PeopleSoft Object Security Setup Instructions

Object Security setup involves both the Stat Repository and the PeopleSoft development environments. Object security terminology differs somewhat between the different versions of PeopleTools that Stat supports, and although the following instructions are intended for all supported versions of PeopleTools, the examples are based on PeopleTools 8.1x, as does the terminology when specificity is required. This chapter assumes that the administrator setting up object locking in Stat has a working knowledge of PeopleSoft security and access to the PeopleBooks for their release of PeopleTools.

Some of the terminology differences include:

In general terms, the procedure for setting up object security between Stat and PeopleSoft (regardless of version) entails defining a unique Object/Definition Security Group for each developer. The security groups are associated to the user’s Primary Permission List (Primary Operator Class). The security groups have a designated format of STAT_Operid. You will need to decide what format to use for your new Primary Permission Lists or Operator Classes in your environments. Note that Object/Definition Security is assigned at the Primary Permission List level, not by the Roles associated with a user.

For PeopleSoft 8.5.3 and lower, to ensure that the security group is never empty, you create a unique object that always resides in the security group. This is referred to as the placeholder object.

After the groups are defined and associated to users in PeopleSoft, turn on object locking at the service domain level in Stat, turn on Physical Locking at the environment level, and then set up an Agent job to synchronize the groups.

Step 1 (Stat): Assign Stat's PS Oprid

Object security requires that you define a PeopleSoft Operator ID in Stat for each environment. PS Oprid is a prefix for Definition Security Groups. A default value of “STAT” is assigned by the system, for example, STAT_READ or STAT_EXCLUD. You can keep the default ID or specify a different one. The ID can be up to thirty characters in length and does not have to be set up in PeopleSoft.

Step 2 (Stat): Assign Developers' PS Oprids

For each PeopleSoft environment using Object Security, you need to define a unique PeopleSoft Oprid for each developer. It is recommended that after you define the Oprids, you have each developer specify his or her own password.

In Stat, you can enter PeopleSoft Oprids and passwords from three different locations. As a system administrator, you can enter them either by user from the User Maintenance table or by environment from the PeopleSoft Environment Connection Maintenance table. In addition, users can enter their own IDs and/or passwords from their workstations by selecting User Options | PeopleSoft Options.

If by user, select Maintenance | Security Settings | User Maintenance. Then in the User Maintenance table, double-click on the user you want. This opens the Other Information window. Click the PS Options tab.
If by environment, click PS Options... in the PeopleSoft Environment Connect Maintenance table.

Step 3 (PS): Add Placeholder Object (for PeopleSoft 8.5.3 and lower)

The next step is to create a single, “placeholder” object for each PeopleSoft environment in the Application Designer. These objects keep Object Security groups open while the Stat Central Agent processes synchronization jobs. The Placeholder object’s object type must not be an excluded object type, and the object itself must not be deleted from PeopleSoft.

You must use the following naming conventions when adding a placeholder object to a PeopleSoft environment:

For example, if the operator ID is the default, “STAT,” the placeholder object would be “ZZSTATDONOTDEL.”

Placeholder objects are only used by Stat. You can use copies of other objects or new objects as long as you follow the above naming conventions.
