Modifying Object Upgrade and Action Values

After PeopleSoft proprietary objects have been archived in an archive set, you can modify their default Upgrade and Action values. You can change an object’s Upgrade value to “do not upgrade” and its Action value from “copy” to “delete.” Then, when you migrate the archive set, you have the option of using a Stat-created PeopleSoft project, in which case the project uses the objects’ Upgrade and Action values specified in the archive set.

Be aware the Upgrade and Action values for objects specified in the archive set are only used in a migration when a Stat-created PeopleSoft project is used. They are not used when you use a PeopleSoft project contained within an archive set to perform the migration. In this case the Upgrade and Action values are set at the time you archived the project definition, and the Upgrade and Action settings in the archive set are ignored. For more information, see Migration Overview .

Stat lets you delete unwanted objects from selected PeopleSoft environments on a migration path. After adding the unwanted objects to an archive set, you can mark them for deletion. When you migrate an archive set containing objects marked for deletion to an environment, Stat deletes them from that environment. However, you can always recover deleted objects since they remain archived in the Stat Repository.

In the Action field, change the setting to Delete.

If you decide that you do not want to delete an object marked for deletion before you migrate it, go back to the Migration Flags tab and in the Action field change the setting to Copy. Stat is now configured to migrate the object as it normally would by placing a copy of the object in the target environment rather than deleting it.

When you first add an object to an archive set, the Upgrade option is selected by default, as indicated in the Migration Flags tab. You can de-select this option for any object in an archive set. When the object is migrated to an environment, the PeopleSoft project created by Stat in the staging database includes the object’s modified Upgrade value.

Select or de-select the Upgrade option for each object you want.
Click Ok to save the CSR.

For PeopleSoft version 8.x, Stat supports subobjects of Record and Field object types (Record Fields for Records and Field Labels for Fields). Adding a subobject to an archive set allows you to modify its values separately from the values of its parent object. For example, in a PeopleSoft patch or upgrade, a Record object definition might have a CopyProp Action value, while one of its Record Field subobjects might have a Delete Action value.

For more information on associating subobjects to CSRs, see Associating Related PeopleSoft Proprietary Objects .

By default, all subobjects are marked Upgrade with an Action value of Copy (unless associated to the CSR by means of the Read Project Wizard, in which case they retain the values specified in the project).
The default Action value of parent objects is CopyProp. This indicates that PeopleSoft will take action on just the property of the parent object, and it will look to the individual subobject for what action to take - Copy or Delete. This is primarily used when a user is trying to delete a field from a record, or trying to add new fields.
If a user overrides the default value CopyProp of a parent objects and sets it to Copy, then all of the subobjects will be copied, regardless of the flags set on them.
For each subobject that you want to change the Action value, click in the Action column and select Delete or Copy depending on the action you want taken on the subobject. 
Click Ok to save the CSR.

Copying Archive Sets

When you copy an archive set, the copy retains the migration order and any object upgrade and action values set on the source archive set.


Archive Set Logs

The Logs tab of the archive set window displays any messages Stat logged during the archive process.

This tab provides you with a complete list of messages logged by Stat. It is a running log of the activities involved with the archive sets.

The Logs tab displays the following information:

The date and time the message was logged.

Archive sets are created by processes run by different objects in Stat. These object processes each have their own capabilities and tasks. The Object column displays the Stat object that reported the message. These objects include:

Mgr – The manager object creates, destroys, and instructs all the other objects
Trg – Indicates the target environment
Src – Indicates the source environment

There are three types of messages: Information, Error, and Warning.

The text of the message.

The Objects tab features the following short cut buttons:

Next Error – Navigates you through your error/warning messages
Print – Prints the contents of the window. Pressing this button automatically sends a job to the printer. There are no print options.
Export – Exports the information in this window. Pressing this button opens a Save As window. Several file types are available for selection using the vertical scroll. An Excel format is most useful for evaluating this data.
Clear – Clears the logs generated for this archive set

Re-archiving Objects

If for some reason the Stat Central Agent is unable to create an archive set without errors, rather than creating a second archive set, you can simply re-archive selected objects in the original archive set. When you re-archive objects, the Stat Central Agent deletes the original archive set and creates a new archive set containing only those objects you selected.

Although you can re-archive objects in any archive set, even those that were created without errors, you should only re-archive objects that were not successfully archived the first time. If you want to re-archive objects in an archive set that was created without errors, you should create an interim archive set.

To re-archive objects, in the Objects tab, select the objects you want to re-archive and click Re-Archive.
