Configuring Integration Gateway

Here are the steps for configuring Integration Gateway in PeopleSoft: 

Open a browser and enter the URL string in the address bar http://ipaddress/PSIGW/PeopleSoftListeningConnector Click enter, you will see the screen showing the following message.

PeopleSoft Integration Gateway
PeopleSoft Listening connector
Tools version:8.45.10
Status: ACTIVE

Loading Gateway Connectors:
Go to PeopleTools> Integration Broker> Gateways

On this page check the Local Gateway check box.
Enter http://ipaddress/PSIGW/PeopleSoftListeningConnector  in the URL field

First Save the Page. Then Click on Load Gateway Connectors button, this will populate all the Connectors and shows the following message.

Loading Process was successful. Number of connectors Loaded:10, Number of Properties Loaded 164.(158,42)

Hit the Save Button to save all the connectors.

Modification of Gateway Properties file:

Click on Properties link after the URL field.

Enter USERID and Password. (Default USERID = administrator and Password = password)

Gateway Properties file will open up.

Modify the following lines in the gateway properties file

ig.isc.PT_LOCAL.serverURL=//ipaddress:JOLT Listener Port
#Use the supplied “PAssword Encryption Utility” to generate an encrypted password for the next entry.

After modification of Gateway Properties file, Click on Apply button, and then Click on OK button. Save the Gateway page again.

From 8.49 tools onwards, you no longer need to edit the gateway properties file, instead there will be fields you need to fill the fields. Check the Node by pinging the node. You should get success result when you ping the node. Then Save the page.

Reboot the web server after the configuration file is modified.

Making Domain Status Active:
Go to PeopleTools> Integration Broker> Monitor > Monitor Message, click on Domain Status tab.

Select the Domain Status as active,  click on Update button.
Click on Refresh button to see the Dispatcher status as ACT (Active)

With this the Integration Broker configuration is complete.

    Thanks for the blog!
    If you are integrating between 2 ps systems, will each one have t0o own gateway or will it be on only one of the P/s instances.
    Can we have a gateway on a standalone webserver independent of the w/s for the 2 p/s instances which we are trying to integrate ?

    You have to have a gateway for each PeopleSoft instances. Gateway is specific to the PeopleSoft instance as in the gateway configuration properties we give the the jolt port number which is unique to that PS instance. Also for the same reason, no stand alone gateway across the PS instances.

    Thanks for your comment.

    It is really not clear when you say you need to integrate hrms9.0 and peopletools 8.49. Please specify what is that you are trying to integrate. What is the PeopleTools you have for hrms 9.0 and what module is having PeopleTools 8.49?

    I am trying to integrate Peoplesoft HCM 8.49 to ELM 9.0 ( 8.49 )
    i have set the Gateway URL as the same <http: machine name. portnumber/PSIGW/PeoplesoftListeningConnector.
    however when i try to ping this gateway (ELM gateway sinceit is at a higer instance) a new window comes up with page cannot be displayed…
    any ideas? are there somethings which we need to check…
    the webserver is on…and i do get the BEa home page console when i give the webservername.portname on the browser…

    does Gateway URL for HCM works fine?

    YES , the URL for HCM works fine. It is not the typical webserver. port number.. The url in HCM is from a parrlllel server, but the ELM instance is a fresh instance which has been installed.
    Is there a way i can check the exact location of the integration gateway???? during installation is there an option where u can setup the integration gateway seperately???

    appreciate your response

    I think the ELM weblogic server is not installed properly. You can check for the following folder

    There is no option to setup the integration gateway separately. Try reinstalling weblogic server again.

    We are using JMS Target Connector and the JMS provider is IBM WebSphere MQ. Every time when the MQ has to be bounced due to applying patches, we have to bounce the PIA for the JMS Target Connector lost connection to the MQ. Do you have the same experience? If you do, do you know any patches from PeopleSoft?

    do you know what is the purpose of the integration gateway, is it useful for a vanilla implementation for financials 9?

    If you are getting any feed from any external system, you may need Integration broker. It may not be necessary for vanilla implmentation for financials 9.

    Yes we do not have any feed from external system, it just there is a lot of talk about Integration Broker, that I thought it was something we need it to have implemented.

    Question regarding PeopleTools versions and IB integration. I have to configure an HRMS app on Peopletools 8.5 to both a FIN app on Ptools 8.4x and a second FIN app on Ptools 8.5. Can I configure IB between two PSFT applications at different PeopleTools versions?

      Yes, you can do it.
