Siebel Systems provides a library of business services that allow Siebel applications to share information with other applications through integration servers. This library is called the Universal Application Network, and its business services are called Application Service Interfaces (ASIs).
There are two ASIs for managing products: External Simple Product and Siebel Simple Product. These are briefly described below. For a full technical description of these ASIs, see Application Services Interface Reference.
This ASI sends information about simple products created in the Siebel system to an external, third-party system. It allows you to create, update, query, and delete a product in the third-party system. This ASI is intended for inclusion in Siebel workflows that automate exporting products. It does not support sending information about customizable products or bundles.
The export feature included in the Siebel Product Administration interface exports basic product information to an XML file and is intended for Siebel-to-Siebel transfers of product records. The External Simple Product ASI exports a much larger set of information about the product.
This ASI receives information about simple products created in third-party systems. It allows users to create, update, query, and delete products in the Siebel system. It ASI is intended for use in automated business processes in third-party systems that need to synchronize the Siebel system to external product masters. This ASI does not support receiving information about customizable products or bundles. The information accepted by this ASI includes the following:
