June 2018: Bb Predict data updates

During June 2018, PeopleSoft underwent a significant maintenance which separated the HR and Student data portions. As a result, the DataLink server which uploads certain PS data to Bb Predict is no longer able to connect to PeopleSoft.

Until this is resolved, Bb Predict may be working from stale demographic data.

  • June 14, 2018: PeopleSoft goes offline for maintenance. DataLink is not able to connect because PS is offline.
  • June 17, 2018: PeopleSoft comes back online.
  • June 18, 2018: DataLink is still not able to connect.

Support staff are investigating options to resolve this outage. Bb Predict will continue to function in the meantime. The data fields which are missing do not get updated very often, so expected impact is minimal.
