About the Entity Relationship Designer

The Entity Relationship Designer is a visual modeling tool that allows you to diagram your business entities, represent the relationships between them, and then map them to Siebel objects, such as business components, links, and joins.

The Entity Relationship Designer is typically used by both Business Analysts and Developers. Business analysts diagram a customer's business and then developers or technical architects map the entities in the diagrams to Siebel objects in the repository.

When mapping entities and relationships in the diagram to Siebel objects, the choice of objects to choose includes only those that have characteristics that match the context described in the diagram.

For information on creating entity relationship diagrams and mapping them to Siebel objects, see Configuring Siebel eBusiness Applications.
