Undocumented Object Wizard

The Undocumented Object Wizard searches a selected environment and identifies any objects that are either undocumented or version-changed. An object is considered undocumented if it has been modified but is either not associated with a CSR or, if it is associated with a CSR, it has been modified after the CSR was closed or the object was unlocked. An object is considered version-changed if it is associated with CSR but is in the process of being modified. After the wizard has identified any undocumented objects, you can then associate them with CSRs. Because version-changed objects are already associated with CSRs, they are reported for informational purposes. This provides project managers with the ability to see what objects are being modified during a PeopleSoft project.

The Undocumented Object Wizard has five functions:

Prime the Stat Repository

The Undocumented Object Wizard supports the initial implementation of Stat. When run at this time, the wizard locates all the objects in your environments that have been modified since the last application stamping. It does this by comparing the release date and time fields in the application’s release table to the last update time field in the definition table for each object.

After it finds all the undocumented objects, you can use the wizard to associate them with a CSR. The goal is to associate all modified objects with a CSR at all times.

Audit the System

You can run the wizard to find all objects that were changed but not documented in Stat, as well as new, undocumented objects created in your application environments. This ensures that developers are documenting changes they make to objects.

The wizard reports modified objects as being either “undocumented” or “version-changed.” A modified object is reported as undocumented if it has not been associated with a CSR in Stat, or, if it has been associated with a CSR, it has been modified after the CSR was closed or the object was unlocked. A modified object is reported as version-changed if its CSR is open and the object is locked in its application environment but its version number has been changed in its application environment after the object lock was obtained.

Undocumented objects indicate that at some point proper business practices were not followed. Remember that the goal is to have all modified objects documented in a CSR at all times. Version-changed objects, on the other hand, are reported for informational purposes only. They can be used by Project Managers to keep tabs on what is currently being modified in the application environments during project life cycles.

When proper business procedures are followed, it is not necessary to run the wizard very often. Since this is not always the case, the wizard can be run on a periodic basis to monitor undocumented changes and add undocumented objects to CSRs.

Identify Schema Changes in an Environment

With the Undocumented Object Wizard, you can scan the schema object definitions in a selected PeopleSoft, Oracle Applications, or generic application environment and identify any modifications to these objects that are not recorded on a CSR. The Wizard compares the date-time stamping of schema objects with the stamping documented in Stat; if a schema object has a later date-time stamp, the wizard reports it as undocumented.
