This chapter lists the setup tasks that are specific to Siebel Collaboration. Use this chapter in combination with the Applications Administration Guide and the Security Guide for Siebel Business Applications.
The Applications Administration Guide and the Security Guide for Siebel Business Applications cover the setup tasks that are common to all Siebel Business Applications, such as using license keys, defining employees, and defining your company's structure. The Applications Administration Guide also provides the information that you need to perform data administration and document administration tasks.
NOTE: Siebel Collaboration is configurable. For information about configuring Siebel Collaboration, including configuring for other business objects and languages, see Configuring Siebel Collaboration.
When setting up Siebel Collaboration, there are three kinds of user credentials to consider (Table 2).
SharePoint should be configured to use Integrated Windows Authentication (which uses the Windows user credentials for authentication). Make sure that the SharePoint and client machines use the same ADSI source for user authentication.
For the Siebel application, you can use any of the user authentication methods described in the Security Guide for Siebel Business Applications. However, you must make sure that there is a mapping between the Siebel user credentials and the SharePoint user credentials. There are two ways to set up this mapping: ADSI (Active Directory Service Interfaces) and SSO (single sign-on). See Table 3.
