E-NV: Retention Days for Nvision to File Output

(Doc ID 2206503.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 09, 2017

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.54 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Retention days cannot be modified for reports which are run to "File" output.

This can cause the following error for drilldowns because the nVision report expired :

"Failed to transfer files between Report Repository and nVision Instance Directory. (28,226)"


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Login to PIA
2. Navigate to Reporting Tools > PS/nVision > Define Report Request (Define ReportBook)
3. Set Output Type to "File"
4. Open "Scope and Delivery Templates"
5. Notice the "Retention Days" parameter is missing
