Use mobile assignment to reassign people based on changes uploaded by Mobile Web Clients. Siebel Assignment Manager assigns objects after a Mobile Web Client synchronizes with the Siebel Server and uploads assignment requests or any changes to objects and assignment rules. Depending on the configuration of Generate Triggers, the Workflow Monitor detects these changes and activates Assignment Manager to dynamically reassign affected objects.
NOTE: If a Mobile Web Client sends an assignment request to the Siebel Server while running mobile assignment, the request is sent as an asynchronous request. Because of this, the request does not override the Keep Manual Assign property.
NOTE: If you are running interactive assignment, make sure the Server Request Broker server component is running. For instructions on checking the status of a server component, see Siebel System Administration Guide.
Reporting mode provides the assignment administrator the ability to perform trial assignments and what-if analysis. When you are running Assignment Manager in reporting mode, assignments are written into results tables, known as reporting tables, rather than into the actual database tables. Reporting mode allows the administrator the opportunity to preview possible assignment before actual assignments are made.
For more information about reporting tables, see Configuring Siebel Assignment Manager to Use Reporting Tables and Columns.
You can run Assignment Manager in reporting mode either from the GUI or using the Server Manager command-line interface (srvrmgr). In either mode, you initiate a reporting mode request using either the Assignment Manager (AsgnSrvr) or the Batch Assignment (AsgnBatch) server component. You pass the Reporting Mode (RptMode) parameter, specifying one of the following values:
NOTE: By default, reporting is turned off. That is, when the Regular Assignment parameter is set to FALSE, no assignment takes place. However, irrespective of whether reporting is turned on or off, Assignment Manager can write evaluation results to actual assignment tables.
Using Siebel Tools, you specify key columns through properties on the assignment object. Assignment Manager reads these key columns to differentiate between candidates. Assignment Manager stamps these key values; that is, Assignment Manager sets the key value for each record, to keep track of what employees, positions, or organizations are added in a specific assignment execution.
For example, the following command tells Assignment Manager to execute in reporting delta mode, where it merges the team from this run to the current team in the regular tables, and then writes the results to the reporting table. However, it only executes the rule against the Account 1 account, updates or changes positions that have the key value 12-RG2, and stamps all new positions with the value 12-RG2.
The Key Column in the S_ACCNT_POSTN results table holds either the rule group ID or a key value to distinguish candidates. You use the UseKeyVal parameter to indicate whether Assignment Manager uses a key value to filter and stamp candidates. The choices for UseKeyVal are:
For example, assume you run AsgnSrvr with Rule Group 1 (RG1), and the result is that Position 1 is added to Account 1. Next, you run Rule Group 2 (RG2) and Position 2 is added to Account 1. If you do not want a second AsgnSrvr run to touch or change anything from the first run, you run AsgnSrvr with the UseKeyVal parameter set to either Rule Group or Key Value.
