My name is Srikanth Addala. I just started this blog so that I dont have to search my documents to find simple things I have done before. Lately, started sending the link to my friends who needed help with same things I have done before. Let me know what you think………….

    Hi Sri,

    Love the blog. Would you have any additonal documentation (other than peoplebooks) on how 3rd parties can interact with PeopleSoft Web Services (PeopleTools 8.49)? We plan on providing component interface-based services.


  2. addsrikanth says:

    Thanks Tony. I will add new post on how to integrate third paryt systems through CI (web services) over this weekend.

    Hello Sri,

    Cam to your about your blog by googling for BPEL & PeopleSoft. The article on integrating amazon web service with PS is really a nice one.
    Since I am already working on PeopleSoft, I have just one question though. I can understand that BPEL/web services adding value to the finance/crm part but can you please give some suggestions on how would this benefit the HCM product. As per my thinking, I cannot visualize a situation in which employee data would be shared (may be security policies).

    Hello Srikanth,
    I’ve been working on setting up integration with a 3rd party product – but have been facing issues with the same. Could you please send me your personal mail id so that I can get to you with details of my issue.

    Thank you,

    Hi Sri,

    Good stuff in your blog. I am very new to interfacing from PeopleSoft to third party Web Services, and am struggling to get started. I need to validate an address using a Web Service. I created a simple test page as you suggested, along with the corresponding component, menu, record, WSDL Wizard stuff, etc. In my PeopleCode, for now, I have hard-coded the address parameters just to test requests and responses. But when I click the button, I get an error: “…Schema in… has a different target namespace from the one specified in the instance document .Error: ( line: 2 column: 118 ) Unknown element ‘SOAP-ENV:Envelope’ (158,530).

    Any suggestions?


  6. Dean says:

    n/m. I turned off Service Schema Validation, and everything worked after that.

    Me and my collegues were working on CI based web services integration with a 3rd party application. Your blog helped a lot. Thanks a ton!

    Hi Sri,

    I loved the post “PeopleSoft Integration with Asp.net using CI based (in-bound) web services. I was wondering if you have any examples of checking for errors or using the EmpFind method. I’m having some trouble.

    Excellent blog.

    Could you post an example of reading an xml file into PeopleSoft

    Thank you.


  11. Mike says:

    Srikanth, what I am trying to do is to read an XML file into PeopleSoft. What your example shows is outputting an XML file from PeopleSoft.

    Do you have an example of an XML file being read by PeopleSoft?


  12. Mike says:

    Srikanth, I had a look at your example – but the problem is that my XML is pretty complex. Can filelayout handle complex XML?

  13. addsrikanth says:


    File layout will be able to handle any complex structure(schema) as long as you dont want to process the incoming elements.That is, you want to insert data from the incoming XML file as is into the record(s).But most implementation dont work that way, from my experience, so you are better off using xmldoc class.With XMLDoc you have greater flexibility to process each element.But you have have to manually write code to process each and every element in the schema.

  14. Steve says:


    I wanted to thank you for the helpful information on integrating PeopleSoft CI’s with .net using the wsdl. I would like to share some of the code enhancements that I made to work with find, create, updatedata, and exception handling to your example. If you can provide me your email address I would be happy to send you the code.

    Hi Srikant,

    I need a help from you regarding integration between Peoplesoft and Active Directory (exchange) using Web Services. Can you please help me in providing steps on how to go about it?

    I have created Web Service in Peoplesoft to provide, but stuck at how it will be consumed by Exchange.

    Any help will be highly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Srikanth,

    Let me know how to access your blogs.

  18. Rohit says:

    Hi Srikanth,

    Nice post! Currently I am working on HT project and I can see lot of code written by you.Hat’s Off to you!
    I have a question here, can you let me know where the decomposition of Order takes place..is it CRM or in TIBCO..when an new install order is created in CRM with POTS and DSL..two separate XMLs are generated in TIBCO for POTS and DSL..can you let me know wherein the business logic written to perform this.

    Awaiting you response.


    • addsrikanth says:

      WOW!Anything related to HT brings back bitter(and sometimes sweet) memories of working on that project.
      Anyways,Order split is done in CRM in the the HTOrder application package. If the code has not been changed, then, there should be an array with list of products.An XML order file is generated for each product in the arrary depending on the which order was created.
      Please feel free to send me any additional questions you have.

    How do you create the soap array elements using soapdoc on peoplecode. i am able to create methods but i need to create it under the main method. for example, soap-inc:array type=”xsd:string:[13]” something like that. It looks like a second method inside first method since it has the closing tag at the end, but didn’t work that way. Thanks
