Short Description:Need help troubleshooting integrations for CS-HCM? Want to see how to resolve some basic IB errors and syncing issues that may come up. Troubleshooting web services and data syncing issues.
Description:
Web services are increasingly being utilized to integrate data between and into PeopleSoft environments.   Troubleshooting web services requires a technical understanding of integration broker, as well as time and patience.  As the need for integrations continues to grow - especially with the CS-HCM split, resources and tools to help with resolving issues is expanding.  This session will cover methods for determining the source of the problem, common configuration oversights, and provide an overview for using monitors and utilities.  How can I search for errors within My Oracle Support and what are some common errors that may come up?
Learning Objectives :Attendees will gain an insight as to 1) ways to configure various settings to provide useful logs, 2) how to view error logs and monitors (along with examples), and 3) how the Integrity Utility can help monitor data to provide assurance that data is being synchronized properly between PeopleSoft Campus Solutions and PeopleSoft HCM databases. Common errors and searching within My Oracle Support effectively.

Peoplesoft Online Help - "PeopleBooks" updated - Campus Solutions

The updated Campus Solutions 9.0 Online Help and PDFs, up to and including Bundle 34 (July 2014) are now available.

Previously the HTML was known as “PeopleBooks” – it is now “Online Help”.  The new format (same as other PeopleSoft documentation) looks and functions more like a website than the previous book format structure.

Need the ability to Sync PSPSWDHISTORY record within CS and HR?

Here are some steps you can use to accomplish this.


1. Create a new custom message for the PSPSWDHISTORY record.  (Message will be created in both environments given Subscriber Only model)

2. Create Service and Service Operation – Both Environments
Using VERSION_1 for the Default Message.

3. Create routings in both directions

4. Create handler in both environments.

5. Handler code

class genericSyncSubscription implements PS_PT:Integration:INotificationHandler
method OnNotify(&_MSG As Message);
end-class;

method OnNotify
/+ &_MSG as Message +/
/+ Extends/implements PS_PT:Integration:INotificationHandler.OnNotify +/

Local HR_INTEGRATION:HR_Subscription &Async_Subscription;
&Async_Subscription = create HR_INTEGRATION:HR_Subscription();
&Async_Subscription.SetExecuteEdits( False);
&Async_Subscription.HR_Incr_Async();
