Browser updates effecting some screens in PeopleSoft

posted Jul 28, 2021, 12:34 PM by Barbara Thiss

On Monday, July 26, 2021, we notified you that the Chrome and EDGE browsers were blocking actions in PeopleSoft. We have discovered Chrome (7/21) and EDGE (7/26) browsers were updated. These updates affected screens in both HCM and Finance when rows are added or searches are performed. This is a bug that Oracle is researching.

If you are encountering problems, we recommend using Firefox or Internet Explorer until this is resolved.

Please forward this information to those members of your team that are working in PeopleSoft HCM or Finance.

If you have any questions, please contact PeopleSoft Support by submitting a Service Portal Ticket.

Disaster Recovery Failover Test September 25, 2021, PeopleSoft Access Affected

posted Jul 28, 2021, 9:02 AM by Barbara Thiss

PeopleSoft HCM, Finance, and ESS will not be available from midnight – 1:00 pm, September 25, 2021 so that SDCOE, selected districts, and our Managed Services provider can run a test of the Disaster Recovery Failover Plan. This critical test will validate the ability of PeopleSoft Finance and HCM environments to be switched to an alternate environment in the unlikely event of a disaster at the production facility. In the event of an actual emergency, while PeopleSoft is live on the disaster recovery environment, users will be able to continue performing production work. Once the disaster is over and the normal production environment is back up, any work performed in the disaster environment will be migrated back to Production.

On September 25, 2021, once Finance and HCM Production is back up, users will be notified via an email from the PeopleSoft Support Team. PBCS will not be affected.

If you have any questions, please contact PeopleSoft Support by submitting a Service Portal (ServiceNow) Ticket.
