Report Sync Issues in SES | PeopleSoft Tutorial

Report Sync Issues in SES

When you uninstall and reinstall a SES instance or you refresh a PeopleSoft instance, you can end up getting several trivial issues. Most of these issues revolve around the fact that the PeopleSoft database and the SES database have gone out of sync.

The obvious way to resolve these error is to do “Report Sync Issues” and do a reset definition. However, if you’re unlucky – there may be a bunch of errors waiting for you 🙂

When you try to do “Report Sync Issues” you will receive a message like this:

cannot access member Id. (180,236) PT_SEARCH.SESIMPL

The text reads as:

First operand of . is NULL, so cannot access member Id. (180,236) PT_SEARCH.SESIMPL.AdminService.OnExecute  Name:CheckSyncPSFTAttribute  PCPC:28694  Statement:376
Called from:PTSF_DP_SBO_WRK.PTSF_CHECKSYNC.FieldChange  Statement:66

The first operand of the dot operator is the NULL value, indicating the lack of any object value. As a consequence, the given method or property cannot be used.


When you try to undeploy it, you receive an error:

EQA-11000 The object with key and type sourceGroup was not found. (262,1018)

The text of which reads as:

Service Exception: ns2:CreatableAdminObjectFault : EQA-11000: The object with key “[name=HC_HRS_APP_INDEX_HCM92]” and type “sourceGroup” was not found. (262,1018) PT_SEARCH.SESIMPL.MESSAGE.AdminResponse.OnExecute  Name:AdminResponse  PCPC:1452  Statement:20

Called from:PTSF_DP_SBO_WRK.PTSF_UNDEPLOY_BTN.FieldChange  Statement:90

Service Exception



This becomes tricky, right? Obviosuly the issue is because your PeopleSoft and SES databases are out of sync. Follow these steps to get through the issue:

Do the following in order to reconcile the two databases:
1) Go to the Deploy/Delete Object page.
2) Check the Search Definition that you want to undeploy.
3) Click “Update” and you will notice Success in the Audit status.
3) Click the “Report Sync Issues” button.
4) After doing this, you should get a hyperlink next to the search definition that shows “Reset Definition for Deploy”.
5) Click that hyperlink and it should undeploy the definition.

    What about when you don’t get the hyperlink next to the search definition that shows “Reset Definition for Deploy”?
