Party Data Model

The S_PARTY table is the base table for all of the parties listed in Table 22: Person (Contact), User, Employee, Partner User, Position, Account, Division, Organization, Partner Organization, Household, User List, and Access Group.

For each party record stored in the S_PARTY table, the value of the PARTY_TYPE_CD column denotes the party type. Along with the party type, extension tables provide the primary differentiation between the different parties.

For information about how joins are used to draw data from multiple tables into a single business component—such as is done for Employee, Account, and other business components for party-type data, see Configuring Siebel Business Applications.

In Figure 19, the base table and extension tables that make up the party data model are shown within the Party boundary (the dark box). The tables shown outside of the Party boundary are used to define relationships among parties. Sections that follow illustrate how the party data model applies to various particular parties.
