Setting Up Developers as Mobile Web Clients

After setting up developers as Siebel Employees, you must register developers as mobile Web clients. This provides Siebel Remote with the information it needs to create a local database file for the developer and populate it with the appropriate data.

To register a developer as a new mobile Web client

  1. Log in to your Siebel application using an account (for example, SADMIN) with access to the Administration - Siebel Remote screen.

    NOTE:  Although Siebel Remote is not used for the check-in and check-out of projects, you must set up developers as mobile Web clients because Siebel Remote uses this information to retrieve the local database during initialization.

  2. From the application-level menu, choose Site Map > Administration - Siebel Remote > Mobile Clients.

    The Mobile Client view appears with mobile Web clients for the Parent Server displayed.

  3. In the Parent Server form, choose the appropriate parent node.
  4. In the Mobile Clients list, click New.
  5. Complete the fields in the following table.
    Example Value

    Mobile Client


    Enter the mobile Web client name in uppercase letters, with a maximum of eight characters. The User ID makes a good mobile Web client name. The name cannot include spaces, periods, or other invalid characters for a DOS filename. It can contain only single-byte, alphanumeric characters, and the underscore (_) and hyphen (-) characters.

    User ID


    This value is used to log into the local database during initialization.

    Routing Model


    This value identifies the routing model to which the mobile Web client belongs. The MOBILE CLIENT - EXTRACT ONLY model does not allow synchronization. It is used simply for a snapshot of data, which is appropriate in the case of a developer.

    For more detailed information about mobile Web clients, routing models, language preference, and Siebel Remote, read Siebel Remote and Replication Manager Administration Guide.
