Reviewing New Siebel UI Aggregate Categories

Upgrades from: Siebel 7.0.x and 7.5.x.

Environments: Development environment only.

Platforms: Windows, UNIX, IBM z/OS.

Reputility log section: "Issue 2: New Aggregate Category Records That Should Be Renamed."

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

The following new properties were added to the Screen View object in Siebel Tools to support new UI navigation introduced in Siebel 7.7:

  • Type (Aggregate Category, Aggregate View, Detail Category, Detail View)
  • Parent Category
  • Category Name
  • Category Default View
  • Display in Page
  • Display in Site Map

For a description of these properties, see Configuring Siebel Business Applications.

If you have created new views or have modified existing views, the postmerge utilities create new Aggregate Category records to support the new properties. The utilities name the new aggregate category records "busobj_name List." For example, a new aggregate category record for the eEvents screen would be named eEvents List.

The reputility log lists the category records that were created by the postmerge utilities. Review the section of the log referenced above and make the following revisions as needed to the listed objects:

  • Revise the Viewbar Text and Menu Text properties in all installed languages as required.
  • Verify that the navigation hierarchy, including sequence numbers, is correct.

The log is located here:



SIEBEL_TOOLS_INSTALL_DIR is the directory where Siebel Tools is installed.
