Campus Solutions Bundle 42 has been posted to My Oracle Support, and the corresponding Master Note for this bundle is also now available.

 

If you follow the link to the recently posted Campus Solutions CS 9 Bundle #42 - Master Note for Questions or Problems with Patchset 21385031 (https://support.oracle.com/epmos/faces/DocumentDisplay?id=2128036.1Doc ID 2160024.1) you will find a great deal of reference material and a long list of “no problems found” entries.  While we hope that we never find any problems to list in this document, you can alleviate a lot of headaches stemming from the application of this recently posted bundle by reviewing this master note during your planning phase.

 

The intention of a Master Note for a Campus Solutions Bundle is to provide you with information regarding problems or issues with the application of the bundle, including any functional issues that have been reported and believed to be the result of applying this bundle.  In the Master Note, you will find sections for:

 

  • General Information on documentation, policy and the contents of the bundle
  • Problems applying the bundle, which will be continuously updated for any issues reported to Support
  • Functional problems attributed to this bundle in any of the Campus Solutions products

 

Before you apply this bundle, please review this master note and bookmark (by clicking the hollow yellow star next to the document title) it so that you can quickly revisit it during your planning and implementation phases.  If you are planning to apply any other bundles to your Campus Solutions product, please be sure to review the corresponding master notes, which can significantly decrease the time and effort involved with the application of maintenance.

On June 23, 2016, the United Kingdom (UK) held a referendum and made the decision to leave the European Union (EU). However, the referendum itself was advisory, rather than legally binding. To trigger an exit from the EU, the UK government needs to invoke Article 50 of the Treaty of Lisbon, the EU legislation governing a potential breakup. Read more about this and what you need to do to prepare your FSCM application in Document 2155122.1 (Updating PeopleSoft FSCM for United Kingdom exit of the European Union).

Is my Application supported with the newest PeopleTools release?

 

Many times a customer site will want to stay on their current application release, but upgrade the PeopleTools to the most current release available.

An example would be staying on FSCM 9.1 but upgrading to PeopleTools 8.55. 

 

Will the current application release be supported on the newest PeopleTools release?

 

An easy way to find this information is to follow the steps and screenshots in document  E-UPG: PT8.4x, PT 8.5x: What Versions of PeopleTools Will Your Application run on? (Doc ID 1915747.1).  MOS Certifications may not specifically say:  Yes, FSCM 9.1 is supported on PTools 8.55. But the certification notes will show: 

 

PeopleSoft Financials and Supply Chain Management 9.1 can be run on PeopleTools 8.50 or higher.

 

Other considerations: Platform releases

 

If you upgrade to PeopleTools 8.55, then you may need to modify the releases of other products in your environment. Perhaps this is what is triggering the upgrade to begin with.

 

The database release may need to be modified - for example,  upgrading to Oracle 12.1.0.2.0.  This is one of 2 Oracle database releases currently supported for PT 8.55.   Would this release of Oracle work successfully with FSCM 9.1?   Note that it is the PeopleTools release that is tested and certified for use with the Rdbms release.  Yes, Oracle 12.1.0.2.0 is certified with PeopleTools 8.55.

 

You would want to verify that all software components in your environment (Operating Systems, Databases, Desktop Applications, etc.).

would be certified with PT 8.55.   A good place to start would be the Tech Update - Main Page (Doc ID 764222.1), found on MyOracle Support. 

Here you can determine if a third party product has reached end-of-life in general, or is no longer supported as of a specific PeopleTools release, or is newly supported.   Examples would include Tech Update – Oracle Retires Support for Crystal Reports (Doc ID 1927865.1) or Oracle Certifies Microsoft Windows 10 for PeopleSoft (Doc ID 2161227.1).

 

Sustaining Support

 

The certification notes continue:

 

For application releases that are on Sustaining Support, see My Oracle Support (Doc ID 1348959.1) for important upgrade considerations.

This document is titled Lifetime Support Summary for PeopleSoft Releases.  See section PeopleTools Considerations for PeopleSoft Applications on Sustaining Support, which says:

 

PeopleSoft Application releases can be run on the PeopleTools version that the application initially shipped with, up through and including

the latest available PeopleTools release

 

What about the NEXT upgrade?

 

Running an application release on Sustaining Support, if upgraded to a newer PeopleTools release, will impact the next Application Upgrade that is attempted. The application upgrades are written for a specific Peopletools release.  This information is found on each Upgrade's Home Page, shown in the Upgrade Path Certification chart.

 

  If you upgrade past the PeopleTools release that such an upgrade was written for, and in the future,  attempt to upgrade with that combination of products, there will be additional tasks to be completed in order for the upgrade to run.  These are generally modifications to the upgrade templates.  Required changes are listed in Upgrade Editing Instructions in the Lifetime Support Summary for PeopleSoft Releases (Doc ID 1348959.1).  

A Red Paper titled HCM 9.2 Guided Self Service is now available on My Oracle Support.  This red paper is a practical guide for technical users, installers, system administrators, and programmers who implement, maintain, or develop applications for your PeopleSoft system. In this red paper, we discuss guidelines on how to configure and customize Guided Self Service, including PeopleSoft Internet Architecture and Portal configuration.
