About Upgrading the Siebel Connector for SAP R/3
If you have been using version 6.x of the Siebel Connector for SAP R/3 and have data flows that may be based upon the 6.x data flows, you may need to make the same modifications to use your flows in Siebel 7. The following modifications have been made to 6.x data flows in Siebel 7.
- The AllLangIndependentVals = "Y" user property has been added to the Order - Create SAP Order (Siebel) integration object. This is now required for the Siebel adapter to pick LIVs (Language Independent Values) when the database is non-ENU.
- The Order Item XA business object component has been added to the Order Entry - Get SAP Order Status business object. This is because in Siebel 7 the calculation of the quantity of items has been moved to a separate business component and this business component must be included in the business object on which the integration object is based.
- Picklists and Pickmaps were added to the Delivery Block, Delivery Status, and Pricing Status fields in the Order Entry - Get SAP Order Status Header business component and the Delivery Status field in the Order Entry - Get SAP Order Status Item business component. The PICKMAP user property was set to Y for the four corresponding fields in Order - Get SAP Order Status (Siebel) integration object.
You can also upgrade your 6.x business data flows to work with the new Siebel 7.x infrastructure. The following sections cover the changes you need to make. While this was not required for 7.0, these changes are required for version 7.5.
