Undocumented Patch Tool

The Undocumented Patch Tool searches selected PeopleSoft 8.x or Oracle Applications environments and identifies any patches that are not documented in the Stat Repository (meaning not associated with a CSR). If it finds any undocumented patches, you can add this information to either a new or an existing CSR.

1
Select Object Mgmt | Undocumented Patches.
2
In the Module field, select the change management module you are using.
Options include PeopleSoft and Oracle Applications.
3
In the Environment field and from the list of active environments select the one in which you want to search for undocumented patches.
If you want to add a patch to an existing CSR, click Lookup CSRs. This opens the Search CSR Engine. Use the Search CSR Engine to locate the CSR(s) that you want to add the undocumented patch to. You can select multiple CSRs if the wizard returns multiple undocumented patches and you want to add different patches to different CSRs. Stat displays an error message if you select a CSR that does not support patches. After selecting the CSR(s) you want, close the Search Engine. For more information, see The Search CSR Engine .
If you want to add a patch to a new CSR, click New CSR.... Then follow the instructions for creating a new CSR described in Chapter 3, “Change/Service Requests.” Make sure to create a CSR that supports patches. After creating the CSR, close the CSR window.
7
(Optional) For PeopleSoft, if you want to document a patch by adding an undocumented incident to a CSR, select the incident and click Add>>. Then specify the project name of the patch that you want to associate with the incident.
8
Click Add>>. Stat adds the patches to the selected CSR.

Object Comparison Tools

You can use the Stat’s object comparison tools (the Object Compare Wizard and the File Comparison Tool) to compare the definition of either two objects of the same type or two versions of the same object. For certain classes of objects, you can use the Object Merge Wizard to combine the definitions into a new object which you can then add to an archive set and migrate.

You can compare object definitions found in the following locations:

Comparing Different Object Classes

The process of comparing object definitions in Stat varies, depending on the class of objects.

PeopleSoft and Data Objects

In the case of PeopleSoft proprietary and data objects, you can use the Object Compare Wizard to compare different objects as long as they are of the same object type. Also, for PeopleSoft proprietary objects, you can use the Object Merge Wizard to combine the two versions into a new object definition. The merged object definition is then automatically archived on a new Stat-generated archive set. This way, you can keep your PeopleSoft proprietary objects updated and synchronized across environments.

You can also use the Object Compare Wizard to compare the scripts of PeopleCode objects version 8.x. When comparing PeopleCode scripts, the wizard invokes CLI functionality to launch PeopleSoft, decodes the scripts and then compares the scripts as text-based objects, allowing you to quickly identify differences.
