EIM Export Process

To export tables of data, EIM performs a sequence of tasks. Each task involves multiple passes; at least one pass is required for each EIM table included in the process.

To export data to EIM tables, EIM performs the following steps:

  1. EIM initializes EIM tables for export.

    If clear interface Table in the configuration file is true, all rows with the specified batch number are deleted. Otherwise, a warning is issued if rows already exist with the specified batch number. The default configuration file is default.ifb.

  2. It uses export parameter expressions in the configuration file to locate and export table rows:
    • If export all rows is true, ignore any export matches parameters and export all rows.
    • If export all rows is false, use export matches parameters to locate specific rows.

      Set if_row_stat to exported for rows that are successfully exported.

  3. For parent tables, EIM locates child table rows and exports them to their corresponding EIM tables.

NOTE:  Transaction logging does not occur during export operations because Siebel base table values are not modified.
