CFS Data Warehouse Upgrade

A new look for the CFS Data Warehouse is on its way!

The CSU is migrating to the latest Oracle Analytics Cloud (OAC) platform, providing a slight change to the look and feel (refer to Figures 3 to 5). Users will see all the same existing dashboards and reports they currently have access to and saved customizations (reports) will transfer to the new OAC.

The new OAC platform was made available on November 16, 2022 and will run concurrently with the existing OBIEE platform. Data in both current and new CFS Data Warehouse environments will refresh nightly. For login instructions to OAC, refer to Figure 1 and 1A. Users should build and save new customizations in the OAC environment. The current Data Warehouse (OBIEE) will be retired January 7, 2023.

Access the new OAC platform through the CFS Data Warehouse tile in One.SJSU. FinanceConnect will update the campus regarding reference resources as they become available and will be using our regularly scheduled Finance Open Labs for training throughout the coming months. We encourage users to explore the new data warehouse.

Figure 1:   Both CFS Data Warehouse OBIEE and OAC are available to users. We recommend users to start using OAC because Legacy will be decommissioned on January 7, 2023.

CFS 9.2 MP 5 Upgrade Completed

The CFS 9.2 MP 5 upgrade is completed and the system, along with FTS and CFS Data Warehouse, are available again to users.  Campus users should clear their browser cache before logging into production. Refer to our blog announcement for the enhancements made to CFS 9.2.
If you have any questions, please contact Finance Support at financeconnect@sjsu.edu or 4-1558.

CFS 9.2 MP 5 Upgrade

The CSU is upgrading the current Common Financial System (CFS) 9.2 with Maintenance Pack 5.0. This is a systemwide implementation which will allow us to continue operating within an Oracle-supported CFS environment. The upgrade is scheduled to go-live the morning of Monday, November 21, 2022.

In order to accommodate the upgrade, CFS will be unavailable to all campuses starting from 5:00 p.m. on Friday, November 18 until 9:00 a.m. on Monday, November 21.

How will the CFS shutdown affect campus users?

  • Financial Transaction Services (FTS) will be available for users to view, create, submit, and approve Requisitions, Vouchers, Transfers and HR Expense Adjustments. However, FTS transactions will be on hold from distribution until CFS is available again.
  • Change Orders, ProCard/GoCard Statement Submission and e-Invoice Submission in FTS will not be available.
  • CFS Data Warehouse will not be available from November 18 at 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 a.m. on November 21.

Do I need to do anything?

No action is needed. User’s access to the modules in CFS will remain unchanged and homepage collections/favorites will migrate to CFS MP 5.0.
