Siebel Configuration – An Overview

If Siebel could be visualized as human body then configuration has to be the heart of that body. Without configuration Siebel cannot work and configuration is what comprises of 70% of Siebel Development.

Siebel configuration is done using an IDE provided by Siebel i.e. Siebel Tools. If you want to be a successful Siebel professional then you need have strong configuration skills. Configuration is mostly based on concepts and facts. Once you have understanding of the concepts and facts properly then you wouldn’t face any problems. I would like to like to give example of computer networking here to explain the above statement.

“In networking a RJ-45 jack is required for UTP cable to connect to system. Once we have this knowledge it doesn’t change it doesn’t matter how many times you perform that task it is always going to remain same. Similar case is with Siebel configuration once you know how to create an Applet you are done. It doesn’t matter how many times you create and Applet the procedure will remain the same. Though there are several ways but they all work in predefined way and once you know them they will always be same.”

Siebel Configuration is a little different from Siebel scripting. Unlike scripting, in which everybody has his own unique ways to approach things Siebel configuration works on predefined set of rules that have been decided by Siebel. So you can be successful at Siebel configuration even if don’t have strong programming skills but as a downside Configuration and Scripting goes hand in hand. So, the chances that you will be working on configuration alone are pretty slim.

Siebel Configuration is one area which comprises of 50% of interview questions. So, when you want to appear for interview make sure you are up to date with your configuration concepts and fundamentals. Main responsibility of a Siebel configurator is to work on business layer of Siebel and implement business logic and business rules.

Hope this helps you to point into right direction.

  3. Hi Govind,

    What do you mean when you say you want to pass the parameters in applet through business service? Are you trying to say that you want to update a certain field in an applet? If that is the case, just use the SetFieldValue method in escript.

    Sample eScript syntax: SetFieldValue(“FieldName”);

  7. Hello..
    Obvious Configuration plays a big role in Siebel Customization.I am impressed with User Property of Siebel configuration that is for creating a specialized behavior in Siebel Objects.prominent objects have classes .these classes have some variables /methods.
    We can use these variables to produce a specialized behavior,these variables are called User property.We can use Classe’s method in scripting also.
    Many req could complete through user property.no need to go for scripting.
