Adding a Dock Object Table to an Existing Dock Object
You can add a new dock object table to an existing dock object. If the user possess access to the parent record in the existing table, then Siebel Remote downloads records from the new dock object table.
The Docking Wizard adds new dock object visibility rules for a predefined dock object. Siebel Remote uses the new dock object visibility rules to determine to download or not download records from an existing table to the Remote user. This technique is appropriate in the following situations:
- If the new table acts as a parent to the primary table of another, limited visibility dock object.
- If the new table includes a foreign key to the primary table of another limited visibility dock object.
To add a dock object table to an existing dock object
- Complete Step 1 through Step 4.
- In the Tables list, right-click the record, and then choose the Docking Wizard menu item.
For example, right-click the CX_TEST_PRI table. You must choose an existing extension table that includes the CX_ prefix in the name column.
- In the Add Table to Dock Object dialog box, choose the Add the Table to an Existing Dock Object option.
- Choose an entry from the Dock Object list.
Siebel Tools displays a list of all Dock Objects that contain tables to which the new table includes a foreign key.
- Choose an entry from the Source Column list.
This list allows you to choose a column from the new table that is a foreign key to the parent table that is contained in the chosen Dock Object Table. Typically, Siebel Tools only displays one column, but there might be more in some situations.
If you choose the Source Column, then Siebel Tools displays a value in the Target Table field.
- Click Next, review your changes, and then click Finish.
Siebel Tools creates a dock object table object and then displays it in the Dock Object Tables list.
- Verify that Siebel Tools created the new objects.
