Validating Objects Using the Object List Editor

Siebel Tools includes an option that reviews objects and validates them using a set of predefined rules, such as checking for invalid object references.

To validate an object

  1. In the Object List Editor, select the object or objects you want to validate.
  2. Right-click and then choose Validate, or choose Tools > Validate Object.

    The Validate dialog box appears.

  3. Click Options.

    The Validation Options dialog box appears.

  4. Select the validation rules to enforce by selecting a row and clicking Enforce or Ignore.
  5. In the Time Filter area, limit the objects you want to validate by doing one of the following:
    • Select the Last validated check box. This option validates objects that have been changed since the last time validation was run.
    • Select the Custom check box and enter a date and time. This option validates objects that have been changed since the date and time entered.
  6. In the Action area, use the following check boxes to define the actions to take during the validation process:
    • Do not report warnings. When this is selected, only errors are reported, not warnings. The Enforce field for warnings is set to No.
    • Abort validation after. Use this option to abort the validation process after a specified number of errors.
  7. Click OK.

    The Validation Options dialog closes.

  8. In the Validate dialog box, click Start.

    The Errors list displays violations of the currently enforced rules, as shown in Figure 17.
