Oracle Releases PeopleSoft Cloud Manager Image 04

Mon, 2017-06-12 15:35

PeopleSoft Cloud Manager Image 04 is now available in Oracle Cloud Marketplace.  This new version brings in a number of new enhancements and fixes that customers were asking for.  We’re listening to feedback and working hard to incorporate your ideas into the product as quickly as possible. Here are some of the new features to try out in image 04.  Many thanks to Nagendra Krishnappa for putting this together.

Multiple Middle-Tier Provisioning

The prior images of Cloud Manager had a limitation on the number of middle-tiers that could be provisioned.  With this new image, you can create multiple middle-tiers and connect them all to the same database. In the topology definition, you can now add multiple middle-tier nodes for a topology.  When you add/use this topology in a template, you can configure attributes for each middle-tier individually.

Elastic Search deployment and Configuration

In image 03, Cloud Manager was deploying the Elastic Search server, but users had to manually configure and integrate it with the environment.  In image 04, Cloud Manager can now automatically integrate the Elastic Search server - one less administrative task for you. 

Support Lift of Campus Solutions On-Premise Environments

If you are using Campus Solutions, we now have the capability to migrate (“Lift and Shift”) your on-premise environment to Oracle Cloud.  Cloud Manager’s “Lift” utility will pack up your on-premise environment and “Shift” it to Oracle Cloud automatically. 

Configurable Persistent Boot Volume for Deployed Instances 

Boot volumes of PeopleSoft VMs were not configurable, thereby limiting the size of boot volumes to a standard image size.  You can now modify this setting to specify the larger sizes that you may need.

Security Updates

A couple of security fixes has been addressed in this release related to masking of sensitive data and hardening rules to control network access between provisioned VMs.

Bug Fixes

Improvements and fixes in areas of DBCS provisioning and environment management were addressed in this image. 

New Oracle Linux image for Cloud Manager

Along with the latest Cloud Manager image, we now have a reference Oracle Linux image to get you started quickly.  You can find it in Marketplace: PeopleSoft Linux Image for Cloud Manager.  Configure this image as the Linux image in Cloud Manager Settings and it will be used for all instance provisioning.  

You may also create your own custom image starting with Cloud Manager image 04.  To do that, first deploy an instance of the reference Oracle Linux image.  Next, connect to it and install/upgrade required packages, modify kernel parameters and customize configurations to suit your needs.  When you are done with customizations, create a new image from it and use it with Cloud Manager.  You can find more details about creating a custom Linux image for PeopleSoft Cloud Manager in the Creating a Custom Linux Image for PeopleSoft Cloud Manager tutorial.

Go ahead and enjoy the latest image, and continue to let us know what additional capabilities you would like to have in Cloud Manager!

 

PeopleTools 8.56 is Now Available

Fri, 2017-06-09 16:32

Great news from PeopleSoft!  We are happy to announce that PeopleTools 8.56 is now generally available for install and upgrade.  As is the case with all major PeopleTools releases, it's loaded with new features.  In this release you will find:

  • Ability to have a common look to the user interface in each application, regardless of the underlying Fluid or Classic technology
  • An open source search technology with proven success, that will be easier to install and manage
  • Lifecycle management process that lets change be selected directly from analytics
  • Ability to create test scripts that use queries to provide test data
  • More platform support for the PeopleSoft Deployment Framework
  • And it’s easier than ever to lift and run your PeopleSoft applications in the Oracle Cloud

Of course there’s more.  Where can you go to get all the details on 8.56?  The first place to start is always the PeopleSoft Information Portal, www.peoplesoftinfo.com.    Once there, select the PeopleTools tab.  There’s a great informational video that runs about ½ hour in length covering some of the new features.  For a bit more detail, check out PeopleTools section in the Cumulative Feature Overview tool (also linked to from the PeopleSoft Information Portal) or PeopleBooks online help.  To make it easy to find everything, here’s all the links:

Even though this is the first major PeopleTools release since 8.55 in Dec. 2015, you've already seen some of the new features we've been working on.  Selective Adoption lets us release new Enterprise Components like Approval Page Composer, Form Builder and Page and Field Configurator in PUM Images.  We made Elasticsearch available in PeopleTools 8.55, and of course there’s PeopleSoft Cloud Manager, the application available on the Oracle Cloud Marketplace that helps you run PeopleSoft Application on the Oracle Cloud.  Information on all of these features can be found in the PeopleSoft Information Portal.

PeopleTools 8.56 is a major release for PeopleSoft that we are sure will be beneficial.  Remember to keep up to date with the PeopleTools direction by visiting Planned Features and Enhancement page (https://support.oracle.com/epmos/faces/DocumentDisplay?id=1966243.2) on Oracle Support and we look forward to hearing your ideas about how we can improve PeopleTools by posting them on Idea Space (https://community.oracle.com/community/support/peoplesoft).

More Resources for Elasticsearch with PeopleSoft

Mon, 2017-05-22 18:22

There are some new resources available to help with your deployment of Elasticsearch with PeopleSoft.  First, there is a new paper that provides guidance on working with Elasticsearch clusters.  This paper describes setting up clusters during installation, adding and removing nodes, administration of the cluster, starting and stopping clusters and nodes, and managing large indexes.  The Cluster paper is available on the Elasticsearch Home Page on MyOracleSupport.  This paper applies to the PeopleTools release 8.55.11 or later patches.  When PeopleTools 8.56 is released, this cluster information will be included in the 8.56 PeopleBooks.

