Achieve advanced scheduling capabilities for PeopleSoft ERP tasks
batch scheduling and data exchange
dependencies for PeopleSoft applications
recurring tasks like Crystal Reports and SQL scripts
The PeopleSoft Process Scheduler is part of the PeopleSoft Enterprise software suite developed by Oracle. Functionality is included for executing batch scheduling and business processes like running SQL reports, performing data extracts, and tasks related to data integration. This tool can be used for job scheduling and workflow automation within the PeopleSoft system through a centralized platform. Administrators can define and manage processes and assign them to specific server names or process groups and set up dependencies.
PeopleSoft can be integrated with more advanced job scheduling and workload automation tools to streamline workflows and process types across applications within an organization’s tech stack.
Redwood offers workload automation solutions designed for growth through a cloud-native platform that can keep pace with business evolution. By integrating PeopleSoft applications with Redwood’s WLA solution, teams have more control over queued tasks and performance.
Overcome limitations imposed through the PeopleSoft Process Scheduler by integrating with Redwood. Orchestrate PeopleSoft and other Oracle ERP natively by incorporating REST web services in minutes using simple API wizards.
Connect and manage processes from PSNT (PeopleSoft Native), PeopleSoft Process Schedule Server, and the application servers.
Workflows can be triggered based on events or data, and users can visually follow progress in real-time. Automation use cases include finance automation, managed file transfer automation, DevOps automation, ERP automation, ETL automation, hybrid cloud automation, self-service automation, and web server and microservice automation.
Designed with software developers in mind, Redwood supports over 25 scripting languages from the command line or GUI, including Python, COBOL, PowerShell, and more. Teams have the freedom to select lightweight, self-updating agents for Windows, Linux, Unix, and MacOS. SOA APIs provide the ability to quickly build consumable automation services across on-premises and cloud-based environments.
Some of the key functionality offered by the PeopleSoft Process Scheduler includes:
In the context of PeopleSoft Process Scheduler, a jobset and a PeopleSoft job are two distinct concepts for managing and scheduling processes. A jobset is a grouping mechanism for organizing and scheduling multiple PeopleSoft jobs together, while a PeopleSoft job is an individual process or task. Jobsets offer a higher level of control and dependency management compared to individual jobs.
A jobset is a collection of related PeopleSoft jobs that are grouped together for scheduling and execution purposes. It serves as a container that allows you to organize and manage multiple jobs as a single entity. Jobsets are often used when you have a series of interdependent jobs that need to run in a specific order.
Some important things to note about jobsets:
A PeopleSoft job represents an individual process or task to be executed within the PeopleSoft system. It can be a batch process like running Crystal reports, updating file names or process names, initiating a data mover, executing an Application Engine program, running SQL scripts, and more. Each PeopleSoft job is associated with a specific definition and set of parameters.
Some important things to note about PeopleSoft jobs:
In the context of PeopleSoft, "Psjob" refers to a PeopleSoft job. A Psjob is an individual process or task within the PeopleSoft system that can be scheduled and executed.
PeopleTools is a comprehensive set of development tools and technologies by Oracle for building, customizing, and maintaining PeopleSoft applications. It serves as the underlying foundation for the PeopleSoft Enterprise software suite. Developers use it to design, develop, and deploy applications within the PeopleSoft environment.
An example of PeopleTools include solutions for reporting and analytics. These tools are used to create, manage, and deliver reports and metrics within PeopleSoft applications. This includes the Query Manager, nVision for multidimensional reporting, and the BI publisher for custom reports and document templates.
