Designing the Advisor Configuration Table
When you design a Configuration table, you create columns that reference each Feature table. Use these columns to choose configurations for your features in edit view.
This task is a step in Process of Creating Advisor Configuration Tables.
To design the Advisor pageset Configuration table
- Open the Configuration table you want to design and select the Designer tab.
- In the Designer form, click New.
A new row appears.
- Enter the sequence number for the configurations. This number determines the order in which the columns appear in the Configuration editor.
- From the picklist, select a name for the column.
For example, if you want to include the COLOR Feature table values in your Configuration table, select the column name COLOR.
For output columns:
- If you are mapping to a business component rather than a Feature table, select the business component field from the picklist.
- If you are mapping to a class rather than a Feature table, select the class attribute from the picklist.
- Select the column type.
For basic modeling, enter:
- Select a business component. This step is optional.
NOTE: If you select a business component and field, you cannot select a class and attribute. These options are mutually exclusive. You cannot use business components for subtable columns or the RULE column.
This column maps to the selected column (business component) in the Siebel database. For more information on business components, see Using Siebel Tools.
- If you selected a business component in Step 6, click Field Name to open a picklist and select a field name from the business component. This step is optional.
- Select a class. This step is optional.
NOTE: If you select a class and attribute, you cannot select a business component and field. These options are mutually exclusive.
This column maps to the selected Siebel class. For more information about classes and attributes, see Using Siebel Tools.
- If you selected a class in Step 8, select an attribute.
- Check the Shared field to reference one row ID in a business component. This step is optional.
All columns in the Table Designer that reference the same business component and have the Shared field selected are populated with data when a value is selected for any one of them in the Table Editor.
For example, if you add the following four columns to your Configuration table and they all reference the Contact business component:
Then when you switch to Edit View and select a value for the Organization column, values for Name, Phone, and Address are automatically filled in.
- Enter any notes and click Save.
