Human Capital Management/Campus Budget Information:
If you work primarily with Human Resources/Employee-related information or Campus Budget Module information, go to the HCM database: www.stonybrook.edu/hcmprod
If you work primarily with Campus Community/Student/Course-related information, go to the CS database: www.stonybrook.edu/csprod
There is no change. Go to www.stonybrook.edu/solar and click the link to sign in.
The two databases are synchronized. Log into the one you primarily work in and you will see all of the menus that you have access to regardless of which database they reside in. The only exception is the Process Monitor, Report Manager and Query Manager. Each database has its own. So, for instance, if you run a CS process you will only see it in the CS Process Monitor. To make this easier we provided menu items to each Process Monitor (CS and HCM), Report Manager (CS and HCM) and Query Manager (CS and HCM).
From a PeopleSoft page, press Ctrl+J or Shift+Ctrl+J to display database information.
Run them in the database instance you are currently working in, CS or HCM.
Run your queries as you normally would. If you cannot find your query in the Query Manager, check the Query Manager in the other database, HCM or CS.
Issues with the data that you see in your queries will be addressed by University Information Systems. Contact them for assistance.
Human Resources reports must be run in the HCM database and Campus Solutions reports must be run in the CS database. Budget Module reports are run in the HCM database.
No. Password changes apply to both databases. You only need one password.
No. Your Favorites within PeopleSoft will be preserved.
You should remove all of your old favorites/bookmarks and add the new one. We recommend that you use the Favorites within PeopleSoft to bookmark the pages that you use most frequently.
Some reports or windows within PeopleSoft are considered pop-ups. You may have to change your browser settings to allow pop-ups from the new PeopleSoft URLs.
This should not be necessary, but clearing your cache might help when you're trying to resolve an issue.
Problems can be reported online using the DoIT Help Portal or by calling Client Support at 632-9800.
Person, workforce, and security data.
Yes. During periods of peak activity there may be a slight delay. If there appear to be problems or unusual delays, see your University Information Systems contact.
No. We are using standard 'asynchronous' messaging, commonly known as "Publish/Fire and Forget."
There may be a problem with data that needs to be addressed by the business department. University Information Systems can assist with getting the data in sync.
Yes, but only if you have each open in it's own "session". For instance, you can open the CS database in one session and the HCM database in a different session. Or, SOLAR in one session and HCM in another. Do not open a new window or open a new tab.
