Adding Views to the Application

Developers create new views through Siebel Tools. In order for the views to become available for administrators to work with, you must add them to the Views screen in the application before you define your business environment.

Example: You want to add an Opportunities view in the Reference screen. In Siebel Tools, you create the view and name it Reference Opportunities. (For details on creating views, see Configuring Siebel Business Applications.) In your Siebel application, you follow the steps below and add the Reference Opportunities view in the View Administration view. After it has been added in both places, the view can be made accessible to the appropriate users. For details about controlling visibility to views, see Security Guide for Siebel Business Applications.

To add customized views to the Siebel application

  1. Navigate to the Administration - Application screen > Views view.
  2. In the Views list, create a new record and complete the necessary fields.

You generally do not need to modify or delete views that are already listed. You would only need to modify a view if its name was changed in Siebel Tools. A view would need to be deleted only if it no longer existed in the data model schema, or if you did not want anyone to have access to it. Instead of deleting views, administrators should remove the views from responsibilities and keep them in the database.

NOTE:  Only visibility-level views can be configured to appear in the Site Map.
