Viewing Process Details



  1. Begin by navigating to the Process Monitor.


    Click the PeopleTools link.

    Step 1
  2. Click the Process Monitor link.

    Step 2
  3. Use the Process List page to monitor the process requests that you submit.

    Step 3
  4. Click the Details link to display the Process Details page.


    Click an entry in the Details column.

    Step 4
  5. Use the Process Detail page to view details, such as request parameters, message logs, and any recovery instances that have been run. Many of the items on this page are display-only. However, you can use some controls to manipulate the program run.

    Step 5
  6. The actions that are available in the Update Process group box depend on your user authorizations and the current status of the request. The Update Process group box is available only if your user ID is authorized to update the selected request.


    The option that you select depends on the current run status of the process request. For instance, you can’t cancel a job that has already finished, and you can’t hold a request that is currently processing.

    Step 6
  7. Use the Parameters page to view additional information about the process parameters.


    Click the Parameters link.

    Step 7
  8. All nonsecure, runtime definition variables are expanded for both client and server requests in the Parameters group box. Having this information should help eliminate configuration problems by identifying incorrect entries in either the PeopleSoft Configuration Manager (PSADMIN) or the operating environment.

    Step 8
  9. The Command Line displays the path and program used to run the process.


    You can select the command line and copy it into other tools. This is useful when you are trying to isolate a request-related problem originating outside of PeopleSoft Process Scheduler, such as an incorrect entry in Configuration Manager or an SQR compile problem.

    Step 9
  10. The Working Dir displays the directory in which the database connectivity software is installed

    Step 10
  11. Click the Return button.

    Step 11
  12. Use the Message Log page to view messages that are inserted into the message log by the program that you are running.


    Click the Message Log link.

    Step 12
  13. Click the Explain button to display a detailed explanation of the message.


    Note. This option is available for PeopleSoft Application Engine and COBOL processes only.

    Step 13
  14. Click the Return button.

    Step 14
  15. The Batch Timings link is  available only for process requests with a process type of Application Engine.


    Click the Batch Timings link.

    Step 15
  16. In this example, batch timing has not been activated.

    Step 16
  17. Click the vertical scrollbar.

    Step 17
  18. Click the Return button.

    Step 18
  19. The View Log/Trace link appears active on the Process Detail page when at least one of the following conditions is met:

    • The output destination for the process request is Web, and the report and log files were successfully posted to the Report Repository by the Distribution Agent.

    • The process request ran from a PeopleSoft Process Scheduler Server Agent that was set up using the Server Definition page with a distribution node.


    Click the View Log/Trace link.

    Step 19
  20. The View Log/Trace page enables you to view the output file, message log, and trace file in a browser.

    Step 20
  21. For an application engine, only the output file is listed because no report was produced when the process was run.


    Click an entry in the Name column.

    Step 21
  22. The report opens in a new window.


    Click the Close button.

    Step 22
  23. Click the Return button.

    Step 23
  24. Click the Cancel button.

    Step 24

You have completed the Viewing Process Details procedure.
