Where are the upgrade templates?

Something New with PT 8.55 - the templates, now called change packages, are generated by Change Assistant.


As of PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.55, the application upgrade template is delivered within the most current Update Image. You must generate the

template out of the most current update image since the upgrade template can only be downloaded via the upgrade package.

You will need to define your upgrade packages and create your upgrade template before performing your application upgrade in Change Assistant.


As of PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.55, only upgrade documentation is delivered on the upgrade home page.

All other upgrade files are delivered on the CD or updated through fixes.


Note:  While you need to generate your upgrade template from the most current update image, you can ONLY upgrade to the certified update image, in this case, it is HCM 9.2.016.


Where is the documentation that describes this process?

See the Upgrade Home Page, PeopleSoft Human Capital Management Upgrade Home Page (Doc ID 1959519.2), section Upgrade Packages, and download

the doc titled Getting Started on Your PeopleSoft Upgrade -- 8.55.
