CS 9.0 to HCM 9.0/9.1 Person Data Integration
CS 9.0 to HCM 9.0/9.1 Person Data Integration
The Campus Solutions team is pleased to announce the availability of support for the CS 9.0 to HCM 9.0/9.1 Person Data Integration, which may also be referred to as the CS - HCM Integration in this newsletter. Customers may deploy the CS - HCM integration between separate instances of CS 9.0 and HCM 9.0 or wait to deploy the new capabilities when they upgrade to HCM 9.1. Note that there is no requirement for customers to separate the shared instance of CS/HCM until they decide to upgrade to HCM 9.1. Upon upgrading to HCM 9.1, customers will need to deploy separate instances of HCM 9.1 and CS 9.0.
Please see the link explaining this initiative in the News section of the Campus Solutions Product Information Page - Document 975038.1 in My Oracle Support.
In addition to the code enhancements released with CS 9.0 Bundle 19/Feature Pack 4, we have provided documentation to assist customers in planning for and deploying the integration. Please see My Oracle Support Document 1259484.1 for updated PeopleBooks and six CS - HCM Integration documents.

New Case Study on CS-HCM Integration
CS to HCM Integration: A Case Study
New Content! In our continuing effort to improve upon the knowledge articles available to you on My Oracle Support, Campus Solutions is adopting the Case Study format for certain processes to help you identify information you may need to know before, during and after the implementation of that process. In a Case Study we intend to provide you with process oriented documentation, pre-implementation considerations, troubleshooting tips, known issues and existing documentation accessible from a single article. The article will be a living document that will be update from time to time by our support team. We appreciate your suggestions to assist with such updates. Those customers implementing the integration between CS 9 and HCM 9.1 will want to review the following knowledge article:

New Bundle Master Notes
Bundle Master Notes
New Content! Another format that we are adopting in our knowledge base includes master notes for maintenance bundles. When we post a maintenance bundle, we will also publish a knowledge document that includes information relevant to the application of the bundle, information that may help you to avoid certain problems when applying the bundle and functional or technical problems that may arise after implementation of the bundle. Our intention is to deliver a single article that helps you identify information you need to know about the fix We encourage you to use the Bundle ID to search for the relevant Bundle Master Note on My Oracle Support when getting started. Even if you have already applied the most recent bundles, you can visit the knowledge article for your application release and provide suggestions to Oracle.
