Primavera Cloud – P6 EPPM integration services
Did you know that Oracle Primavera Cloud integrates with Primavera P6 EPPM (Cloud Services)? Primavera Cloud and Primavera P6 EPPM Cloud are connected through a built-in Primavera Gateway connection that operates through the Integration app of Primavera Cloud. A set of predefined integration services are available that map the fields from Primavera Cloud to P6 and the other way around. Furthermore, you can customize the mapping of both databases and tailor them as needed.
By default, there’s a master-slave relationship between both tools, where a tool of preference is predefined by Oracle per knowledge area or app. Here’s a small overview of the main integration jobs and master-slave roles each tool has. The knowledge areas from top to bottom are Schedule, Resources, Lean and Risk.

Even though some of the integrated fields can be edited within one tool and passed on to the other, Oracle predefined the integration jobs to limit this. A practical example: Primavera P6 EPPM is the scheduling tool of preference. Changes to relationships, dates, durations, etc. can be made within Primavera Cloud, but will not be pushed back by a predefined integration service job. Same for resource assignments and vice versa for risk and lean tasks.
