Specifying Any Optional Table Properties
This task is a step in Process of Configuring External Business Components.
When the table is imported, you may specify additional table properties for the corresponding external table:
- External API Write. Allows you to perform reads directly from the database and have write operations processed by way of a script.
A Boolean property is used to indicate whether or not inserts, updates, or deletes to external tables should be handled by an external API. If this property is set to TRUE, the BusComp_PreWriteRecord and BusComp_PreDeleteRecord events should be scripted to publish the insert, update, or delete operation to an external API.
- Key Generation Business Service. Allows a business service to generate a primary key (Id field) for a business component. If this is not specified, the Siebel application will generate a row_id value for the column that corresponds to the Id system field.
- Key Generation Service Method. Allows a business service method to be invoked when generating a primary key for a business component.