Two new Spotlight Series videos on Elasticsearch have also been posted.  They are part of a series that began with the Elasticsearch Strategies video, which provides an overview of the process of deploying Elasticsearch with PeopleSoft.  These latest videos cover two important topics:

  • Deploying Elasticsearch--Provides greater detail on the deployment process, particularly for customers that haven't deployed Oracle's Secure Enterprise Search and are not familiar with the PeopleSoft Search Framework.
  • Moving from SES to Elasticsearch--Provides detail on deploying Elasticsearch for customers that have deployed Secure Enterprise Search and the the PeopleSoft Search Framework.

Keep your eye on the Search Concepts Page on peoplesoftinfo.com for updates to Search technology with PeopleSoft.

Elasticsearch Versions Supported with PeopleSoft

Thu, 2017-05-18 02:00

PeopleSoft integration with Elasticsearch depends on the version of Elasticsearch that is distributed with PeopleTools.  PeopleSoft also provides PeopleSoft-specific customizations.  PeopleSoft currently provides a version of Elasticsearch 2.3.2 with PeopleSoft products.  This version of Elasticsearch is distributed to customers through our Deployment Packages (DPKs).  Customers have noted that Elastic, the company that provides Elasticsearch, has announced that version 2.3.2 will reach end of life on September 30, 2017.  It is important for customers to know that Oracle/PeopleSoft will continue to support that version of Elasticsearch, which we provide, beyond that date.   Customers will receive any fixes through our DPKs, and they should not attempt to get support or updates from Elastic.

In addition, we are currently working on certifying the latest version of Elasticsearch, and when that is complete, it will be available in our Elasticsearch Deployment Packages.  Our strategy is to support future versions of Elasticsearch when they are available after testing and certification.

Welcome to Our New Blog Platform

PeopleSoft Cloud Manager - Now Available

Wed, 2017-02-15 16:17

We’ve been talking about runningPeopleSoft Applications on the Oracle Compute Cloud ever since the release ofPeopleTools 8.55.  In release 8.55, we changed the way PeopleSoft is packaged andinstalled, using automated scripts for deployment and configuration. We call that the PeopleSoft CloudArchitecture.  Today, we make it even easier by automating processes like moving on premise environments to the cloud, provisioning of environments, defining topologies, cloning environmentsand maintaining application instances.  You could do these manually but thattakes a lot of time and resources.  Now they are all automated by PeopleSoft CloudManager.

What are thebasics?

This is not PeopleSoft running as aSaaS application.  There, got that out of the way.  This is you,moving your PeopleSoft Application from on premise to the Oracle Compute CloudService (also referred to as Oracle’s Infrastructure as a Service(IaaS)).  You move the database, application tier, web tier, app sources,tools source, everything that makes up a PeopleSoft application and place it inthe cloud.  You can do this for any of your instances, demo, dev, test,training, regression, sandbox, conference room pilot, and even production. Takeit one step further, and you can put your database on the Database CloudService and let Oracle manage patching the database for you.  This is yourapplication with your configurations, your customizations, your securityprofiles, and your data, and it’s running on the Oracle Cloud.  

PeopleSoft CloudManager

PeopleSoft Cloud Manager helps you runPeopleSoft Applications on the Oracle Compute Cloud.  You’ll find it onthe Oracle Marketplace and it’s free of charge.  Just load it on toyour Oracle Compute Cloud and start running. First thing you’ll want to do isget an environment.  That’s what Lift and Shift is for.  'Lift and Shift' packages up your on premise environment and copies it to the Cloud.  Oncethere, define a topology to identify all the resources your application willuse, and automatically deploy it.  From on premise to the cloud, fullyautomated, in a very short time. You don’t have to move all your PeopleSoft environmentsto the cloud.  Think of this as an extension of your data center.

Once you’ve got PeopleSoftApplications running on the Cloud, PeopleSoft Cloud Manager gives you a greatcollection of utilities and administrative features to manage them.  Youcan start and stop them (of course!).  If you don’t want one anymore, youcan delete it.  If you want another copy of an environment, you can cloneit.  And of course, none of this is worthwhile unless you can maintainthem.  Simply subscribe to application and tools changes, and anytimePeopleSoft publishes a changed (PRP, PUM image, PeopleTools patch, PeopleToolsrelease), it is automatically copied to your Cloud File Repository and ready tobe applied.  No more poking around My Oracle Support waiting for changesto be posted!

If you’ve been thinking about movingsome of your PeopleSoft operations to the cloud, you’ll want more informationabout Cloud Manager.  Of course, all of that can be found on thePeopleSoft Information Portal.  For more information about using theOracle Compute Cloud and Database Cloud Services, talk to your OracleTechnology Sales Representative.

Interaction Hub Image 3 Now Available

Wed, 2017-02-15 12:29

The latest image (Image 3) of the Interaction Hub is now available on My Oracle Support--PeopleSoft Update Manager Home Page.  To get the image, go to the PeopleSoft Update Images tab, then choose the Interaction Hub Update Images page.

This image contains a couple of beneficial features:

  • Uptake of Elasticsearch    Elasticsearch is the new search engine used with PeopleSoft.  It provides many benefits over previous implementations of search technology.  When Search is used with the Interaction Hub, you can have federated searching across all PeopleSoft applications including the Hub.  This means that when you run a search, you can retrieve results from all content sources.  Learn more about Elasticsearch with PeopleSoft from our Key Concepts page on Search.
  • Fluid Related Information for Content Management    This is functionally similar to Classic content management in Related Content.  There are three main aspects to this feature:  1) It enables users view all sorts of content from conventional articles, to videos or documents.  2) It provides a setup page for administrators to assign or update content, including context-specific content.  3) Enables administrators with extra privileges to create or update content management assignments, specify a role that can serve as content administrator, mark content as context sensitive, and turn on or off online content update capability. 

    Such managed content can be included in the Related Information from or in a page as embedded Related Information.  See PeopleBooks guidance on Related Information.
Information on features coming in future images will soon be posted on the Interaction Hub page on peoplesoftinfo.com.
