Assumptions and Prerequisites

The following assumptions apply to this document:

  • Scope of this document is limited to the integration between CRM and FSCM (required synchronization between HRMS/FSCM and HRMS/CRM is not discussed).

  • Information in this document applies to both Releases 9.0 and 9.1, unless otherwise specified

  • Scope of this document is limited to the integration between CRM and FSCM (required synchronization between HRMS/FSCM and HRMS/CRM is not discussed).

  • Information in this document applies to both Releases 9.0 and 9.1, unless otherwise specified

The following prerequisite setup within CRM is required:

  • Enable the PeopleSoft CRM application for Asset Integration.

    See Enabling PeopleSoft CRM for HelpDesk Integration with PeopleSoft IT Asset Management

  • Set up the Product Mapping table that associates combinations of Financials (FSCM) data (Asset Subtype, Manufacturer, and Model) with a Product ID that can be used for the CRM Installed Product entry if no Product ID is provided by FSCM. Product ID is a required field for CRM Installed Assets, but not for Financials assets.

    See Setting Up CRM Application for Asset Integration.

  • Synchronize additional data required for asset integration, including: Asset Subtype, Manufacturer, Location, Department, and Employee.

  • After synchronizing this data between the two systems, the actual initial one-time loading of asset data from Financials (FSCM) to CRM can be initiated using the COPY_IT_ASSET service operation.

  • Once these steps have been performed, the CRM system should have all asset data with an Asset Type of 010 (IT-Hardware) from the Financials system. At that point, the individual asset synchronization steps using the SYNC_IT_ASSET service operation can be performed.
