Log4j and Log4shell Vulnerabilities

With the recent announcement of security vulnerabilities in the Apache Log4j and Log4Shell logging libraries, we have investigated Phire’s exposure and here is our recommendation.


Phire does not make use of the Log4j or Log4shell libraries, so based on that we are not providing any patches or making any changes to our delivery.


However, since Phire runs in a PeopleTools environment, we are recommending that customers follow Oracle recommendations for mitigating the risk in the web/app/prcs server configurations, outlined in Doc ID 2828073.1


We’ll continue to monitor the situation.


Error: User does not have permission to perform Copy to File (257,306)

Using Data Migration Workbench in Phire to produce a data set, got the above error. Is it referring to the Phire super-user or the individual using DMW?

How to remove a password from the User Profile ?

A user by mistake was assigned a password in the User Profile screen.  But actually that user should have been using a password, the same that he use to log in to the network (Active Directory).

In other words, the user is login into our network with one password, then is login into Phire with another password. And we as admin don’t allow that.

So how can I remove the password from the User Profile ? so the user use the same Active Directory password ?

Access to Change Requests on different domain ID

Currently, we have two teams each with a domain ID they own. Team A has domain ID DM1 and Team B has DM2. Team A can only search for the change requests under their domain ID. Is there a way for Team A to search for the change requests under Team B’s domain ID?

New passwords, entered into Phire, not matching with actual DB and PS passwords

We have a requirement to update our PeopleSoft system passwords, including the Peoplesoft connect ID.  after updating the connect ID password and validating Peoplesoft was working properly I went back to update the Phire configuration to use the same password.  After saving and the going back to test I found that the encrypted password from Phire does not match what Peoplesoft says it should.

I ran another test by reentering the exact same PeopleSoft password, no actual change just reentered, and see that the encrypted password does not match what it was previously.

How can I get Phire to encrypt the passwords the same way PeopleSoft is encrypting them so that Phire works.

this is critical since I can no longer migrate projects through Phire since the passwords are not being accepted.

What are the these options used for?  Do they prevent users from making object or script changes?

How to setup so nobody can create a new CR using a particular CR Type?

First, leave the CR Type “active”, so that it continues to be visible in the searches.  Then go to the Row Level Security component (Phire Architect > Security Administration > Row Level Security) and remove the permission to “Create New CR” for that CR Type.  You’ll need to do that for each role that might have access to create a new CR.  In the end, the users will be able to search for and open the existing CRs with that type, but nobody will be able to create a new one.


How to enable developers to download files from different environments?

Developers can access files (SQRs, COBOLs, etc.) that are residing on the servers for the various environments from the Objects page within the Change Request. First, the developer needs to add the file name to the CR Object list. Then to download or upload the file from/to an environment, the developer needs to click the download or upload button next to the file name in the CR Objects. The prompt page will offer a list of databases available to the developer.

The list is controlled by setup in the Domain Setup Wizard on Step 14. Workflow Databases (found at Phire Architect > Architect Administration > Domain Setup Wizard).  There you will find the “File Upload” and “Object View/Download” options listed for each database within each CR Type.  The file upload option is further limited by “Restore Object” security and the lock status of the particular file within Phire.
