PeopleSoft 9.2 Ongoing Upgrades

December 3, 2018

PeopleSoft Financials update successfully applied to production

PeopleSoft Financials Update 5.40 was successfully applied to production (FPROD). These systems are now available:

 The system cache was cleared as part of the release process, so initial performance may be slower than normal the first time you use the application after the release.

Clearing Browser Cache 
ITS recommends that all users clear their Temporary Internet Files (browser cache) before logging back into the system. It is highly recommended that all users clear their browser cache often, especially after an update is applied to the Production database. Instructions are attached on how to clear your browser cache

New Instructions for Accessing GeorgiaFIRST
University System of Georgia (USG) institutions currently using GeorgiaFIRST Financials will be required to use Single Sign-on (SSO) Authentication to access all PeopleSoft Financials services.

 SSO is already required to log in and access other services (e.g., OneUSG Connect - Payroll) using your local credentials (i.e., ID and password) assigned by SSU ITS Department. 

 Prior to logging into Financials for the first time following release 5.40, all active GeorgiaFIRST users should complete the following steps: 

  1. Delete all existing GeorgiaFIRST Financials browser bookmarks/favorites.
  2. Create a new browser bookmark/favorite to the GeorgiaFIRST Financials website:
  3. Use the available sign in options on the right side of the home page to access GeorgiaFIRST

These changes have already taken effect and will be the only way you can access the system.  Please refer to this job aid for more information:



If you have questions or need additional information about the Single Sign-on requirement, please contact the SSU helpdesk at
