UKOUG Apps 2013 Conference

The UKOUG PeopleSoft community have two days of finance, HR and PeopleTools presentations at The Brewery in London as part of the Apps 2013 event.  As always the networking with other customers and partners proved very useful.  Thanks to everyone who came and shared and participated in this community event.

I shared some of Oxfam's experiences in upgrading to PeopleTools 8.53 and my presentation can be accessed here.  

If anyone else is doing or about to start doing a PeopleSoft 9.2 or PeopleTools 8.53 Only upgrade then please get in touch.  Always happy to exchange ideas and share experiences.

How to put PeopleSoft credentials into SOAP request

If you have the User/Password Required checked on for a SOAP based Service Operation then you'll need to supply the PeopleSoft user credentials in the SOAP header request.  This is what the wsse section of the SOAP request looks like.  You'll likely want to enable https so that your plain text username and password is encrypted.

PeopleTools 8.54 news from OOW

Some more news from OOW 2013.  This one (like most news on future releases) comes with Oracle's usual Safe Harbour Statement.

Application Designer in PeopleTools 8.54 will have auto-code-complete in the PeopleCode editor.  If you can't wait for this long awaited feature then some text editors (like Ultraedit ) not only have syntax highlighting but a limited version of code completion as well.
