Generating ADM Deployment Units Using a Mid-Level Release

Generating ADM deployment units from repository data types uses the Siebel Tools mid-level release feature. This task creates a .sif file that is used as the deployment unit necessary for the ADM packaging process.

Generating a mid-level release uses the Siebel Tools GUI to complete the task as described in the following procedures.

To generate ADM deployment units using mid-level release at the Siebel Tools GUI

  1. Log in to Siebel Tools, and make sure the changes are checked in.
  2. From the menu bar, navigate to View > Options > General Tab.
  3. Set the date in the Changed Date form.

    This date determines the objects changed after the set date and includes them in the mid-level release.

  4. From the menu bar, navigate to Tools > Generate Mid-Level Release.
  5. In the Generate Mid-level Release dialog, name the release, and click the Generate List button.
  6. Review the repository objects included in the mid-level release and, if necessary, remove any objects from the list by using the Delete key.
  7. Select Export to create the .sif file used as the ADM deployment unit.
  8. Navigate to the Siebel Tools installation directory and the directory with the mid-level release label to locate the .sif file with the mid-level release label. Copy the generated .sif file along with the XML unit descriptor file, which will be used in the ADM package.
