The Customer needs to find the PIA page(s) that access/update particular fields or records. Using App Designer they can determine the Page, Component and Menu that are used, but can't connect the Menu with the portal navigation, to discover how to get the menu in PIA.
Using SQL with the PTools tables, they can capture the component and menu using tables such as PSPNLFIELD, PSPNLGROUP and PSMENUITEM. If they know the PORTAL_OBJNAME, they can use the PSPRSMDEFN table to determine the navigation, based on the parent object name kept in that table. How do they connect the MENUNAME with a PORTAL_OBJNAME?
For example: In the PIA, the customer can look in PeopleTools > Portal > Structure & Content. From there they can select a Content Reference, such as Budget Period Analysis. It has a portal objectname of PF_BP_REV_INQ_COMP2_GBL. On that same page they can associate that portal object with a Menu, a Market and a Component. In this case with EPM 8.8, they are associated with the menu BUDGETS_INQUIRY and component BP_REV_INQ_COMP2. What is the name of the database table that contains the linking that they see on this PIA page, and how do they join them?
