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.

Assist with PeopleSoft Compare Reports

If you install Stat during a PeopleSoft upgrade, the wizard assists you with your PeopleSoft compare reports. The wizard tells you which objects have been changed, eliminating this time-consuming step in the compare process.

The Wizard and Version Control

The Undocumented Object Wizard facilitates version control by automatically adding all the undocumented objects that it finds in the application environment to a CSR. You can then lock these objects on the CSR and create an archive set that serves as the baseline archive of the objects. If you run the wizard against the base environment in a migration path, Stat creates a base archive set automatically after you lock the objects on the CSR; for all other environments, an interim archive set must be created manually.

Select Object Mgmt | Undocumented Object Wizard.
In the Module field, select the appropriate change management module.
In the Database field, select the environment you want.
In the Object Type(s) field, scroll through the list of object types and select the type(s) you want. To select more than one object type, hold down the <Shift> or <Ctrl> key while you make your selections.
Click Next>.
PeopleSoft Date/Time Stamping — When you select this (default) option, the wizard displays a list of release dates contained in the PS Release table. The wizard then compares the release date you select to the date and time that each object was last updated. If an object date is more recent, the wizard then checks if that object is documented in Stat.
Date/Time — This option allows you to specify a date that is different than a release date. After you specify a date, the wizard then compares it to the date and time that each object was last updated. If an object date is more recent, the wizard then checks if that object is documented in Stat
PeopleSoft Oprid — This option allows you to specify a PeopleSoft OPRID that is either equal or not equal to the OPRID of the objects. If you selected Equals (=), the wizard identifies the objects with a matching OPRID and then checks if each object is documented in Stat. If you selected Not Equals (<>), the wizard identifies the objects that do not have a matching OPRID and checks if they are documented.
Click Next>.
If the wizard found undocumented objects and you want to add these objects to a CSR, click Next>. If the wizard did not find any undocumented objects, or you do not want to add any objects to a CSR, click Finish.
Objects under the Versions Changed heading, if any, need to be updated to the PeopleSoft environment version. To do this, select the object and click Update button. This updates the version of the object in Stat so that it matches the version in the PeopleSoft environment.
To specify existing CSRs, click Lookup CSRs.... This opens the Search CSR Engine, which you can use to locate the CSRs you want. In the Search CSR Engine window, select the CSRs in the results list and click Add.
If you want to create a new CSR, click New CSR.... After you create the CSR and save it, it is automatically added by the wizard.
Click Add>>.
Click Finish.
