as a URL in Maximo. All files are attached to a Maximo record as a URL, where normally the repository is located behind the Apache Web Server, and the upload is transparent. If a second file with the same name and description are uploaded, the system appends a unique hex value to make it separate without over writing the original file.

    I hope this helps.
