About Migrating Customizations Between Applications

Application Deployment Manager (ADM) is a feature that automates the process of migrating enterprise customization data (views, responsibilities, assignment rules, and so on) from one Siebel application environment to another. For example, ADM can move customization data from a development environment to a testing environment. ADM eliminates the former process of transferring this data manually.

NOTE:  The term migrating is used in the ADM context as the moving of data from one environment to another. No changes to the data take place during migration.

The bulk of the administrative tasks to migrate data using ADM are performed at the Application Deployment Manager screen in the Siebel application GUI. These tasks are intended for those with Siebel administrator responsibility. The ADM set-up process in the ADM GUI creates a template in which one data type can be migrated on a regular basis, if required. The fundamental structure of this template is the deployment project. The deployment project consists of one or more data types that can be migrated.

The process for migrating ADM involves configuration, GUI set-up, and deployment. See Process for Migrating Customizations Between Applications for further information on this process and links to their tasks.

The following data types are available for migration with ADM:

  • Assignment Rule
  • List of Value (LOV)
  • Public Predefined Query (PDQs)
  • Expense Types
  • Product Feature
  • Product Line
  • Responsibility
  • View
  • State Model
  • User List

These data types are preconfigured in the standard Siebel eBusiness application.
