PeopleSoft Node User Setup

First, we need to set up a new user (OPRID) that will be tied to the node we will create. All code in PeopleSoft executes under some “user context”. This means that all PeopleCode is running as some valid PeopleSoft OPRID. When using an integration broker node, the service operations routed from the client node will execute under that user ID that you attached to a node. We need to ensure whatever security it set up for that user can execute whatever business logic and objects that the service operation handler code executes.

First and foremost, the user on the node needs access to the actual Service Operation. Secondly, if there are any Component Interfaces accessed the user needs access to those. Additionally, for component interface based handlers, data security or application security may be applied as part of the underlying component. So the user needs access to that as well.

  • Create a new permission list which will name: CHG_TEST_NODE
    • You will end up adding Service Operation security to this permission list.
  • Create a new Role called CHG_TEST_NODE that contains one permission list CHG_TEST_NODE.
  • Create a new OPRID with the following characteristics:
    • Password - None
    • Symbolic ID: A valid one for your DB.
    • ID Type: None
    • Roles: CHG_TEST_NODE
