Overview of Parameters in Siebel Application Configuration Files
This appendix includes information about the Siebel application configuration files and some of the parameters that these files might contain. Most of the parameters that are documented here are used by Siebel Business Applications in a Siebel Mobile Web Client or a Siebel Web Client deployment.
NOTE: Not all of the parameters used by Siebel Business Applications are described in this book. Many parameters are primarily described elsewhere on Siebel Bookshelf, while some parameters are not documented on Siebel Bookshelf.
Where you configure parameters for Siebel Business Applications depends on your type of client deployment:
- For a Siebel Mobile Web Client deployment, you configure parameters in a configuration file (.cfg). Examples of configuration files include siebel.cfg, used by Siebel Sales, and uagent.cfg, used by Siebel Call Center. For more information, see About Siebel Application Configuration Files and Editing Siebel Application Configuration Files.
- For a Siebel Web Client deployment, you primarily configure parameters as component parameters for the Application Object Manager component or as named subsystem parameters. In either case, you use the Siebel Server Manager to configure the parameter. For more information, see About Application Object Manager Parameters.
NOTE: Application Object Manager components might also use some parameters in configuration files located on the Siebel Server. For example, the CalDAVService parameter in the section
[HTTP Services], and related parameters, are located in the eai.cfg. These parameters support a CalDAV integration for the Siebel calendar, using Siebel Enterprise Application Integration (EAI). These parameters are used by the EAI Object Manager component.
The remaining topics in this appendix include the following:
- About Siebel Application Configuration Files lists some configuration files and their associated Siebel Business Applications.
- Editing Siebel Application Configuration Files describes how you can edit a Siebel application configuration file.
- Configuration Parameters Index provides a partial list of configuration parameters and provides references to where they are documented in more detail.
In many cases, when you set the equivalent parameter for an Application Object Manager component, for Siebel Web Clients, the alias of the parameter that appears in the Siebel Server Manager GUI is prefixed by CFG. The full parameter name also appears in the GUI.
For example, for Siebel Mobile Web Clients, you set the parameter ApplicationSplashText in the configuration file to determine the text that appears on a splash screen when a user starts a Siebel application. For a Siebel Web Clients, you set the parameter Application Splashtext (alias CFGApplicationSplashText) on the relevant Application Object Manager component.
- Description of Siebel Application Parameters describes some of the parameters that are listed in Configuration Parameters Index.
- Data Source Parameters describes some of the data source parameters that are listed in Configuration Parameters Index.
NOTE: For Siebel Web Clients, many of these parameters can be set as named subsystem parameters for the relevant data source. In many cases, the parameter alias that appears in the Siebel Server Manager GUI is prefixed by DS. For example, the ConnectString parameter that you set in the
[ServerDataSrc] section of an application configuration file appears as Data source Connect String (alias DSConnectString) for the Server Datasource named subsystem in the Siebel Server Manager GUI.
