To use Performance Management Architect for application administration, you can transform applications being managed using Financial Management Classic Administration, Planning Classic Administration, or Essbase.
For information on Classic Application Administration features (for applications not being managed using Performance Management Architect), see the Oracle Hyperion Planning Administrator's Guide or the Oracle Hyperion Financial Management Administrator's Guide.
Applications must be migrated to Release 188.8.131.52 before they are moved.
If you transform an application created in Classic Application Administration to Performance Management Architect, the application cannot return to Classic Application Administration.
Before transforming a Classic Planning application to Performance Management Architect, remove any spaces in the names of attribute dimensions. For example, rename an attribute called Extra Small to ExtraSmall.
Before a Classic Planning application is moved to Performance Management Architect, all users must be logged off the application. You can notify users by sending a broadcast message. See the Oracle Hyperion Planning Administrator's Guide.
To enable support for Performance Management Architect applications, the Financial Management Application Server must have IIS installed. However, the ASP components need not be enabled.
To transform Classic applications to Performance Management Architect:
The Application Summary page displays the applications to which the user has access to transform. (This information is provided from the Shared Services server. If an application cannot be transformed, an explanation is provided.)
To check on the progress of the transformation, navigate to the Library Job Console. (Navigate, then Administer, and then Library Job Console). If the transformation of applications to Performance Management Architect is not successful, you can view detailed information about the transformation in the Import Job log in the Library Job Console—Attachments area. See Working with the Job Console.
When a Classic Planning application is transformed to Performance Management Architect, the first occurrence of a member in Planning is shared, after the transformation, the member remains shared, and the hierarchies in Planning and Performance Management Architect are identical.
