PeopleSoft has unique key indexes. Most of the columns are not null, and providing you don't have a descending column in the unique index, you could create a primary key using the unique key.

You could also set _IGNORE_DESC_IN_INDEXES and rebuild the unique indexes with descending columns. Then you could create primary keys for all tables with unique keys.  

PeopleTools has its own data dictionary from which you can obtain all this information.

yea but if the application ensure integrity then keycols are not requiered, in fact that would slow down the migration process since you have to involve people from peoplesoft to tell you which columns can be used as potentil keycols candidates

GoldenGate has constructs to simulate the existence of a PK or UK via the use of "KEYCOLS" during replication setup phase.

I dont have exp with Logical Standby but have use GoldenGate for several migrations.

GoldenGate can handle tables with no PK or FK, not recommendable but it works, what it does is it uses all columns as PK when there is no PK defined. As long as the application handles correctly referential integrity GoldenGate is ok

Has anyone done GoldenGate or Logical Standby setup for an *entire* Peoplesoft (Financials) Schema ?

Peoplesoft doesn't have PK and FK definitions and Referential Integrity constraints. Would GG / LS be doable ?
