For customers who license Global Payroll for PeopleSoft, it is challenging to perform the steps related to GP in the Upgrade Process. This is especially true when you have customized a number of elements within the system. Here I just want to give a few pointers based on my own experience as an Upgrade consultant in a few of the projects.
In the 9.1 Upgrades, Oracle gives licensed as well as unlicensed GP Rule Packages which need to be copied to the system. This essentially means that you will have elements of all countries in the system. For the Licensed Rule package, there is a compare process which reports the customizations and you need to choose whether the element can be overwritten or not. Similarly, there is a package for Rule Deletes, which when compared shows obsolete elements that can be removed from the system. The Non-Rule package containing the elements and records will be copied as per the delivered process. If there is license for a new country extension in the new version, a separate non-rule package for the same needs to be created and copied.
GP_PKG_ELEMENTS – Has complete information on the Package Element compare, upgrade status. Can also be used to set flags for compare/upgrade if doing it through PIA is cumbersome.
GP_PKG_RUNCTL – Has run control information for each of the package.
GP_PKG_DEFN – High Level definition for the package with version.
GP_PKG_CRIT1 and GP_PKG_CRIT2 – Various default criteria and conditions defined for the package.
GP_PKG_PINMAP – GP – Pin Map Record.
