Costpoint Extensibility Case Studies
CP711 – Employee Demographic CSV From UI (Deltek Enterprise Cloud)
The customer needed to retrieve employee demographic information for Plansource in a specific CSV file format. An Extensibility Action and Message(s) were created, along with a Java Class, that generated the required result set and file format for the customer. The file was placed in the File Download menu within Costpoint for the Customer to easily access it.
CP711 – Processed Expenses to A/P Vouchers
A series of Extensibility Applications, Result Sets, Actions and Messages were created that allowed customers to create mapping areas within Costpoint and trigger two-way interactions with 3rd party systems. Web Services (REST/JSON) and Costpoint Web Services (SOAP/XML) API’s were leveraged to accomplish this.
CP711 – Application/Module Design for Wildcard Assignments & Integration File
The customer needed to assign Contract Approval Amounts per Project, Employee, Account and Account Reference. Although the Project/Employee/Amounts were required, due to the number of Employee/Project/Account/Reference combinations the customer requested to have the ability to assign the mapping at various high levels and then have the interface build the appropriate lower levels as needed in the transfer file. An Extensibility Application, Module, Action and Message(s) were created, along with a series of Java Classes, to accomplish this.
TE10 Resources – Auto assign License and Employee Groups
An action that helps streamline the onboarding process for hiring new Employees or Subcontractors. For every TE10 Employee Resource that is Active, the action assigns a Seat License and, depending on whether they are an Employee or Subcontractor, assigns them to the appropriate Employee Groups. A modification was requested so that if the TE10 Employee/Subcontractor is Active and already assigned to an Employee Group, but does not have a Seat License currently, to exclude them from a Seat license assignment. This modification allowed the customer to temporarily remove Seat licenses for those employees that are either on extended leave, or for other temporary reasons. An Extensibility Action and Messages were created, along with a Java Class, to accomplish this.
CP711 – Project CLIN Assignments (Deltek Essentials Cloud)
The customer requirement was to mass update Project CLIN information within Costpoint on the Deltek Essentials Cloud. Sand Solutions developed an executable for the customer to schedule, or run real-time, that consumed a text file or rates and uploaded them into Costpoint Web Services (SOAP/XML) API’s.
