The j5 Maximo interface queries Maximo for Assets using a SOAP web service exposed by Maximo. The WSDL URL of this web service is captured in the Asset WSDL URL field. If a SOAP service is configured off the default Asset object (MXASSET), then the WSDL URL will be as follows: http://<server name>:<port name>/meaweb/services/MXASSET?wsdl

The Asset Service URL is the URL j5 calls when calling the query operation in the WSDL. This Service URL is usually defined in the WSDL but Maximo can be configured to expose a different URL hence why this is a separate configuration point. If a SOAP service is configured off the default Asset object (MXASSET), then the service URL will be as follows: http://<server name>:<port name>/meaweb/services/MXASSET

Read more about how to find the Service URL for a web service in the section on Finding the Service URL for a web service.

The Asset Operation is the common text in the web service operations on the WSDL for querying assets. For example, if the web service operations are "CreateMXASSET", "DeleteMXASSET", "QueryMXASSET" etc, then Asset Operation is "MXASSET".

The SOAP identifier for Asset Set is the SOAP element that contains the list of assets, for example MXASSETSet.

The SOAP identifier for Asset Tag is the SOAP element that contains an individual asset, for example ASSET.

The Asset Identifier is the unique identifier of an asset in the Maximo table. It is important that this field is a unique integer as it is used to iterate through the data set of assets during a full synchronization. This field is also used as the unique identifier of equipment in the j5 Asset Register.

Asset Filter is a filter condition that allows the interface to exclude a subset of assets from the synchronization. This is of the form of a SQL WHERE clause. For example, FIELDX IS NOT NULL

SQL query to fetch the Asset record with the maximum ID is used by the batch processing during the full synchronization with Maximo to identify the maximum of the Asset Identifier. This maximum bounds the j5 synchronization in order to identify when the operation is complete.

Asset Date Changed Field is the field on the asset that identifies the last date and time that the asset was modified in Maximo. This is used to identify the change set during the incremental synchronization.
