    To run a process using a Pushbutton or hyperlink in PeopleSoft

    Is it possible to run a process such as SQR, Application Engine, COBOL, Crystal Reports, Data Mover, Cube Builder by the click of a hyperlink in PeopleSoft, that too without any coding (PeopleCode)?
    Yes, we can run a process using a Pushbutton or hyperlink in PeopleSoft.

    To schedule or run a process via online by PeopleCode see my earlier post on Scheduling/Running a SQR from Peoplecode

    This post elaborates on using Pushbutton/Hyperlink to invoke a Process via PeopleSoft process scheduler.
    1) Insert a Push button in the Page definition from which user would invoke the process.
    2) In the Destination drop down, chose 'Process'
    3) Associate a Record and Field.
    4) In the 'Process' area, choose:
         a) 'Type' of process - One of SQR, Application Engine, COBOL, Crystal Reports, Data Mover, Cube Builder
         b) Process 'Name' - defined via PeopleSoft and/or added as a Process in PeopleSoft Process Scheduler.
    5) Click 'OK' and Save the Page

    Now the associated process gets triggered whenever the pushbutton or hyperlink is clicked upon.

    3. Hi All,
      This feature is disabled post PeopleTools version 8.4x. So to do the same thing calling to an App engine program, customized code would need to change the Push Button/Hyperlink on the page to make use of the "PeopleCode Command", and in the PeopleCode use CallAppEngine() to execute the AE.
