Setting Required PIM Domain Fields and Defaults

You can set which PIM domain fields require a value, and must specify a default value for each required field.

When the user creates a new contact, appointment, employee, or to do record in Siebel Business Applications, SSSE synchronizes the record with the Exchange Server only if either the administrator has specified a default value to use when the field is empty, or if the Siebel record includes values to synchronize with all Microsoft Exchange fields that require them.

NOTE:  In any individual Microsoft Exchange record, the user can change the value of the field from the default value to another value, but only an administrator can choose a different value to be assigned as a default.

This task is a step in Process of Configuring Siebel and PIM Domain Characteristics.

The following procedure describes how to specify that a PIM field requires a value, and how to provide a default value for that field.

To set required PIM domain fields and defaults

  1. Navigate to the Administration - PIM Server Integration screen, then the PIM Domains view.
  2. In the PIM Domains list, select the domain for which you want to set required fields.
  3. In the PIM Domain Fields list, select the field you want to make required.
  4. Select the Required check box.

    NOTE:  If Required field is not visible, to make it visible click Menu and choose Columns Displayed.

  5. In the Default Value field, enter the value you want to use as the default value.

    If the Default Value field contains the value Not Set, then the user must enter a string value; no default value is established.
