Please note the Job Opportunities link on the Portal Sign-In page will also be unavailable through Portal.

Agencies may choose to provide users with a direct link to these modules via their own internal/external website or email. Upon completion of the upgrade, these modules will be available through the Portal on Monday, March 20 at 8 a.m.

Business Objects

Business Objects will be available; however, CAPPS reports will be unavailable during the upgrade weekend.

Agency User Acceptance Test Information

Sandbox (SBX1): After the PeopleTools upgrade, the CAPPS Sandbox environments (PIHSBX1, FINSBX1 and HCMSBX1) will continue to serve as the User Acceptance Test environments for Production changes. These environments will be upgraded and available to agencies starting Wednesday, March 22.

Upon availability, the data in these environments will be refreshed from Production as of Monday, March 20.

User Acceptance Test (UAT1): The CAPPS User Acceptance Test environments (PIHUAT1, FINUAT1 and HCMUAT1) will soon be turned over to the Deployment teams to begin preparing them for agency testing of the new Deployment and Image code. To avoid requiring your testers to change Testing environments multiple times in a short period of time, we will continue to leverage Sandbox (PIHSBX1, FINSBX1 and HCMSBX1) for UAT activities for Production issues.

Reporting Test (RPT2): After the PeopleTools upgrade the CAPPS Reporting Test environments (FINRPT2 and HCMRPT2) will no longer be available as they will be leveraged for deployment testing. The links visible in the UAT environments will be removed.
