Configuring Assignment Objects for Dynamic Candidates

Dynamic candidates are the potential assignable candidates obtained from related business entities when assigning an object. The Dynamic Candidate Component object properties define the dynamic candidate name, team type, and so on.

Using Siebel Tools, you must first modify the properties of the Dynamic Candidate object type.

This task is a step in Process of Defining Dynamic Candidates.

Use the following procedure to configure the Dynamic Candidate object type for dynamic candidates.

To configure an assignment object for dynamic candidates

  1. Start Siebel Tools.
  2. In the Object Explorer, expand Workflow Policy Object, and in the Workflow Policy Objects window, select the object you want to configure.

    TIP:   If Workflow Policy Object is not visible in the Object Explorer, you can enable it in the Development Tools Options dialog box (View > Options > Object Explorer).

  3. Lock the project for the object by choosing Tools > Lock Project (or Alt+L).

    The pencil icon appears in the W field to indicate the project for the object is locked.

  4. In the Object Explorer, expand Assignment Object, and then select Dynamic Candidate.
  5. In the Dynamic Candidates window, choose Edit > New Record.
  6. In the new record, enter values for the relevant information.

Table 39 provides descriptions of some of the Dynamic Candidate object properties.

Table 39. Dynamic Candidate Object Properties


The name of the dynamic candidate team. For example, Activity: Asset Team.

Display Name

An alternative name to display to the Siebel Client. This property is optional. If no display name is provided, then the value in the Name field is used.

By default, this is set to NULL.

Display Name - String Reference

The display name for this team appearing in the Person Candidate Source or the Organization Candidate Source list of value (LOV) fields on the assignment rule applet.

NOTE:  You must first create a string reference in the Symbolic String object, and then set the Display Name - String Reference to the symbolic string you created.

Display Name - String Override

This property allows users to enter a display name without entering a symbolic string. The value in this property is what is displayed in the UI, and it overrides any other display name entries. However, because this value has no symbolic string, it is not translatable. For this reason, use caution when assigning an override.


Indicates if the object is active or inactive.

By default, this value is set to FALSE.

Team Table Attribute Id Column

The name of the column in the team table that contains the attribute ID, that joins to the Attribute Id column.

Team Table Candidate Id Column

The name of the column in the team table that contains the candidate ID, the foreign key to the candidate base table.

Team Type

Indicates whether or not the candidate team is employee-, organization-, or position-based.

NOTE:  As of version 7.8, the following Dynamic Candidate object type properties are no longer used: Attribute Id Column, Attribute Table, Object Id Column, Score Column, Team Table, Team Table Attribute Id Column, and Team Table Candidate Id Column. However, these properties remain for upgrade purposes.
