Auto Login to PeopleSoft and App Designer July 4, 2007Posted by Duncan in PeopleSoft, PeopleTools, PIA.
You can set up shortcuts to auto-logon to the PeopleSoft PIA and/or App Designer.
I’m still in two minds whether to add this post or not, but there are some circumstances where this can save you a bit of time and I’m sure you’ll know when and where that is – for example, on a single user VM, or in a DEMO environment, or even in a DEV environment if it’s a small team. It’s no different to having single sign-on enabled for PIA logon anyway. It shouldn’t need stating that these shortcuts should never be used in any environments where security is important, and under no circumstances anywhere near a Production environment!
Create a new shortcut and adapt the following line for your environment:
<pshome>\bin\client\winx86\pside.exe -CT <dbtype> -CD <dbname> -CO <oprid> -CP <pwd>
D:\pshome\bin\client\winx86\pside.exe -CT ORACLE -CD HR9DMO -CO PS -CP PS
It may help to alter the properties of the shortcut to run it maximised window, just to save clicking each time …
The following works for some tools versions and not others. I’m sure it has worked in Tools 8.4x, but it doesn’t seem to work on Tools 8.48. If you get this working, let me know your Tools version and we’ll see if we can work out when they put a stop to it, or if it works for you in Tools8.48 what I’m doing wrong.
Remove line breaks from URLs when pasting. I don’t know what the ‘disconnect=y’ does.
