It is nearly 10 years since I first wrote about how to call Unix shell scripts from the Process Scheduler
. Although very little has changed, I have had a number of questions recently, so I thought it was time I checked the script and updated the posting. I have used PeopleTools 8.54 in the preparation of this note.
The Process Scheduler is essentially just a mechanism for initiating processes on another server. (more...)
We are in the final countdown for Alliance 2017. I am really excited about this conference. It is such a great opportunity to meet up with old friends as well as make new ones. The Alliance session content and delivery is extremely high caliber. HEUG is a very engaged community. The MGM is a pretty amazing facility as well.
At GreyHeller our week starts with an amazing Monday workshop. On Monday, February 27th from 10:00 (more...)
I discovered the unistr sql function, which shows the unicode symbol of an hexadecimal input.
eg> select unistr('\2713 ') tick from dual;
As such I constructed a dynamic (sql) LOV in apex, converting the Y/N codes into a unicode symbol. See the tick symbol query above.
Linking the LOV to a reporting column (text shown as LOV) changed the Y/N values of the column in a nice symbol.
Things might look a little different on the blog if you haven’t been back in a while. And, things might not be working quite up to par for a bit. Please pardon the dust. I’m trying to get things back in order as quickly as my schedule allows.
So, here’s what’s going on: I am moving my website to a VPS. My term at Hostgator expired, and I decided that this next year, I want (more...)
Wish every one a Happy New Year.
The next profile in our ‘How I Work‘ series is Colton Fischer. Colton is one of the crop of new PeopleSoft bloggers bursting on the scene during 2016. His PeopleSoft Mods blog is a treasure trove of great content and if you’ve not been there before it’s worth scrolling back through Colton’s historical posts – as he doesn’t just look at existing delivered functionality but extends PeopleSoft in ways that it’s clear to (more...)
Healthcare is treated as one of the asset intensive industry. In healthcare/life science there are processes for fixed assets that requires that barcode tags bearing globally unique numbers be affixed to all tangible assets listed as on the Fixed Asset register. Normally companies prefer to have asset tag printed from the system on pre-printed stationary […]
We are working on a native plsql integration between popay.net and Netsuite. We need such for some new customers in Kenya and South Africa. The solution will be based on raw SOAP messages, all handled with plsql, including the token based authentication (TBA).
By pure coincidence, Larry opted to acquire Netsuite during the same period.
The documentation is sometimes a little though to get
There’s a great episode of Marc Weintraub’s PeopleSoft Talk interview series, featuring a 30 minute discussion with Paco Aubrejuan. There’ll be some great points for everyone to take away from it, however here are my highlights:
On the current Support End date of December 2027:
There’s no plan on ending support for PeopleSoft then, it’s actually not that important a date. It happens to be the date right now that our lifetime support goes to … (more...)

At 11:00 AM Pacific on Tuesday, October 25th (tomorrow), I have the privilege of talking about Cloud and on-premise (ground) integration. Whether cloud to cloud, cloud to ground, or ground to ground, integration is probably one of the most difficult aspects of any implementation. Integration comes in two flavors:
Back-end integration is the most common. Back-end integration involves integrating data between two systems either for processing or presenting a common user experience.
Oracle being proactive about out-of-support systems, patch availability and expiring passwords is nothing new. But this takes it to a different level altogether.
The DPK scripts are simply amazing. I enjoy the flexibility of the new DPK system. I will confess, creating an HCM demo environment with DPK is not as easy as the prior PUM image method, but it is pretty close. As I prepared for OpenWorld 2016, I thought I would download the latest HCM DPK (update 18) and build out a new demo server on my MacBook. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to use the standard (more...)
