The anonymous user is a record in the Siebel Database and, if you implement external user authentication, a corresponding record in the external directory of users. The anonymous user is a component in user authentication, anonymous browsing, and self-registration. For applications that allow anonymous browsing, the anonymous user provides visibility of the pages for which you allow anonymous browsing.
You should set up your user authentication architecture before configuring an application for user access. Therefore, the anonymous user should already exist in your Siebel Database and in your directory.
The responsibility that is assigned to a user record in the database contains a list of views to which the user has access. You must confirm that the anonymous user that you use for your Siebel application includes an appropriate responsibility so that unregistered users can see the views you intend them to see.
If you choose to use a seed anonymous user in your authentication setup, then you should verify that its seed responsibility includes the views you want to provide for anonymous browsing. For example, if you use the GUESTCST seed user for a Siebel customer application, then you should verify that its responsibility, Web Anonymous User, includes the required views. If the responsibility does not include your required views, then you can do one of the following:
For information about creating a responsibility or adding views to a responsibility, see Configuring Access Control.
For information about assigning a responsibility to a user, see Internal Administration of Users.
For information about seed data, see Seed Data.
