When the PeopleSoft page is visited through the navigation, the Peoplesoft displays the search page to collect the key information to display the page details. However the Peoplesoft provides different functionalities to override the search key functionality in the Component:

1. Search record:

The Component search page is structured based on the search key values of the Component Search record. When the Search record does not contain any search key fields in the Record structure then the search page will not be displayed for the component.

For E.g. INSTALLATION table does not contain any key structures and it has been setup as the Component Search record. When the component is visited through PIA, the search page will be bypassed and sent directly to PeopleSoft pages.

Bypassing Search Pages

By Passing Search Pages

By Passing Search Pages

PeopleCode:

Consider the scenario where the record with search key structure needs to be setup as the Component search record and it need to bypass the Component Search page. In such case, Peoplesoft delivers a ‘SetSearchDialogBehavior’ function to pass the key values through the PeopleCode and bypass the component search page.

For E.g. HEX_TEST_VW is setup as the search record for HEX_TEST_CMP component. HEX_TEST_VW has the search key of EMPLID field. The value of EMPLID field is passed through the PeopleCode and the ‘SetSearchDialogBehavior’ function is called to bypass the component search page.


Note:
When the Search key passed through the PeopleCode is not matched then the control will be in Component search page to enter the new search key values

URL:
The search key values can be passed through the URL also. The URL will be concatenated with the Search Key field name with its value after the menu and the component information. In such case, when the user logins to the PeopleSoft, the PIA will be automatically navigated to the specified page with the Search key values from the URL.

For E.g. The following URL navigates to the HEX_TEST_CMP component in the UNISYS_TEST menu with the search key field value for Emplid as ‘PA002’. In such case when the user logins to the system with the PeopleSoft credentials the PIA transfers to the specified component with the search key value. This type will be more useful when the URL information is passed through the mail.

Note: When the Search key passed through the URL is not matched then the control will be in Component search page to enter the new search key values.

http://XXXXX/psp/hrms89/EMPLOYEE/PSFT_HR/c/UNISYS_TEST.
HEX_TEST_CMP.GBL?EMPLID=PA002

The Component search page is structured based on the search key values of the Component Search record. When the Search record does not contain any search key fields in the Record structure then the search page will not be displayed for the component.
