Setting Up Your PeopleSoft Connections

Before Stat can interact with the objects in your PeopleSoft environments, it must first connect to those environments. For certain activities, such as editing or auto-migrating objects, it does this using the PeopleSoft Operator ID and password assigned to you for each environment. This allows Stat to access these environments and physically lock the objects you want to work with or open the object you want to edit. Your system administrator can specify your operator ID and password for each environment in the User Maintenance table, or you can do it yourself in the PeopleSoft Options window.

The PeopleSoft Options window displays a list of all the PeopleSoft environments defined in Stat that you can connect to. Here you can define a separate PeopleSoft operator ID and password for each environment.

In this window, you can also configure Stat to do the following:

If you want Stat to perform any of these tasks, you must specify both your PS Operator ID and password for the selected environment.

Staging databases and PeopleSoft environments are defined by system administrators in the PeopleSoft Environment Connection Maintenance table, which is described in the book, Stat System Administration, Chapter 4, “General Maintenance Tables.” Migration paths and distribution environments are defined by system administrators in the PeopleSoft Environment Migration Path Maintenance table, which is described in the book, Stat System Administration, Chapter 5, “Service Domain-Specific Maintenance.”

Select User Options | PeopleSoft Options.
Click the corresponding Enter Password button in the PS Password column.
In the Change Password dialog box, enter the password in the New Password and Verify Password fields.
Click OK.
A green checkmark icon appears to the right of the Enter Password button indicating that a password has been created.
(Optional) Select CLI Open for any designated staging database.
(Optional) Select CLI Auto-Migr for any environment designated in a migration path as either the target environment for staged objects and/or as a distribution environment.
If you selected either CLI Open or CLI Auto-Migration, specify the directory of the user’s PS Tools executable in the PS Tools Directory field.

Classification of Supported Objects (PeopleSoft)

Whether used in conjunction with PeopleSoft, Oracle Applications, or a generic application, Stat enables developers to work with objects in a more secure, controlled, and well-documented manner.

In Stat, any action you take involving an object is handled and recorded on its associated CSR, including editing, archiving, or migrating it to other environments. Also, Stat lets you place a lock on an object once you associate it with a CSR. Object locking promotes coordination between developers by ensuring that they do not overwrite each other’s work.

There are four classes of objects that you can associate with CSRs:

PeopleSoft Proprietary Objects

These are objects native to your PeopleSoft environments, such as Records and Pages. With Stat, you can lock, archive, and migrate PeopleSoft proprietary objects version 7 and higher. For a complete list of objects that Stat supports, see Appendix: Supported PeopleSoft Proprietary Objects .

File Objects

Stat supports change management for file type objects (also called flat files). In addition to the COBOL, COBOL CPY, SQR, and SQC file types Stat automatically supports, system administrators can configure Stat to support any other type of file object residing in your PeopleSoft environments. This configuration includes defining working directories where users can modify file objects assigned to them.
