File Object Move (FOM) Information

File Object Moves are used when moving a file object (SQR, SQC, etc.) to the fileshare in the data center where a Peoplesoft instance can access it. In non-production instances, developers have the ability to perform these moves themselves. Once testing and validation is complete, the developer submits' a FOM request in order to have the file moved into the production environment.


The current deadlines (updated September 9, 2013) are as follows:

FOMs are performed daily as needed. They are moved into Production within two hours of all approvals.


FOM Submission Process Flow these instructions as Word doc

After an SQR is validated and ready to move into PRD, the developer should change the name of the SQR in the Campus Repository directory (T:\pstech\Developers\CampusProduction\CS_9.0\cmp_sqr) by adding the version number to the filename in the form of .###. For instance, if the file being submitted is the first revision to the file, the current file in the Campus Repository should be renamed from example.sqr to example.001.sqr. Then the new file should be moved into both the Campus Repository and the FOM directory (T:\pstech\Developers\2FOM).

An email should be sent to,, and the functional and technical approver for the SQR. The email subject must include the following:

  • “SQR FOM Request” – text describing the request.
