Assigning Full Table Publishing Rules

All PeopleSoft applications use common, centralized tables and pages to define how to publish full table messages. The Publish utility uses publishing rules to process the data.

This section discusses how to assign full table publishing rules.

Note: You can create multiple publish rules for the same message. The Full Table Publish utility treats each publish rule as a separate publishing cycle.

Usage

Full Table Publish Rules Page

EOIU_SOPUBFULL

Associate a rule with a message and characterize the rule.

Record Mapping Page

EOIU_SORECMAP

Map a message record to another record.

Languages Page

EOIU_SOLANGUAGE

Specify languages in which to publish a message.

Use the Full Table Publish Rules page (EOIU_SOPUBFULL) to associate a rule with a message and characterize the rule.

Message Options

The valid values are:

  • Create Message Header. Use to initiate pre-processing tasks on the subscribing system.

  • Create Message Trailer. Use to initiate post-processing tasks on the subscribing system.

By default, both options are enabled.

Ensure that the subscribing process does not need the header or trailer process before you deselect these check boxes for a Batch Publish message.

When sending messages sequentially, header messages trigger special logic (in a PeopleCode program) on the PeopleSoft full message subscription that deletes the existing application records. Also, some applications use the trailer message to indicate that all data messages have been received and to initiate the validation process. The documentation for the individual message should note whether headers and trailers are supported.

Create Delay Records

This check box appears only if the message name ends with FULLSYNC_EFF (such as MESSAGENAME_FULLSYNC_EFF). Select this check box to write all future-dated rows to the delay table. Also select this check box in conjunction with record mapping views that publish only the current effective-dated rows.

Use the Record Mapping page (EOIU_SORECMAP) to map a message record to another record.

Record Mapping page

Use this page to map a message record to another record.

Regardless of which source table you use (staging table, temporary table, or a view), ensure that the source table field names are identical to the field names in the target message record. Key fields must also adhere to the parent and child relationship. (Keys of a parent record must exist in the child record, in the same sequence.) The Publish utility uses the Source/Order By Record Name field to select rows for publishing. You use key matching to find all child rows of a parent.

The chunk field should be the primary key field in all Source/Order By records. If the chunk field is not a key field of the level zero record, join the chunk field to all records in which the chunk field does not exist by using views in PeopleSoft Application Designer.

Enter only those message records with a different source or ordering record. If the message record name and the source or ordering record name are identical, do not insert a row for that record on the Record Mapping page.

Use the Languages page (EOIU_SOLANGUAGE) to specify languages in which to publish a message.
