Allowing New Fields to Be Used in Loyalty Promotion Criteria

If you configure the application to add a new field, for example to the Member or Transaction record, it is not automatically available for us in promotion criteria. This section describes how to add a new field that is available in promotion criteria.

To add a new field used in a transaction, do the following:

  • Decide what type of attribute you must use in the criteria. For more information about types of attributes, see Creating Attributes for Loyalty.
  • Using Siebel Tools, add the field that attribute will be based on to the appropriate business components, as shown in Table 16. For example, if you want to use a Transaction Attribute in the criteria, add the field to the business component LOY Transaction and LOY Engine Transaction.

  • Using Siebel Loyalty, navigate to the Administration - Data > List of Values view and add the appropriate value:
    • In the Type field, query Query for the appropriate LOV type for this attribute, as shown in Table 16. For example, if you want to use a Transaction Attribute in the criteria, query for LOY_ATTRIB_FIELDS_TXN.
    • Add a new record. In the Type field, add this same LOV type. In the Display Value and Language-Independent Code, add an entry that exactly matches the name of the new field that you added to the business component.
    • Click the Clear Cache button to refresh the cache.
  • Now you can create an attribute based on this new field, as described in Creating Attributes for Loyalty.
