Copying UI Files to a New Siebel Environment
Upgrades from: Siebel 7.x using ICL. Also applies to non-ICL upgrades where you have manually revised Web template files or the style sheet file (main.css).
Environments: Production test, production.
Platforms: Windows, UNIX, IBM z/OS.
This topic is part of an upgrade process. See How to Perform a Siebel Database Upgrade.
If you selected Incorporate Custom Layout (ICL) during the repository merge, a special set of Web template files (.swt and .swe) was copied automatically to the
webtempl directory in the Siebel Tools installation used to perform the repository merge. For example, if you selected Siebel 7.5.3, new Web template files that provide the look and feel of 7.5.3 were copied to the
You must copy these files to the Siebel Servers in the production test and production environments.
Customized Web Template Files
When you customize Web template definitions using Siebel Tools, these changes are stored in the Siebel Repository. Siebel Tools does not make changes to the Web template files located in the Siebel Tools installation directory.
If you have manually customized the Web template files in the Siebel Tools installation directory in the development environment, you must copy these files to the Siebel Servers in both the production test and production environments.
Copying Style Sheet Files to a Different Environment
When you customize properties of layout objects such as text fields using Siebel Tools, these changes are stored in the Siebel Repository. Siebel Tools does not make changes to the style sheet file (main.css) located in the Siebel Tools installation directory.
If you have manually customized main.css in the Siebel Tools installation in the development environment, you must copy this file to the Siebel Servers in both the production test and production environments.
You must also copy main.css to the new environment if you have done the following:
If you performed an ICL upgrade and selected Label on Top, you must also copy the style sheet for Quick Print and Print Preview (printmain.css) to the new environment.
To copy style sheet files to a different environment
- In the Siebel Tools installation directory (installdir) in the development environment, locate the style sheet files:
where lang is the installation language, for example
- Copy the style sheet files to the following location on the desired Siebel Servers in the production test or production environment:
To avoid overwriting the existing
printmain.css file, consider changing the existing style sheet's filename before copying in the new one.
- Update the Web server files.
This makes the new style sheet files available to the Web server. To update the Web server files, see Siebel Installation Guide for the operating system you are using. You can update the files using a URL and password or by stopping and restarting the Web server.
