Creating a Root-Level Page

The root-level pages are those pages that appear at the top of the Page Administration Explorer tree. Typically only a few employees should have the responsibilities required to access the Portal Screen Administration view where root-level pages can be created.

In general, you have a screen tab for each of the root-level pages. You can use Siebel Tools to create a screen tab for a new root-level page. For information, see the page tabs topic in Configuring Siebel Business Applications.

Best practice is to standardize on a limited number of these pages in order to keep the top root-level of the explorer tree uncluttered and to restrict the number of screen tabs in the application.

This task is a step in the Process of Microsite Management.

To create a root-level page

  1. Navigate to the Microsite Management (or Administration - Microsite) screen > Portal Screen Administration view.
  2. In the Portal Screen list, create a new record and complete the necessary fields.

    Some fields are described in the following table.



    Name for the root-level page.

    Default View Name

    Determines the Siebel view that the page is based on. For information about creating new views, see Configuring Siebel Business Applications.

    The view that determines the Web template used by this page.

    Access Groups

    Use this field to restrict read and read-write (select Editor field) access to this page.

    If this field is blank there are no restrictions on who can view and edit this page, provided they have the view responsibilities for the template view and the Page Designer view.

    If no editor is specified, all the access groups can edit this page.


    Determines the sequence of the page at the top level of the Page Administration Explorer tree.


    If the root-level page is inactive, the root-level page and its child pages do not appear in the Page Administration view
