Retrieval and Distribution

Note: You must have security access for files starting with PROD.F48.AGYxxx (where xxx = Agency Number) to access these reports. To request access, contact your agency security coordinator.

Technical Staff ‘Get’ Option

Technical staff at your agency can ‘get’ the .CSV report files from the Comptroller mainframe server using the free version of BlueZone available from the Comptroller’s office (login required) or secure file transfer protocol (SFTP).

Technical staff should save the report files to an in-house server/PC accessible to the end user. Preserve the .CSV extension when you ‘get’ files to transfer to the agency server. It is the responsibility of your agency to distribute the report files to the appropriate agency staff.

End User ‘Get’ Option

The end user at your agency with appropriate security can also directly ‘get’ the report files from the Comptroller server using SFTP. They would use the Bluezone Procedures to Access HRIS Exception File via SFTP (Comptroller user ID required) for instructions.
