Developing and Deploying Siebel Business Applications > Setting Up a Developer's Local Database >
Positions represent an actual job position in your organization. Positions determine which records are available to each user. A position can be any appropriate job title, such as the developer's actual job title or simply the word "Developer." For example, assume NREC set up positions for two developers, called Developer 1 and Developer 2.
There are several positions that are part of the seed data that ships with the Siebel product. However, none fit the role of the developer, so you need to create a new position for the users on your development team.
For more information about positions, read Siebel Applications Administration Guide.
NOTE: The position information is used by the Siebel Remote's routing rules and may affect the outcome of a database extraction. For more information, read Siebel Remote and Replication Manager Administration Guide.
