Requesting Reports in the Siebel Web Client

Users can request reports by using the Reports menu that is located on the application-level toolbar.

To request a report in the Siebel Web Client

  1. In the Siebel client, from the application-level menu, choose Reports.
  2. From the Reports menu, choose the report you want to generate.

In the Reports menu, you can review your previously requested reports by choosing My Reports. For more information, see About the My Reports View.

Using the SOAP protocol, reports submitted from the Siebel Web Clients are run on the exports Server as transient jobs. Reports no longer run as background jobs. In this run now mode, the report is viewed as it is being generated. Using progressive viewing, the first page appears before the entire report is completed.

However, if the report generation fails, an error message will not be available as no completed notification is generated. Use the scheduling function to request the report again to review what is causing the report to fail.
