PPM 9.22 XML Import: Want to import Demand

Jump to solution

Good day Team,

We are tasked to on-board demand via the XML Import functionality via Demand Management.

However, it is vaguely documented.

Could you kindly provide further inside and tools (Excel Plugin) to proceed?

 

Much appreciated.

Herman W.

Hi,

 

Looks like the Excel import it is not disabled, but there isn't an updated version for 9.2. They are working on a new version but it will not be included on the PPM installation.

 

Thanks,

Randall

Best regards,
Randall

Hi H-man,

 

There is currently no tool offered for this feature. The Professional Services Organization (PSO) has a tool that is capable of importing this data. To contact PSO, please use the following email-address: swconsult@hp.com

We have a tool but it only imports time sheet data into PPM.

Best regards,
Randall

Hi,

 

In 9.22, there is a section in the Demand Management User's Guide titled "Importing Requests from XML Files". See if this has any information you are looking for.

 

When getting started, easiest thing to create a Request for the Request Type you are working with, do an Export to get an  .xml file to use that as a template, make some minor changes, and then Import a Request.

 

You may have seen this already, though just wanted to make sure. And I also have not heard of an Excel import that is part of the basic functionality of PPM at this time.

Hi Mike,
Thanks for your prompt reply.
Yes, we have found the same in the vanilla guides. However we were expecting further detail to be available around the xml template etc. and reference to the XML Importer Guide with the Excel plugin which generates the appropriate xml request. Regardless, we will proceed with what is available.

Good day,

Furthering the solution design of xml import/export it seems as if the following special command is not available,

ksc_export_request_as_xml, although it has been referenced in the vanilla documentation, released in PPM 9.12.

 

"Exporting Requests by Running the Special Command

In general, a request is exported via the PPM Center report. A new special command (ksc_export_request_as_xml) is introduced to generate the exported file for the report. Setting true indicates report mode."

 

Did Anyone else suffer from the same or is it possible that we've overlooked possible PPM Application Parameters.

 

Thanks,

Herman W

Hi Hernan,

 

 

You need to have the "Demand Mgmt: Import Request" access grant in order to use this command.

You cannot find "ksc_export_request_as_xml" in the special commands in the workbench, but doesn’t mean you cannot

Randall
