Appendix: Migrating Change Packages or Maintenance Updates
This appendix describes the procedure used to migrate change packages or maintenance updates to your environment.
Note. This process is required for every change package delivered by PeopleSoft. For example, Financials 8.8 Maintenance Pack 1
is delivered in 5 change packages—therefore, financial customers would need to create 5 modified change packages for
each of the delivered change packages. PeopleSoft does not support the addition or removal of files in any delivered change
package.

Using PeopleSoft Change Assistant, apply a change package or maintenance update to the demo database.
Run the project compare operation of installed updates to the development or copy of production.
Review each customized object and decide whether or not you want to allow the object to be copied into your development
database.
Copy project from the demo database to the development or copy of production database.
Select the objects in the project that require re-customization, and reapply customizations.
Select the Upgrade checkbox for each object that required re-customization.
Copy project to file.
You can specify any location; for example, c:\peoplesoft\modified\project.
Extract the files from the delivered change package.
Update the project files (.xml and .ini) in the extracted project directory with the exported custom project. For example, copy
PRJ151828.XML and PRJ151828.INI from c:\peoplesoft\modified\projects\PRJ151828 to
c:\peoplesoft\extracted\upd151828\PRJ151828.
Examine the files changes in the maintenance pack with customized files. Typically, these files exist in the updXXXXXX_batch
directory.
Update file changes where necessary.
Open the modified project in PeopleSoft Application Designer and repackage the change package by selecting Tools, Finalize
Change Package.
When you are prompted for the directory, enter the high-level extracted directory. For example, c:\peoplesoft\extracted\upd151828.
Apply the modified maintenance updates to the test or production database or both.
When you are prompted to enter the apply directory, enter the directory that contains the modified change package. For example,
c:\peoplesoft\extracted\upd151828.
The modified change package already includes customizations from the development database and modified files from the
development environment. Therefore, now PeopleSoft Change Assistant can be used to migrate both the delivered and the
customized objects in the customer's environment without additional manual interventions.
