Configuring Task Step Context
You can define the context of a task step to identify the search specification that filters the data on which the step is performed. You do this by configuring a Task Step Context object (a child object of the Task Step object).
For example, if you want to update Opportunities with a lead quality of Poor, you use the update operation of a Siebel Operation step with a Task Step Context object configured accordingly. For a description of the properties of the Task Step Context object, see the Siebel Object Types Reference.
To configure task step context
- In Siebel Tools, navigate to the task that contains the step you want to provide the context for.
- Open task in the Task Designer, and select the appropriate step.
NOTE: The task must be either a Siebel Operation step or a Task View step.
- Click the Task Step Context tab in the Multi Value Property Window.
- In the list area of the Multi Value Property Window, right-click and choose New Record from the pop-up menu.
- Enter a Name for the task step context, and select a Type (Literal or Expression).
- If the context type is Expression, enter the name of the business component to evaluate the expression for the Expression Business Component property.
- Enter a Search Specification for the context.
- (Optional) You can specify a Filter Business Component. This business component provides the group of records on which the context search is performed.
