UCPath PUM Upgrade Project UAT Update

A light blue swatch.

As of November 29, the UCPath Center (UCPC), in collaboration with the UCLA cross-functional PUM support team, has completed User Acceptance Testing (UAT) for the PUM upgrade.

We are happy to announce that the majority of the changes identified and tested by the UAT team remain minimal, mostly consisting of minor interface updates and bug fixes!

What’s Changing?

Many of the PUM changes relate to modules UCLA does not use. You heard all about the two UCLA-impacting changes in our September System Integration Testing (SIT) communication, but we now have one more to add to that list:


New Browser Window for Worklist Items, Plus Additional Worklist Refresh Button

  • Current State:
    • Worklist items are displayed in your current browser window. After you perform an action, you are returned to your Worklist.
    • The Worklist's "Refresh" button is located at the bottom of the page.
  • New State with PUM:
    • When viewing in the UCPath Portal view, your Worklist items will open a new browser window.
    • An additional “Refresh” button is now located in the top right of the page.

Impact: Minimal – you can easily navigate back to your Worklist by selecting the original browser window, and the new windows can be closed as needed. The additional “Refresh” button will simply improve the overall Worklist user experience.

What’s Next?

In our April 2021 communication, we promised that we are committed to supporting you through this transition - our Training team is diligently working to update the existing training assets impacted by this new change!

The PUM upgrade project is still on track for a December 2021 go-live, and no major risks have been identified. UCLA and UCPC project teams are analyzing testing data and will soon make a Go/No-Go decision. We will update you when we learn more!

If the project teams decide to move forward with the upgrade, the UCPath system will be unavailable during implementation (Friday, December 10, at 12PM through Monday, December 13, at 6AM).

  • A code freeze is in effect until January 1, 2022 to ensure the system is ready for this exciting step towards UCPath’s future.
