Reviewing Siebel UI Objects Affected by Incorporate Custom Layout

Upgrades from: All Supported Siebel releases.This topic applies only to upgrades using the Incorporate Custom Layout (ICL) feature.

Environments: Development environment only.

Platforms: Windows, UNIX, IBM z/OS.

Reputility log section: "Issue 8: List of the items affected by PCL."

This topic is part of an upgrade process. See How to Perform a Siebel Database Upgrade.

If you selected Incorporate Custom Layout (ICL) for the merge, the postmerge utilities list all the UI objects that were affected by the ICL feature in the reputility log. Use this list to identify the screens, views, and applets you want to review when testing the UI.

The list has two parts:

  • "UI elements changed between prior Siebel Release and current Siebel Release." This part lists the screens, views, and applets that have UI changes in the new release. If you selected ICL during the merge, these changes are not reflected in the UI. Instead, the UI for the release you are upgrading from has been preserved.
  • "UI elements changed between prior Siebel Release and prior customer implementation." This part lists your customizations. The list includes screens, views, and applets you modified as well as those you created. These customizations are included in the merged repository. If you selected ICL for the merge, the UI for the customizations is the same as the release from which you are upgrading.

The log is located here:



SIEBEL_TOOLS_INSTALL_DIR is the directory where Siebel Tools is installed.
