Last updated on JANUARY 25, 2017

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.55 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On : 8.55 version, Change Assistant

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
Change Assistant did not show a warning when objects fail to copy due to being locked.

Change Assistant 8.55.11 is used to apply PeopleTools patch 8.55.11 to some instances that were at 8.55.06 and 8.55.08. Later it was discovered that a few objects didn't copy from the project file because they were locked on the target database. The project copy step in CA shows a green check mark, and even viewing the logs shows green check marks by each, rather than a red error icon, or at the very least a yellow warning icon. Shouldn't it have made the problem more apparent to us up front?

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Change Assistant should notify the user if there are errors/ warnings on a step.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Run the project copy step on Change Assistant

BUSINESS IMPACT
-----------------------
The issue has the following business impact: Minor impact but causes doubt on step execution on CA.
