PA Project Event Upload


Overview of the PA Project Event Upload process


The PA Project Event Upload allows users to create new Project Billing and Revenue Events in excel and upload these into Oracle EBS Projects module.

Project and Billing events can be uploaded against the Projects belonging to the Operating Units accessible to the responsibility in which the PA Project Event Upload process is run.

This upload does not support the update of existing project events.

Process Parameters

Product Source Mandatory.

The Product Source to be used against the uploaded Project Events

Operating Unit Optional.

If the Operating Unit parameter is specified, then the upload will be restricted to Projects within the specified Operating Unit only.

Default Event Date Optional.

This date will default as the event date in the generated excel template but can be overridden.

Validate DFF Attributes Mandatory.  Default Value: Yes

This determines if Oracle should validate the DFF Attributes Rules:

  • Validate that required DFF attributes are specified.
  • Validate the entered values are correct according to the DFF Flexfield validation rules.

If you specify No to this parameter, the DFF Validations will be bypassed any DFF Attribute values specified in the Excel template will not be loaded. The Oracle API will assign null values to the event attribute columns.

Note: The parameter values specified when you run the PA Project Event process to generate the excel are applicable to the upload of that excel as well.

Pre-defined Templates

There are no pre-defined templates with this upload. Users can create their own templates as per their requirements.
By default, when no template is specified when running the upload process, all available fields are included in the generated template.

Excel Upload Template

By default, when no template is specified when running the upload process, all available fields are included in the generated template. Users can create their own templates as per their requirements.

The Action, Status and Message columns are used by the upload process to indicate the current status of the row. For this upload, the Action will always show as Create. The possible values for these columns are shown below:

Before Upload
Entering data into a new row
On Save – If there is a validation error (like missing required Data

The message will indicate the reason the validation failed.

Note: If you attempt to upload an excel file contain rows with an Invalid Status, these rows will be ignored by the upload process.

On Save – If validation is successful
After Upload
Row was upload successfully
Row was not processed successfully

The message will indicate the reason the upload of this row failed.

The columns in the Excel template whose heading are highlighted in Yellow are required columns which must have a value specified before you can upload the row:

The columns that show a dropdown symbol to the right of the column, have List of Values (LOV) associated with them. The LOV can be activated by double clicking in the cell, or by partially entering a value and tabbing out of the cell:

Some of the cells in the Excel will default automatically based on the data entered in other cells.

For example:

  • The event date will default automatically from the Default Event Date parameter specified when the process was run.
  • The Project Name, Project Functional Currency, and Project Current will default automatically from the selected Project.

The Task Name will default automatically from the selected Task.

Upload Process

This section outlines the overall process for performing a Blitz Upload

Step Initiated From Action
1 EBS Blitz Report Form Generate the Upload Excel Template.

  • Select the Blitz Upload Report to be run.
  • Optionally select the template to be used for the generated Excel.
  • Enter the required parameters.
  • Click on the Run Button to run the report and generate the Excel.

This will generate the excel template in which the user will enter the date to be uploaded.

2 Excel Enter the data as required into the generated Excel.

Remember to save the excel after data entry is complete and all rows show the status valid:

3 EBS Blitz Report Form Initiate the Upload Process.

  • Select the Blitz Upload Report to be run.
  • Click on the Upload Button to run the report and generate the Excel.

This will open a browser window where you can upload the Excel file to the server for processing.

4 Browser Window Upload the Excel File to the server.

  • Click on Choose File and select the excel file to be uploaded.
  • Click on Submit to initiate the Upload.
  • Close the Browser window once the upload confirmation is received.

5 Excel Review the Upload results.

  • After the upload is processed, a new Excel is automatically generated showing the results of the upload.
  • Success Status:
  • Error Status

Note: Any errors can be corrected in this new excel, and the upload process repeated using this excel instead of the original.

Upload Process Concurrent Requests

Blitz Reports and Blitz Upload are run as concurrent requests. For a Blitz Upload Process, 3 concurrent requests are submitted. One when the process is initially run to generate the template, and two when the upload process is initiated.

Stage Purpose Request Output
Initial Run Program: XXEN_REPORT

Download data (applicable to uploads that allow updates) and generate the excel template.

The excel template to be used to enter/update the date for upload
Upload Program: XXEN_UPLOAD

Performs the Upload processing of the data into Oracle EBS


The log file of this request will show detailed debugging information from the upload process if the profile option Blitz Report Debug is set to Yes.

Note: When profile option Blitz Report Debug is set to Yes, the log file of each request is opened automatically instead of the output file. In this case use View Output of the request in order to open the generated excels manually.

Upload Program: XXEN_REPORT

Generates the excel containing the results of the Upload

The excel template containing the rows uploaded and the status of the upload process for each row uploaded.
