Issue/Introduction

We are creating a new job stream which interacts with PeopleSoft. It needs to run a PeopleSoft process type of BI Publisher. In CAWA, on the job configuration screen there is a Process Type dropdown, but BI Publisher is missing.

Do we need to upgrade the agents/server to support BI Publisher processes? Does any version support them? I was unable to find this documentation on CA's website.

Environment

CA Workload Automation DE Server
CA Workload Automation Agent for PeopleSoft

Resolution

The PeopleSoft Process Type drop-down does not list all the PeopleSoft process types you can run in PeopleSoft. You can specify the process type of the process you want to run in the 'Process type' field provided the process type is defined in PeopleSoft and PeopleSoft can process it. So, type 'BI Publisher' in Process Type field, and save the job. This is documented with the Note below;

Process type
Specifies the PeopleSoft process type corresponding to the process that you want to run. PeopleSoft stores the list of process types in the PS_PRCSTYPEDEFN table. This value corresponds to the Process Type field in PeopleSoft.

Example: Application Engine

Note: If the process type corresponding to the process that you want to run does not appear in the drop-down list, you can type the process type in the field.
