Revising Siebel Visibility Filters to Display Correctly

Upgrades from: All Supported Siebel releases.

Environments: Development environment only.

Platforms: Windows, UNIX, IBM z/OS.

Reputility log section: "Issue 3: Views that need an applet in View Web Template Item ID 1."

This topic is part of an upgrade process. See How to Perform a Siebel Database Upgrade.

In Siebel 7.7, the Show menu was replaced by a visibility filter. This drop-down menu lists alternative views for displaying records.

The postmerge utilities review the repository and verify that filters are defined correctly. The reputility log lists screens that have incorrectly defined filters. The most common problem is that none of the view Web template items has an Item Identifier of 1, which prevents the filter from displaying. Review the section of the log referenced above and make needed revisions.

The log is located here:



SIEBEL_TOOLS_INSTALL_DIR is the directory where Siebel Tools is installed.

To revise visibility filters to display correctly

  1. Query for one of the views listed in the reputility.log.
  2. For the view, select Base > View Web Template Item.
  3. Set the Item Identifier for the first applet in the list to 1.
  4. Refine the query to display the Parent Category listed in the log.
