Work Order Settings
|Enable third party application||Checking this value enables integration with your organizations own work order management system and tells OpenUtilities Substation to make use of the data exchange database and table that you specifiy in the Database Name and Mapping table. (See below)|
|Application name||Enter the name of your organization's work order management system (i.e. SAP). The software will use this name when displaying specific warning messages that might occur when using this integration.|
|Use active project database server connection||Enable this option to use the current project database server. When using this database you will need to setup a data exchange table (such as the default SubstationDataExchange table) to migrate your work orders from your work order management system. A unique script (developed possibly by the project administrator) needs to be executed to migrate the work orders from the SAP database to this table.|
|Use other database server connection||If you have existing work order stored on another database server, then enable this option. This will enable the Connect to Server button which will let you select the database server where the work orders are located.|
|Database Name||This is the name of a SQL server database that will be used to exchange work order records between your organization’s work order management system such as SAP and OpenUtilities Substation . It acts as an intermediary database between the two systems.|
|Mapping Table||This is the name of the table you wish to export your organization's work order records to. This would be a table inside of the SQL Server Database that you defined in the <DatabaseName> parameter above.|
|Mapping data||You can define any fields you desire in your
<Mapping Table> for storing Work Orders and then map these fields the
fields in the project database's LCM_WorkOrder table. This determines what
fields appear in the
Work Order Manager and the
New Work Order dialog.
