Differentiate Maximo production, test, development environments

A common need is to differentiate Maximo production, test, development environments.
The easiest technique I know is to customize the login and header messages.
Open Database Administration application and select the Messages action. Search for 'welcome' and change the messages in the 'login' group as you wish.



The welcome message is displayed on the login page, the welcomeusername message is displayed in the upper left corner of the start center main page, the welcomemaximomessage ... I don't know :-)

If you want to automate the procedure you can use the following database updates.

update MAXMESSAGES set VALUE='Welcome to Maximo (TEST)'      where MSGKEY='welcome';
update MAXMESSAGES set VALUE='Welcome to Maximo (TEST), {0}' where MSGKEY='welcomeusername';
update L_MAXMESSAGES set VALUE='Welcome to Maximo (TEST)'      where ownerid=(select maxmessagesid from MAXMESSAGES where MSGKEY='welcome');
update L_MAXMESSAGES set VALUE='Welcome to Maximo (TEST), {0}' where ownerid=(select maxmessagesid from MAXMESSAGES where MSGKEY='welcomeusername');


If you wish to change tho logo and other elements of the login page you can look here.

  1. Thanks for sharing.
    Same can be done from Application Front End as well by using:
    Database Configuration Application >> Select Options >> Messages

    Filter on Message Key field with 'welcome' and you can update the same.
