About Siebel Search


Siebel Search is a text-retrieval tool that allows Siebel eBusiness Applications users to perform full-text searches across Siebel records and files found inside and outside the Siebel application structure. Users of the Search Center, an intuitive user interface, can perform complex searches from anywhere within their employee and partner Siebel eBusiness Application. Search results are ordered by relevancy and sorted according to rank. Personalized visibility rules can be applied to search results so each user will only view search results to which they have been given access. Documents and database records found by the search can be previewed in the browser or launched in their native application.

Siebel Search is included with every license for Siebel eBusiness Applications. Siebel Advanced Search, a separately licensed product, includes and expands the basic Boolean capabilities of Siebel Search, allowing customers to deploy natural language search capabilities like synonym, term proximity control, and word stemming as well as automatic spell checking and the user-defined thesaurus.

NOTE:  Certain Hummingbird products (Hummingbird Search Server) are included in the Siebel Search product. A license to these Hummingbird products is included with every license of the Siebel Search. Siebel eBusiness Applications use license key numbers to allow your organization to access the products you have licensed. We are providing you with license keys only for the software programs and documentation for which you have acquired a license, as set forth in your company's license agreement with Siebel Systems, Inc. Software programs and documentation are Siebel "Confidential Information" and should be treated as such in accordance with applicable terms of your company's license agreement with Siebel. The license keys for Hummingbird found in this guide have been generated for you. Your company's license agreement with Siebel Systems, Inc. sets forth the permitted uses of these license keys, which include, but are not limited, to requiring that you use these license keys only in combination with Siebel Programs and not on a stand alone basis.
