    upgrade FSCM8.4/PT8.56

    4080751

      Hello experts,

       

      I'm considering upgrading the system.

      Are there any possible disadvantages with the combination of Fin8.4 and PT8.56?

       

      I only upgrade PeopleTools from 8.55.

       

      Thank you,

          Hi,

           

          Please refer to release notes of PT 8.56(link below) . Since you are on lower application version, you may not be able to take advantages of many features delivered in PT 8.56 but ensure that you don't suffer to due to any certification issues(with database, OS, browser etc) or limitations (like xmllink doesn't work on higher version of PT etc.).

          Thanks,

          Gyana

            Hi 4080751,

             

            In addition to what Gyana told as above, I would like to share the following info to give you a future road map.

             

            Please be aware of an IMPORTANT change to the Lifetime Support Summary for PeopleSoft Releases, KM Doc ID 2238983.2


            Highlighted below is the revised text which was included in the PeopleTools Considerations for PeopleSoft Applications on Sustaining Support section of the KM document:


            “Due to enhancements and fixes in PeopleTools 8.57 that require the use of the LOB data type, we recommend that PeopleSoft 8.9 and below application releases not upgrade beyond PeopleTools 8.56. Upgrading beyond PeopleTools 8.56 on these older releases will cause application issues that will not be resolved given the releases are on Sustaining Support.”

            ------------------------------

             

            Thanks,

             

            Rahul
