Importing Organizations That Contain the BU_ID Column

Base tables in the Siebel Data Model that are enabled for multiple organizations contain the BU_ID foreign key column. This column points to a business organization defined in the S_BU base table. Examples of such base tables include S_PROD_INT, S_PRI_LST, and S_DOC_AGREE.

NOTE:  For more information on multi-org, see the section on access control in Security Guide for Siebel eBusiness Applications.

During the import process, if the value supplied in the EIM table does not resolve to a valid business organization, EIM by default will continue to import the record with the BU_ID set to the default value defined in the base table. If you want EIM to report import failures for such instances, set the parameter SKIP BU_ID DEFAULT parameter to TRUE in the .IFB file (the default value for this parameter is FALSE).

If you have not implemented multi-org capability or if you will not be using organizations, then use the Default Organization, a predefined organization in the S_BU base table.
