Blog Series Overview:

Article Overview:
The intent of this article is to showcase Campus Community features and functionality released on October 30th 2019 in the PeopleSoft Campus Solutions 9.2 PUM image 15.

Article:
The fifteenth PUM image of PeopleSoft Campus Solutions 9.2 is currently available for download and contains some new features/functionality for Campus Community including new functionality across Applications.

In PUM image 15, Oracle has delivered the following functionality for the Campus Community Module:

1. Common Attribute Framework (CAF) for Student Groups

CAF is enabled for these records to allow you to define additional attributes for reporting purposes:

  • Student Group Table (STDNT_GROUP_TBL)
  • Student Groups History (STDNT_GRPS_HIST)

For student groups history:

  • A link to the secondary page is added using the defined message text on Secondary Page Options (Set Up SACR > Common Definitions > Common Attributes Setup > Record Context > Secondary Page Options). This link appears only when you define at least one attribute in the related Record Context. On the secondary page, if a default value is defined for the attribute, the attribute value defaults when new records are added.
  • When a new Student Group is added for a student, any attributes you’ve defined for the STDNT_ GRPS_HIST record context are created for the history record. Any default values defined in the Common Attribute setup are populated. When a new effective-dated record is added, any CAF attributes for the existing row are copied to the new row.

Because CAF is enabled for Student Groups History, the process that creates New Student Groups History records is updated to:

  • Copy any CAF attribute values that are defined for a previous effective-dated record to the new effective-dated record.
  • Create any attribute that’s been defined for the STDNT_GRPS_HIST record context if there aren’t any previous effective-dated records. Any default values that are defined in the Common Attribute setup are also populated.

There are no updates to Online Help or PeopleBooks related to these CAF changes.

2. Update to the Transaction Management Process

The Search/Match Parameters page is updated with new fields that allow you to specify a rule that checks for duplicates. The new fields are: Suspend Duplicates and Duplicate Rule.

For more information, see “Specifying Search/Match Parameters for Batch Processing” in Working with Constituent Transaction Management (PeopleSoft Campus Solutions 9.2: Campus Community).

3. Update to Population Update: ADM_APPL_DATA

For the Population Selection process, if you are running Population Update on the ADM_APPL_DATA record, and in setting up an update for the Completed Date field you do not specify any date and leave it blank, the system date is used as the field value.

For information, see “Running the Population Update Process” in Using the Population Selection Process (PeopleSoft Campus Solutions 9.2: Campus Community).
