This product offers comprehensive application management capabilities that help IT organizations simplify the administration and monitoring of their Siebel Enterprise environments. The Application Management Suite for Siebel is composed of the following physical components:

  • Siebel Plug-in (built into Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c)

  • Oracle Real User Experience Insight (RUEI)

The management suite contains a restricted use license of RUEI for use against the core Siebel application. The management suite also includes a restricted use license of Siebel Test Automation (STA) for running synthetic transaction monitoring scripts. The STA license does not cover the use of test automation tools to carry out functional nor load tests against the Siebel application.

Siebel Diagnostic Tool, a standalone utility released with the Siebel Media Pack since Siebel 8.0, is licensed as part of Oracle Application Management Suite for Siebel. All features and capabilities of this tool require the Oracle Application Management Suite for Siebel license.

The following sections discuss the licensed features and links for the Application Management Suite for Siebel as well as the Service Level Management and Configuration Management licensed features and links within this product.
