Upgrade Planning for Siebel Employee Relationship Management (ERM)
Upgrades from: Siebel 7.0.x and 7.5.x.
Platforms: Windows, UNIX, IBM z/OS.
Siebel 7.7 ERM introduced important changes to workflows, Siebel Training, Microsite management, and Group News.
Siebel 7.5.3 included approval business process workflows in the Sample database. If you activated these workflows, or created workflows containing approval steps, you must manually upgrade these workflows.
In previous releases, the product catalogs containing Siebel Training courses were of type Buying. Siebel 7.7 provides a new catalog type called Training. If you have catalogs that contain both Siebel Training products and other kinds of products, revise these catalogs so that they contain only Siebel Training products. This prevents nontraining products from being moved to the training catalog during upgrade.
Microsite and Group News
If you have created customized microsite or Group News page sections, you must revise the associated business component and applet definition.
