Upgrade Considerations

This section highlights key considerations when upgrading from earlier versions of the Sparkrock solution.

Upgrade Considerations for 9.07


When you upgrade to this version:

  1. Our Finance Team needs to add Sparkrock Foundation granule to your license. Sparkrock Foundation holds all the new enhancements we did to the technical release process to make it much more faster and easier to use.
  2. Your Project Manager needs to have your license regenerated and applied to your test and live environments.


With this release we are introducing two add-on updates:

  1. The Frontline Absence & Time Entry Integration (previously AESOP) is now an add-on. In the past it was a separate module. You will need to have the add-on activated to use this feature.
  2. ONE-T HRIS Export is part of the ON K12 Benefits Integration add-on. If you have the add-on activated previously for the OTIP integrations, no additional steps are required.

Setup and Template Changes

  1. You must update your Budget Journal import templates to include two new dimensions.
  2. You must run Insert Other Standard Templates from Workflow Templates to add the newly released templates to the list.
  3. If you have modified the HR Reason Codes, HR Process Functions and/or HR Functions in any way, running Load Standard Data will overwrite those customizations.  In the case of customizations, the new setups for Mass Leave and Return will need to be manually entered.

Table Changes

Table 23020351 Schedule Reason Code was relocated to ID 23020700 in this release. The table at ID 23020351 should be removed before upgrading from version 9.06.
