We are already using PPM. I want to have Emp ID column included in PPM which comes from people soft database.

For the already existed users, I should manually add the Emp ID's. Or is there any way to do it automatically.

Hi,

 

you can update the existing users in the database after you have defined the user user data field.

Hi,

 

check the documentation for Demand Management Configuration Guide, available with your PPM instance.

PPM doesn't provide any out of the box functionality to pull data from ePeople. You'd have to use a database feed or web services to get that data which requires a level of support you probably won't get here in the forum. Not because folks here can't help but because its not necessarily a simple thing to do. You should contact your support vendor if you have one.

We use PPM's User Open Interface which is designed to import/update user data.  You could push any data you want into user_data fields.  It still requires a custom program to populate the knta_users_int table and run the Import Users report.  Note that we have had problems running this script for large collections of users and it time's out after a default of 3 minutes.
